Thank you + a few questions and comments Sep 13, 2020

Thank you for your valuable advice, Lucia! I have just a few questions and comments.

I've been using MacBook Pro with 16 GB for 4 years and I'm satisfied. Everything is better than going back to windows.

Could you provide your Mac's technical specifications? Also, I understood that you regularly use Trados and MemoQ on your virtual machine. Is this correct? If yes, are they fast enough and/or do you have any issues?

I understand that you need to buy windows and office to run Trados or MemoQ on Parallels.

Do you mean that in order to run Trados (or use some of its features) you need to buy Office on the Windows virtual machine? I would rather use Office on macOS.

I still don't understand why they aren't creating a version for Mac users, as now there are much more translators using it.

This is a mystery to me as well. I guess it would be a huge software development (read: financial) effort.

Before buying one of them, give a look at all CATs and watch videos (there are many in their websites or online) to see which one is better for you and do the one-month trial. Also the layout is important, as it is the tool you'll work with for many hours per day.

You are absolutely right; I should probably stop thinking that having Trados is dogma and adopt a more open-minded approach. Even if I end up deciding to buy a certain CAT tool, no one will force me to use it forever, right?
