How easy is it to learn?

A very promising CAT tool
Review by 
Jorge Herran . It is an outstanding CAT tool, I have worked with SDL, Fluency, OmegaT and other CAT tools and in most cases this one allows me to work faster using a much better quality automatic translation as a base for my work, I still have to learn more about it, but so far, even if it lacks of many features, looks like a very promising CAT tool.

How easy is it to learn?

MateCat is the smartest, fastest and most accurate tool I've ever worked with, it makes your work (and your life) easier, I would absolutely recommend to my colleagues
Review by 
ElenaLozano . I've been a freelance translator for 17 years, I've worked with most of the translation tools, most of the time I prefer to translate 'the old fashion way'. However, MateCat is by far the best tool I've ever used, it helps to translate real big projects in record times, with an incredible final layout (just as the source document), helps with spelling, highlights the mistakes (using google spelling corrector. you can correct them easily)...I can say it is the best tool EVER!

How easy is it to learn?

Simply the best
Review by 
Francisco Reinoso Rodríguez . I have worked with several CAT tools, but this is simply great. You can use a machine translation for free or the useful concordance tool, where you can find previous translations for a specific term. The best is that it is free and it is online, so you can translate even from a tablet or smartphone. If you have a question or issue, you will get an answer from the support in some minutes. I strongly recommend MateCat!
