    Exclamation Passolo Acquisition

    The last month SDL announced the acquisition of Passolo (one of the most important localization tools - not CAT).

    It is obvious that now this company become the Microsoft empire of the translation industry..... do you think that this will affect us all?

    Default Passolo

    It might affect us in the long run, I mean, if SDL starts acquiring all the main translation tools...I wonder...

    What does Passolo do that makes it different from others?

    I thought they were CAT tools too.
    What is Passolo then? A localization tool? is that what it's called?

    What about TagEditor? So many questions in my head...

    With Tageditor you can translate documents in general (word, excel, html, also standard localization formats such XLIFF). However, if you are in the industry of "software" localization you probably use a tool that can work with a large number of software specific formats, such as exe, java, software binary files, java, microsoft.net. Passolo manage entire projects in multiple languages, tageditor is just a translation tool.

    Ah great, perfectly clear. That's right, TagEditor does not handle all formats.
    It works best with graphic design tools like InDesign I think, but not with software.
    Thanks!! Always so helpful and knowledgeable
