Hi Folks,
Before I switch, I just wanted to make sure some tools allow for translation of SDL Trados .ttx files on Mac.
Can you do some recommendations?
What are the pros and cons of each solution?

Comparison Jun 16, 2010

SLD Trados Tageditor is the native application for TTX files, but on a Mac it requires a virtual desktop environment, and possibly a higher overhead for the hardware.

Swordfish can run 'natively' on a Mac, because there is a version compiled to install and run on a Mac, and it can handle TTX files very well, provided that you work with files presegmented by Trados. If you use TTX files without Trados segments, Swordfish will create segments itself, but they will often be not what you would expect in TTX.
