Just go, download and try Feb 25, 2009

Only you can answer this question for you.

Browsing the archives of the WF group in Yahoo! can be informative.

Try it! Feb 25, 2009

I have been working with Wordfast for a time now and I consider it a nice, friendly Cat Tool. It may take some time to go through/understand all its functions. Starting to work is the way you get through and , at the same time, reading/testing the manual as you face any difficulty.

It is not so expensive and it has a nice support team. This makes a difference!

Good Luck!

Give it try; works for me. Feb 25, 2009

I've been using it for 2 to 3 years now. I have to admit that I haven't tried other products, but after using the demo version for a while, I decided it was a good tool to have. It so happens that a client of mine is doing a website makeover and since I translated the original one, huge portions of the new site are in my translation memory...

It's light, effective, does the job for me. If you're not sure, you need to try the demo version. Any translator that has never used a CAT tool, should a least give one a try.
