For those translators who peroform the bulk of their jobs from Spanish into English, what is the best translation software you\'ve come across? If you can mention some of the pros and cons of the aluded software, I would also appreciate it.

Many thanks to everybody.

Well, that is a difficult question. Each software has its pros e cons.

I prefer Trados, but it is expensive.

Transit is more complex to work with, but you can add references and dictionaries.

But there is a new tool available (for free) that combines these two. WORDFAST is very similar to Trados, but you can add dictionaries, glossaries and references.

You can download it at http://www.geocities.com/wordfast/cat.html
