Help! this means all CAT tools vendors will redesign their tools and another era of price escalation begins. This seems to have no end. I just wanted to share my opinion. BR Brandis

Which kind of price escalation do you mean? Sep 30, 2008

Even if I also do not like having a new version of a tool every year, this does not change so much for most of us.
So what price escalation? For InDesign user? Not necessarily, as similar to QuarkXPress or other DTP tools a lot of our customer will need long time until they will be using this version.

CAT tools.. Sep 30, 2008

Hi! Especially Trados and other industry leading tools will certainly redesign everything and very soon there will be newer version with newer workings and hence also cost higher price and there will certainly be newer Plug-ins and the whole discussion begins. I was generally indicating this. Ah not to forget the quark 7.3 edition comes with almost 500 plug-ins and loading the program itself takes it´s own time in addtion to upgrading the older quark files to the lastest finishing. Lately I had one such sitution of a long term qxd program of upgrading older archives done in e6.2 and 6.5 to the latest edition. I had purchased it at €uro 1300,- but the load to support that investment was not there, so investment losses onthat deal. But generally I am referring to CAT tool vendors. I am sure CS4 is a much better edition compared to those in the past. BR Brandis
