Trados not for MAC Jan 14, 2006

Trados runs only under Windows. You can run Trados on a Mac with an emulation program such as Virtual PC. However, Trados will run much, much slower.
As far as I know, Wordfast runs also on a Mac. Maybe that's an alternative for you?

check the forums Jan 14, 2006

You might want to check the forums as this topic has been discussed previously. You might get some more ideas from colleagues that do use the Mac for translating. There's also the Mac user forum.
Don't give up yet...
