Link: 139 (Mostly) Free Tools for Translators

Today marked the publishing of a blog post by our dear colleague Alina Cincan over at Inbox Translation, and it sure is an exciting day for those of us who want to discover new software tools. This is, as far as we know, one of the best and most comprehensive lists of free (or almost free) tools for translators. In total, 72 translators, including Judy, contributed to this list, and we want to try them all out right away! We hadn't heard of some 60% of these tools, so this list has already benefited us immensely. As you might imagine, compiling this information and getting the submissions from 72 translators is a ton of work, so we'd like to thank Alina very much for undertaking this project that benefits translators around the globe.

Thank you so much for your wonderful words!! That image (I assume you used Canva) is so very pretty!! Thanks for contributing and for sharing. I can't wait to hear about the new tools you've discovered on this list once you've given them a try.

Thanks for this post, some of the tools I already knew. Allow me to point out another good one: Cleanup Tasks (it is actually a plugin for sdl, but helps a lot.
