Catbo, the brand new web service for translators.

Let me introduce the brand new web service for translators, Catbo.

Catbo is a free computer-assisted translation web service, CAT; it is designed to help a human translator to translate documentation and other texts. Automatic machine translation systems available today like Google Translate are not able to produce high-quality translations.

Catbo has full support for texts in the HTML and XHTML formats. To make sure Catbo is a high quality and a modern product just look at the project HTML5_enru which aims to translate the latest HTML5 specification into Russian. Our next goal is to support wikipedia/mediawiki format, pdf and so on (odt/docx/xml/docbook/rst/…).

Every Catbo user may help to translate documents. Moreover, we the Catbo developers encourage users to participate in making translations in a wiki manner. Join our forum at, where you can ask questions about Catbo and discuss your projects.

So, you are welcome to try Catbo!
