I am translator and I would like to know if there is any Computer Assisted Translation tool to use with Ubuntu. I've heard about programs such as Swordfish and so on. Does anybody know how is it and where can I get it?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

From the list shown on the wikipedia page for Computer Assisted Translation, I successfully used on Ubuntu :

  • the local application POEdit (in a single user context)
  • the web server Pootle (for a multi user/multi project context).

Omegat comes to mind. It's a "free translation memory application written in Java. It is a tool intended for professional translators." (Source)

Install via the software center
