So it is getting late, and I've spent too much time in Studio today and this came into my head while listening to Addicted to Chaos by Megadeth and desparately trying to get to the end of this file.

Only yesterday they told me TRADOS is down
All these normal CATs, will I find a workaround?
MemoQ on my back, aching in my bones
I forgot you said "One day you'll translate alone"
I said I need you, does that make me wrong?
Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong?
My wrists are blackened, so bloody red
A PerfectMatch in my heart, a fuzzy match in my head

Who will speed me up?
Where's the repetition?
Where's your term for me?
Is this my final match?
Tangled abstract fallacy
Random turmoil from agencies
I'm addicted
Addicted to TRADOS

Matches shined down on me
Turn bad days into good
No breakdowns/translation blocks
I matched 'em 'cause I could
My brain was laboured
My head would spin
Don't let me down, don't give up, don't give in
The rain comes down, cold wind blows
Don't go down that object not set road
Reset the window layout
Remember that you said
"One day you'll translate alone"

Who will speed me up?
Where's the repetition?
Where's your term for me?
Is this my final match?
In this dream I cannot see
A badly segmented fallacy
Random concordance builds in me
I'm addicted to TRADOS!

Who will speed me up?
My CTRL+ENTER Hand?
Will Java turn on me?
Is this my final stand?
In a dream I cannot see
Tangled abstract fallacy
Random turmoil builds in me
builds
builds
builds
In a dream I cannot see
Tangled abstract fallacy
Random turmoil builds in me
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to TRADOS

Addicted
Addicted
To TRADOS
To TRADOS
Addicted to TRADOS
To TRADOS

My thoughts go out to anyone with a tight deadline tonight!

The only reason that I can think of for a Trados addiction is that you haven't tried memoQ.

Oops - at first I misread that as "get to the end of this life".

Sounds like your song....

Isn't additiction about something that you can't get away from? I do use and enjoy using memoq but Studio is a fixed part of my day job!

Side effects?
And what if you get caught driving under the influence?
Oh my!
