Software tools or Computer Aided Translation (CAT) tools help human translators to increase their efficiency, quality and consistency in their translation work by learning the once translated sentences. When same sentence, or similar, needs to be translated again, the software "remembers" it and translates it automatically. This speeds up the translation process, ascertains that correct terms are used and that same thing is said the same way each time, which is especially important in a world where brands are ever more important.
