Overall Satisfaction with GlobalLink AI

I use the tool to assist me translating texts containing full or partial matches to what's in the tool's Translation Memory. The texts are related to luxury products and can be either technical or general. The idea is to check if a section/sections of the text have been translated before and, if that's the case, repeating it in the content you're translating for consistency purposes. It's also very handy to create a glossary and refer to it quickly while you're working.
  • The glossary is good to work with
  • Slow, bugs and errors aren't uncommon, logs you out suddenly, sometimes doesn't save what you've worked on even if you commit/save strings
  • No shortcut-available, you have to mouse-click a lot, makes work less intuitive
  • Confusing interface
  • Not sure if it's the tasks' setup once they're sent to linguists, but sometimes almost exact matches don't show up automatically. You have to search bits of a sentence to hopefully find an exact match that had been translated before, but for some reason didn't show as a suggestion. That takes up a huge amount of time.
  • Positive: Helps with content consistency (using the same terms/phrase matches throughout the years)
  • Positive: Good glossary building for repeated, technical terms and names
  • Negative: I feel it slows work down rather than speeding it up, which is the idea behind using a CAT tool
It's the slowest of them all and the design/interface/usability is a little 1990. I also don't feel as confident that it will save my work to the cloud like the others do, because it has logged me out suddenly and didn't save the last strings I had worked on, even if I had committed them and saved them.

Do you think TransPerfect GlobalLink delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with TransPerfect GlobalLink's feature set?


Did TransPerfect GlobalLink live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of TransPerfect GlobalLink go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy TransPerfect GlobalLink again?


It's effective for translating technical content, but there are faster, more intuitive, and visually cleaner tools that are out there. It's a bit clunky and requires too many different steps for different things in my opinion.
