Using CAT tools is not only useful for the translators, but it can be of high importance to the customer as well. Customers who are not involved or interested in the translation industry may think it does not matter how their text is translated; their aim is to have it translated to their satisfaction.

Feedback in the translation industry can be defined in various ways, but if we want to summarise it in one sentence we could say that feedback relates to comments and suggestions about the quality of the translation and the relationship, designed to help someone improve. It is very important to highlight at the outset that feedback (even it is negative) is not the same thing as quality management and simple criticism or judgement without any constructive comments should not be seen as feedback.
