Dear freelance translator:

I'm looking for 5 or more freelance translators who I can interview about TM systems.
I want to know which functions of TM systems are the most useful and appreciated by freelance translators. I'm writing a paper in which I compare Trados Studio 2011 and memoQ. Of course, I can compare a lot of functions, but I would like to know which functions freelance translators honestly think to be the most important for them. Then I may can draw a conclusion (which my teacher would appreciate).

* Do you appreciate TM systems?
* Why do you use TM systems?
* Which TM systems do you use (Trados Studio, memoQ, etc.)?
* Which type of texts do you translate?
* Are you a new, moderate experienced or experienced TM user?
* What are the most important aspects or functions of a TM for you? Why?
* Which was the first TM you ever used?
* In which country do you life and which languages do you translate?
* Do you think you have strong IT skills?
* I you bought several TM systems, which do you uses the most? Or which do you not use (anymore) and why?

Would you like to help me by shortly answering those questions?

Yours sincerely,

Els Eerdekens
