Almost all CAT tools avaliable for linux in one solid distro aimmed to and created by translators...
Saddly, Anaphraseus, wich is the one and only alternative to WordFast Classic is not included by default. However it is very easy to install it as a LibreOffice plugin.
It would be better if they switch from XFCE to LXQt (my opinion) and include a full set of locales instead of the 4 ones.
Some of the distro packages are a bit outdated and others are abandonware. However it is so complete, that with only a few minor tweaks it become one of the BESTs translation plataforms in the world, Matching the most expensive ones for FREE!
