Rigi key features
  1. Translate in context (WYSIWYG): select a text in the Trados Studio editor will automatically load a preview and highlight the selected text. 
    The other way around works too: selecting a text in the preview will select the segment in your Trados Studio editor.
  2. Process review comments from language testers: select a comment that a language tester made, will show the preview with the text highlighted.
    It will also select the segment in your Trados Studio editor, where you can copy the suggested translation.

The Rigi plugin for Trados Studio supports in-context editing of dynamic software applications.
