Protemos is integrated with SmartCAT system, so you can create projects in Protemos, and then copy them to SmartCAT.

If you do not have SmartCAT account, you can register it directly from the SmartCAT integration page.

Here you can also get a SmartCAT API key for Protemos, as it differs from your normal SmartCAT username and password.

To do so, please click on the corresponding links:
