Our toolbox

A craftsman cannot do without reliable equipment. The same is true for translators. That is why we make their life a little easier with a set of handy tools to supplement their experience and talent for translating.

Of course, it’s not just about supporting our translators, you also stand to gain from our efforts: your translations take less time to complete, are more consistent in terms of language use and therefore better. Regardless of the source text’s format.

Do you have questions or comments about your translations or our approach? Your dedicated project manager would be happy to assist you. You can count on that.

CAT tools

We use CAT tools to ensure that your translations match your preferences 100%. Computer Aided Translation, CAT to its friends, is software that enables segments of translated text to be reused and glossaries to be built and consulted. The result is valuable time saved for you and our translators – and it offers a breather for your budget.

Translation memories

No one likes to repeat work. ElaN uses the most advanced tools to construct your translation memories, such as SDL Trados and MemoQ. This allows us to use fragments, phrases and whole sentences from 'old' translations in new ones. So, the more detailed your feedback on our translation work, the better the translation memory and therefore the translation. 


Bodywork or coachwork? Correct and consistent terminology is vital to your company’s communications. ElaN makes sure that your preferred terms will always be used in translations. We are happy to provide you with glossaries based on our translation work that you can then validate or modify through the MyTranslation online platform. A win-win situation.

File formats

Will your web designer deliver your website in  xml or php? Do you need a PowerPoint presentation translated fast into another language? Time-consuming cutting and pasting won't be required: we return the translated files in the format of your choice. File formats: Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), Adobe InDesign (CS6), xml, php, csv. Other formats on request.
