Translation management tools have grown ever more ambitious, from the first workgroup servers to client/server architectures to web servers to multi-tenant services and elastic cloud deployment. The conception of the translation knowledge worker’s “workstation” has undergone continual change, in step with the underlying technology. The next browser-based dashboards, brim-full of linguistic tools and assets, will allow increasingly sophisticated online workers to organize their own virtual workstations. CSA Research calls these user-customizable environments of the near future “cloudtop” applications. 

In this brief we: 1) outline the progression from standalone installed software to cloudtop environments; 2) describe characteristics and benefits of such tools; and 3) connect this new model to the ongoing shift to Agile development.
