Slate™ Trial Edition

Slate™ Trial Edition includes the important features you need to convert your translation memories to engines and review how they perform. Our application process helps protect you from viruses and us from software pirates.

Languages

Slate supports two languages from among the 33 possible languages (click here). With your TMs, it can can translate between the two languages in either direction.

30-Day License

The fee Slate Trial Edition gives a 30-day license under an end-user-license agreement (EULA) to use the Slate software on your machines.

Single Activation

Your single-user license allows you to install your Slate product on one machine. The installer activates the installation with our activation server. The uninstaller automatically reverses it. You can purchase Slate Connector Edition to work with your engines another computer to work on-the-road at a conference or to pre-translate projects for distribution.

Expert Review

We’ll help you understand how your first engine performs. Send us the automated evaluation report. We’ll review the performance with you.

System Requirements

Operating Systems

    • Microsoft Windows, 64-bit
      • Windows 7 64-bit with Service Pack 1
      • Windows 8 or 8.1 64-bit
      • Windows 10 64-bit
    • Linux, x86_64 kernel version 3.2+
      • Ubuntu 16.04 or newer (other Debian-based on request)
      • CentOS/RHEL-based (other RPM-based on request)

Hardware

    • Processor (CPU): x86-64/x64 quad-core processor at 2.5 GHz or faster
      • Intel Core i3 (i7 4th gen or newer strongly recommended)
      • AMD Athlon 64
    • RAM (memory): 4 GB, 8 GB strongly recommended (16+ GB ideal)
    • System Hard Disk (program storage): 2 GB consumed by installation files
    • High-Performance Disk Space (workspace): 40+ GB of free space (250 GB or more strongly recommended)

Translation Memories

    • Personalized engine: 70,000 to 150,000 sentence segments.
      • One full-time translator’s production for 3 to 4 years is sufficient to create a personalized engine.
    • Customized engine: 200,000 to 500,000 sentence segments.
      • An engine for a team of translators requires more.
    • There is no upper limit.
      • Too many segments increases the risk of degrading the engine from peak performance.
