While this may sound obvious, many translators are unaware of the fact that the CAT tools they use daily have options to rebind the keyboard shortcuts to anything they might prefer.

This option can be used to solve issues with existing shortcuts overlapping in your computer and creating unintended results. It is also very useful when you want to make sure your dictionary software interacts smoothly with your CAT tool.

Optimising the CAT tool’s keyboard shortcuts effectively means you never have to lift your hands from the keyboard and can keep on translating.
