I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 with 1918 MB of RAM.

Sorry for the elementary question, but after years of not working with any TM tool, I've purchased Wordfast, and I'd also like to soon purchase Trados.

Thank you!!

Multiple CATs Dec 17, 2008

I use many CATs on my PC.
Reason: Seek the best performances with my target jobs.
Example.
1. SDXL for quick alignment.
2. Trados for TM handling/conversion
3. Wordfast for EN>TH pair etc. [Thai needs special segmentation rules]
4. Across for special file format conversions before translation.
5. OmegaT as freeware.
6. Transit as trial version software.

No problem for me Dec 17, 2008

I have both Wordfast (5.5 version) and Trados working on my computers and never had any problem using them.

Good luck!

Not this combination Dec 17, 2008

In fact, I too have multiple CATs on my computer.
So far, I only had trouble with Logoport, which ruined my toolbar in Word.
I had to remove it, and now everything (including Wordfast and Trados) works fine.

Thank you! Dec 17, 2008

Thanks to all of you for replying. You've put my mind at ease. Now I will hope that the quota is reached for the group buy currently being offered, so that I can get Trados at a reduced price.

Warm regards,

Bob
