Smartcat uses a disruptive business model in the $50b language industry, connecting it to a market network where buyers and suppliers can connect, collaborate, and leverage our free-to-use workflow SaaS platform. We’re developing an online environment with professional translation tools offering comprehensive functionality which allows users to automate the translation process as well as related processes, such as:
CAT (Computer-Assisted Translation) tool aka Editor
Supplier selection and evaluation (Marketplace)
Integration with third-party content sources
Client management & team management (CRM functionality)
Supplier payments and invoicing
Our development process involves a variety of challenging tasks such as extracting translatable text from files and collecting translation quality metrics data. Ensuring the services our platform offers remain scalable and resilient is a challenge in itself.
Smartcat’s architecture is comprised of:
Backend: Net Framework 4.7.2 & ASP.Net (WebAPI): We’re currently migrating the application to .NET Core and modernizing the infrastructure — up to 50% of the codebase is on .NET Core in k8s.
Frontend: Vue.js 2.6 + Vuex + Typescript 3.7 (Partly Knockout.js).
Database: MongoDB 4.0.12.
