Abstract: We present the SCATE prototype: A Smart Computer-Aided Translation Environment, developed in the SCATE research project. Its user interface displays translation suggestions coming from different resources, in an intelligible and interactive way. It contains carefully designed representations that show relevant context to clarifY why certain suggestions are given. In addition, several relationships between the source and the suggestions are made explicit so the user understands how a suggestion can be used in order to select the most appropriate one. Well-designed interaction techniques are included that improve the efficiency of the user interface. The suggestions are generated through different web services, such as fuzzy matching based on a translation memory (TM), machine translation (MT) and terminology extraction. MT and TM are combined using a pre-translation mechanism. A lookup mechanism highlights terms in the source segment that are available with their translation equivalents in the bilingual glossary. This paper presents the interface and the underlying web services, and discusses preliminary evaluations of the interface and the pre-translation mechanism.
