Interesting Dec 30, 2004

And "At present about 70% of the market is using TRADOS". This should be interesting for most translators. Personally I was not aware of that this number was so high...

The number of people and companies who participated in this survey, number less than 300 (if I remember correctly). And little distinction is made between "freelancers" and "companies" (although a distinction is made on number of words, however, the lower bracket is simply "less than one million words per year", which will include both companies and freelancers without further distinction). So... 70% uses Trados may not mean that 70% of freelancers or even 70% of smaller companies use Trados.

I also wonder how many of the people who "use" Trados really use it or simply own it and use it limitedly. The survey makes no distinction here either. Also, remember that many participants use more than one tool. So 70% does not imply an *exclusive* 70% market share (more is explained in the report itself).
