Does anybody know where I can possibly get some information on the number of licenses sold fo each CAT tool every year, dating back possible to the last 5 years at least?

Thank you in advance for your help, kind regards

Milena

Have you tried asking the companies themselves? Aug 20, 2003

Salve,

I guess that has to be the most reliable source.

Do you really think so?

: ) maybe not but... Aug 21, 2003

I see what you mean but I can't think of any other source that could have more reliable data about that subject. A different matter is if these companies would give real data or they are going to "inflate" it and play the "we are the industry's standard" game.

I mean, some associations might know how many of its members own or use CAT tools, but that would only apply to its members.

See for yourself Aug 21, 2003

The only hard figures I have are for OmegaT. They can be viewed at

http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/omegat
Select "View project activity statistics", "View reports" - "Monthly".

This shows that 1,368 people have downloaded OmegaT so far this year. Or, if you prefer, one person has downloaded it 1,368 times.

Although not an indication of total sales, a broad indication of the RELATIVE popularity of the various products can be gained from the activity on their respective mailing lists.
