I answered "Other" as I really don't pay attention to that and just don't know.

As for me, it is like asking 'how long are most of your pieces of string?'

My TMs vary enormously, from a couple of hundred units to nearly a million.

I simply don't know, but I do know that they vary from very small to very large, depending on the client.

It is funny, sometimes it seems that if you do not use any CAT tools, you are old-fashioned, not reliable, or in some way a worse translator. Recently some polls have been submitted about CAT tools, and at the end of the day, the most voted options (and related comments) have always led to the idea that most translators do not use any CAT tools.

About me, I use wordfast only sometimes, and my TM are definitely very small.
99% of my work is without CAT tools.

I am an old-fashioned, not reliable and very bad translator too...
My work is 100% CAT-free.
