Is there an affordable cloud-based translation management system that meets the needs of start-up LSPs and freelance groups? This talk will evaluate several systems that may be appropriate to the translation volume, work flow and budgets of those users, based on features such as translation memory management, terminology management, project management, help materials, pricing, and user friendliness. Two-dimensional heat maps comparing these features in each system to the other examined systems will be presented. While these findings may be subjective, this talk aims to provide some real-world reference information for decisions that may be critical to the success of your projects.
