Slate™ products are a blend of our proprietary components and open source utilities.
We distribute and license the proprietary components as products under the Slate™ EULA.
Slate supports any combination of 33 languages in your translation memories. What? You have Hebrew-Chinese TMs? No problem! Make engines with 1,056 possible language pairs, and you can add your own language support. Easy!
CorpusFiltergraph™ is Slate‘s workflow framework that manages all utilities and processing.
The master utilities import translation memories and prepare them to become engines.
The build utilities create Slate translation engines from segments prepared by the master utilities.
Backup utilities create backup packages with engines and translation memories. Restore utilities install the backup packages on other Slate™ systems.
Export utilities convert engines to self-contained packages. Restore utilities install exported packages and/or exported engines on other Slate™ systems.
The command-line application gives access to customize existing utilities and create new ones.
The graphical application’s dashboard gives you access to Slate‘s most common utilities.
The connectors interface manages the flow of source segments from your CAT to your Slate engine and suggestions from your engine to your CAT and forces terminology translations.
Samples include translation memories and other files to help you learn and practice.
