      I have just started my translation career. I am currently working as a freelance translator. I use limited number of translation tools currently. I think I am missing something. Are there any translation tools to increase my efficiency?

      P.S.: Grammarly, Google Drive, Dcitionaries, Onlinc OCR, SDL Trados are some of the transalation tools that I use currently. Can you recommend me some more translation tools?

      If you are talking just about CAT tools, OmegaT is the most common among of all CAT tools. Moreover, it is open-source and can basically replace SDL Trados.

      MateCAT, SmartCAT, Wordfast Anywhere are some of the translation tools I have used. There are many on the list.

      Thank you all for recommending me these translation tools. Not all of them are helpful for me, I will certainly start using some of these translation tools in the future.
