Translation tools

In today's world, no translator can afford to be without a range of good translation tools, and the translators at Keyword are no exception. We use a variety of proprietary and commercially available tools to boost the quality and consistency of our translations still further. These tools support the translators, but they do not do the work of translation nor do they relieve the translators of their responsibility to provide top quality. Behind every excellent translation there is an excellent translator, not a computer program.
