CAT - Computer aided translation

The CAT translation software (indispensable tool for every translator) significantly facilitates and accelerates the process of translation. This applies especially to technical translations, where occur frequent repetition of certain phrases, or even whole sentences.
In our many years’ practice, we use Trados (now in 2015 release), the most advanced package of CAT family available on the market. During operation, the memory database is complemented with the translations by ourselves or by others. The database mechanism allows both automatic translation of previously translated text fragments and prompting similar phrases. Using the program reduces the time and ensures consistency of terminology, even with translations done by other people.
Thus it can be automated many time-consuming procedures made in other cases manually:
- preparation of the document, the automatic introduction of translated excerpts from the translation memory, and
- the converting of the document into a final document, consistent with format and structure of the source document.
The translated units complement the translation memory - the database for current and future translations. It can be updated with any number of bilingual documents translated into Trados format.
Trados also supports the publishing tools such as Adobe Framemaker, InDesign, Interleaf, PageMaker and Quark.
Two simple steps come into the standard translation process: conversion of the source text into the translatable format and export it back afterwards.

What are cookies in computers?

Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions. Due to their core role of enhancing/enabling usability or site processes, disabling cookies may prevent users from using certain websites.

Cookies are created when a user's browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website's server. Computer Cookies are created not just by the website the user is browsing but also by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded. These cookies regulate how the ads appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.

Standard uses for browser cookies

Website servers set cookies to help authenticate the user if the user logs in to a secure area of the website. Login information is stored in a cookie so the user can enter and leave the website without having to re-enter the same authentication information over and over.

Session Cookies are also used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server's pages. By default, web pages really don't have any 'memory'. Cookies tell the server what pages to show the user so the user doesn't have to remember or start navigating the site all over again. Cookies act as a sort of “bookmark” within the site. Similarly, cookies can store ordering information needed to make shopping carts work instead of forcing the user to remember all the items the user put in the shopping cart.

Persistent or tracking Cookies are also employed to store user preferences. Many websites allow the user to customize how information is presented through site layouts or themes. These changes make the site easier to navigate and/or lets user leave a part of the user's “personality” at the site. For Information on session and persistent and tracking cookies, see here

Cookie security and privacy issues

Cookies are NOT viruses. Cookies use a plain text format. They are not compiled pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor are they self-executing. Accordingly, they cannot make copies of themselves and spread to other networks to execute and replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they fall outside the standard virus definition.

Cookies CAN be used for malicious purposes though. Since they store information about a user's browsing preferences and history, both on a specific site and browsing among several sites, cookies can be used to act as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are well aware of this problem and routinely flag cookies as candidates for deletion after standard virus and/or spyware scans.

Most browsers have built in privacy settings that provide differing levels of cookie acceptance, expiration time, and disposal after a user has visited a particular site.
