The work to develop a nine-language version of Cascot International was funded under the European Union FP7 project: Data Services Infrastructure for the Social Sciences and Humanities - DASISH (completion date: December 2014). The nine languages included were Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Slovak and Spanish. The upgraded software facilitated future extension to incorporate additional languages as and when relevant index materials became available.

In February 2016, a project began to extend Cascot to a further five languages (Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian and Russian). This has been funded by Synergies for Europe's Research Infrastructures in the Social Sciences (SERISS) via the European Social Survey European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ESS ERIC). A beta version of Cascot with all fourteen languages is now available for users to test. It is still undergoing further fine-tuning, especially for Hindi and Chinese and updated versions will be made available as testing is completed.

In any of the language versions coding is facilitated to both ISCO 08 and, where available, a relevant national occupational classification. Users have access to all language interfaces and classification files. The Cascot International package consists of three pieces of software: Cascot (the coding tool); Cascot Editor (the tool for creating and modifying classifications and fine-tuning the coding process); Cascot Performance Tool (for evaluating coding performance).

The available languages are:

Arabic; Chinese; Dutch; English; Finnish; French; German; Hindi; Indonesian; Italian; Portuguese; Romanian; Russian; Slovak; Spanish
