Computer Aided Translation or CAT is a software tool used by professional translators who are already fluent in the two languages they are translating. CAT tools often include terminology management and translation memory to enhance efficiency and accuracy of translation. For instance, we use SDL Trados in longer documents translation.

CAT is not Machine Translation (MT). MT is automated computer software translation.  It is basically word for word conversion, lack of understanding of the meaning of the source material, so that the nuances and tone of the original text cannot be properly rendered in the target language.
