CAT Zine

CAT stands for computer-aided translation: software that professional translators use to translate better and faster, and to have more fun in the process. But if you're here, you probably know that already. I think CAT tools are awesome, and my index finger agrees. So much so, in fact, that it went looking for a touchscreen and started drawing these graphics. I'm not quite sure what to call them: Comics? A fanzine? I went with CAT Zine.

I hope you'll enjoy looking at them. I'm certainly having tremendous fun drawing them, and while that lasts, they'll keep on coming.

Full disclosure: I work for Kilgray, creators of the world's most awesomest CAT tool, memoQ. But most of what you find in these drawings applies to all advanced CAT tools. My index finger is technology-agnostic.
