Publisher came free from attending the Proz.com conference. Will it suffice as my only CAT tool or do I need to invest further as a freelance translator? Many Thanks.

Catalyst is basically the software localization TM tool. it supports about 200 file formats and is focused on visually displaying the content in software interfaces and webpage formats in the parallel content manner.

Publisher was introduced to handle the traditionnally offline print and desktop publishing formats. So it supports Word (probably also Excel), Adobe Indesign, Quark Xpress, Adobe Framemaker.

Catalyst and Publisher are complementary, although I do recall there are some overlapping supported formats. that should be documented in the software features info on the website.
