I see again and again that posters complain about Across Personal Edition. Why is this? Is it difficult to use or does it lack important features?

I do not know Across Personal Edition. It was only suggested as a TM tool for people who do not want to buy a licence.

Thank you very much.

Very heavy Oct 30, 2013

For one thing, it's very heavy on resources. See my commented installation of Across PE 5.5 from one year ago.

Then, there's the "At a glance" user guide and its 744 pages. Is this German humour?

Across is actually a tool for which you need a manual, even if you are already familiar with other CAT tools. This is because they keep using their own terminology (everything is cross-this and cross-that), instead of the standard terminology used by everyone else in the industry.
