I can currently think of NO advantages to NOT using CAT!

Sure, there are sometimes drawbacks related to certain jobs which do not lend themselves to CAT, e.g. scanned pages etc. But those kinds of job only leave me wishing even more that I could use CAT...

CAT improves speed (time is money) and accuracy, end of story, for me! I am a convert, as you can see!

P.S. I use Trados, it drives me crazy, it's full of bugs and idiosyncrasies, but I would never work without it (or something better, if it comes along!) again.
