BWX, your safe and efficient translation platform from Bureau Works!

5.0 last year

Comments: With the excellent features of its platform, Bureau Works has taken pioneering steps to help us navigate the future of the translation industry shaped by AI. BWX has everything that will guarantee the delivery of your translation projects safely and on time. Intuitive, fast, and user-friendly, the BWX interface combines all the features that linguists need.Nowadays, clients have worried that linguists might be using free and insecure machine-translation engines, like Google Translate, as a shortcut to complete their tasks. This may comprise the clients' confidential information and allow third parties to access sensitive client data.Nonetheless, BWX keeps your data under look and key. So, rest assured that no third parties will access your data. At the same time, translators will save time and effort by utilizing AI to complete their jobs. This will eliminate the guilty feeling of using machine translation, and produce creative and error-free texts perfectly suited for the context at hand.

Pros:

AI integration could be the essential feature added recently to the BWX platform. The tool is user-friendly and easy to use. Through webinars, online meetings, and step-by-step tutorials, Bureau is spending every effort to teach linguists how to best utilize BWX.

Cons:

Only one feature needs to be added; right-left marks that are of crucial importance for Arabic. I submitted a request to the technical team and they are working on it.

Top tier software!

5.0 last year

Pros:

I have to say the software is top notch. Easy to use and very efficient in all ways. It also is the first time I've used AI as a part of my workflow and I'm positively surprised about its capability. There is no doubt in my mind it's one of the best platforms I've encountered in my ~8 years journey with translations.Also can recommend for customers - The workflow and quality are very much above average and guaranteed there will be no problems with whatever tasks you have!

Cons:

I can't think of anything negative or what would need adjusting for now. Maybe sometimes the internal messaging is a bit confusing and it's hard to keep on track who is responsible for what projects but that is mostly due to me mixing up names and being just me haha!

The user-frendliest Cat tool I have experienced. All features work perfectly.

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: It's been great! No other Cat tool has satisfied that much.

Pros:

Glossaries work in tune with the editor. The glossary (TermBase) words are recognized by the Machine Translation on the fly! The MT learns from the Translation Memory and glossaries.

Cons:

There is no Cons. But, I wish BW had an option to delete projects created that are no longer used or needed. Also, a way to find and replace a word in the TM box.
