That is a very good question.
Please continue to explore this matter and let us know what you find out. I am just as curious about Trados, especially after my latest oil and gas project.
I worked briefly with a trial version of Trados, but I found three features not very attractive:
1. The learning curve is somewhat steep. It is not as intuitive as I would have it. I am sure that after proper training and some experience, one would gain facility, but the initial experience was somewhat discouraging.
2. The price was steep too, much more so than other translation memory tools. I assume it is worth it. The question is can one afford it (even the freelancer version)?
3. In my case, my computer was so antiquated that I needed to upgrade my hardware first before I could make use of such a program. That is what I am trying to accomplish currently.
So please explore Trados and report back to us. Perhaps you can start a Forum discussion. You will get better engagement there than in KudoZ, where we mostly deal with terms, as you know.
Good luck with all.

Trados is not the best. And this is not the place!
This is not the place! Kudoz is for terminology questions. You should ask such questions in the Forum section.
