Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to analyse how application of the CAT software assists a human translator from the perspective of beginner translators. However, individual features offered by different CAT software differ from product to product, most of them contain main modules as such translation memory and translation management system, and offer collaborative translation, sharing of TMs and term bases with other translators. Compared to machine translation MT, the real task of translation in computer aided translation CAT is made by the human translator. He is also the one who is responsible not only for the final quality of target text, but also for proper handling TMs and TBs. The question is, what are the costs and benefits of using CAT software, particularly creating and using TMs and term bases by translators beginning computer aided translation.
