Hi everyone. I am new here, I apologise if the question has already been posted in the forum (I could nto find it).

I would like to purchase a translator software, but I have no clue on which would be the best option for a Mac.

Can someone please advise?

Thank you

Wordfast or others with a virtual machine Sep 29, 2018

Hi Monica,

there is a Wordfast version for Mac, I've been using that for years without any problems.
I think for almost everything else you'll need a virtual machine and run Windows on the Mac. I use Trados studio 2017 with Parallels and it's working well for me. You just need to make sure to have enough RAM for it to work well (at least 8 GB).

Try the 1 month free trial, it’s my preferred CAT tool, support is excellent!

What screen size? Sep 29, 2018

Do you use a 13 inch, 15 inch, 21 inch or 27 inch Mac? Any secondary screen?
