Best / Most-Used Web-Based CAT-Tool: Your Opinion, Availability of Research
Thread poster: Ella Luz

Hi Everyone!

1. What is your favorite online CAT tool and why do you prefer it to other web-based tools? Which has the most / most useful features?

Are you aware of any recent and fairly comprehensive study or survey conducted comparing online CAT tools to each other?

2. What is the most-used web-based tool?

Is there any market analysis or statistical data revealing the numbers of users of individual online CAT tools (e. g. in %, i. e. in relation to each other) or information on the positioning of their respective providers on the online CAT tool market?

Thank you a lot in advance!

Best Regards

Helen

Nope.

There's this list, though:

And why should we do the market research for a 3rd party who reveals no info about who she/he is, why he/she wants this info or what his/her own results are so far?

I can offer you a detailed report on your questions and I would be happy to discuss what you want to know, so that I can send you a quote.
