Is this better than Trados Tag Editor??

Riccardo said...

I've not used QA distiller myself (I use another tool for QA - XBench), but I would say the most important difference is that TagEditor is a translation tool, while QA Distiller is a QA tool. Therefore there are (I beleve) more QA features in QA distiller than in TagEditor.

I See.. So We can try it out for better consistency?

There are new tools for QA all the time.

Software changes constantly.

We are always writing posts about software and we would be pleased to have your comments.

Best regards,

Agree with the comments about TagEditor. Although TagEditor in general is a pain to use. But Trados Studio, in its new version, does almost everything. Sometimes I do wonder, though, just how much translation software is out there? And who really uses it?

I study in detail but I didn't found any difference.

Little to do with Tag Editor: Tag Editor is a tool for translation, it includes some QA future, but its main purpose is to translate. QA distiller, AFAIK, is exclusively a QA tool.

Translation software has done its part in trying to assist man with communication. All said and done, there are still those documents you cannot translate using software as only man himself can handle the task.Click Here! For more details.

Hi Jane! How are you doing? We are a translation company too holding a reputation of being the leading service provider in translation. Can you please elaborate your service a bit implicitly? It will be rather better for us to decide about your offering.
