...to Trados support.

AFAIK Trados only runs on Windows. This is confirmed on the Trados Knowledge Base, as well as in the system requirements for T6.5 Freelance, for example:

TRADOS 6.5 Freelance runs on Windows 98 (Second Edition), Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.


Maybe someone has come up with an emulation?

HTH, Ralf

It could be possible… Apr 1, 2004

Hello,

some Mac users have reported that they could install successfully Trados via the PC emulation software VirtualPC.

You could ask this question on the MacLingua-group or on the Apple / Mac Forum

Good luck!
Jean-François

TW_users Apr 1, 2004

Hi again,
You might want to check the archives of the TW_users; maybe someone there has come up with a solution.

Best, Ralf

With USB dongle Apr 1, 2004

On MacLingua there's currently a thread running about Trados under Virtual PC. It seems the USB dongle has made it possible, but you need a lot of speed and RAM.
Best luck

Virtual PC Apr 2, 2004

I was forced to use Trados on my Mac recently while my laptop was being repaired. I have a G4 Dual Processor 450, so not quite the latest machine out there, but still usually pretty fast. However, with Virtual PC, it was unbearably slow, and I hope I don't have to repeat this experience again in the near future! It's definitely no solution for the daily work. In addition, I suffered a good number of crashes... ;-(

You need Parallels Desktop + Windows, and then you can run any Windows programme you want to, fast, in parallel with the Mac OS and enabling you to copy/paste between different programmes in both Windows and Mac OS without needing to reboot.

There's an excellent Parallels demo at their website, showing you how it works:

http://www.parallels.com/uk/products/desktop/

and you can try it for free in Demo mode.

Mac Feb 6, 2010

Hi,

Wordfast and Swordfish work perfecty fine on Mac.
Support at Swordfish is fast and efficient, TM's exchange fine.
No problem reading Trados files and updating Trados TM's.

Have a look at them, I'm sure you'll like it.

Boot Camp Feb 6, 2010

In Snow Leopard there's a tool called Boot Camp, which allows you to install Windows XP or Windows 7 on your Mac.
You can choose Windows OS as your default system, or each time when you boot your Mac, press Alt key, you can choose either Snow Leopard or Windows OS.
I have a Mac and I am using Windows 7 on it now, Trados 2009 works fine.
Here's more information about Boot Camp (It's built in Snow Leopard, you don't need to download it for Apple website)

True Henry, but the big difference with Parallels Desktop (see my previous post above) is that (a) you don't need to reboot and b) you can run both systems at the same time.

The advantages are obvious !

Yes it's possible but not worth it Feb 7, 2010

I have Trados installed on my MacBook through VMware Fusion which is just another "Mac recommended" software that allows you to work on both MAC and PC environments. These virtual machines slow down your computer quite considerably and I found it to be very inconvenient, slow and frustrating to use Trados on my Mac. It is possible but it's not worth the pain.
