Hi all,
I don't quite know if this is the right forum, but as the merger has consequences not only regarding the technical aspects of CAT usage but instead affects the translation business as a whole, I decided to post it here.

Hope it's not already buried somewhere else in this forum - at least I couldn't find it with a quick search.

Anyway, this link points to the results of a survey conducted by the Globalization and Localization Association in July among SDL and Trados customers and offers quite a few interesting insights & thoughts, imo.

But enough of the talk - here it is:

Happy reading,
Benjamin
