Smartling engineers obsess over building software that not only empowers users to translate faster, better, and more cost-effectively, but delights them with every interaction as well. Our CAT (Computer Assisted Translation) tool — used by thousands of translators, project managers, and account owners every day — represents a critical part of this mission.
Today, after months of discussion with our translation community, we’re excited to offer a first look at our latest edition.
In this post, you will learn exactly what’s new within the tool, where to go for additional support, and what to expect over the next few weeks.
Why The New Experience?
To build the best CAT tool on the market, we realized we’d have to renew our commitment to helping users achieve their goals. As a result, we focused our design process exclusively around three key results:
We wanted our latest edition to delight both first-time CAT tool users and long-time industry veterans with years of experience using traditional translation software. Key additions include a fully redesigned editor experience, improved accessibility to linguistic assets, and a variety of quality check features to address mechanical errors.

We will also be hosting a live training webinar and expanding our technical support content so that you can continue using Smartling with confidence.
