Abstract

The students were asked about the use of matecat. It has strength points; (1) providing field categories of the source text, (2) breaking down the text into parts so it is easier for translator to work with without having to copy-paste the parts, (3) recording the process of translating so the translator can leave their works anytime without losing them, (4) giving the results in form of various types of file so it is easier to edit or proofread it, (5) producing text based on the original format without changing numbering or paragraph spacing, (6) providing free-account. Its weaknesses are; (1) it works only with the internet, (2) it needs editing and proofreading processes since there are some parts from the original text that are not translated. Despite the weaknesses, matecat.com is worth to try since it offers efficiency and practicality
