Trados is one of the Industry leaders. Trados does a decent job in several aspects and it is not so difficult to learn. Most translators will learn how to operate it without formal or paid training.The major cons are bugs that remain in despite of frequent and expensive software updates. Expect to face all kind of translator’s nightmares including crashes leading to hours of work lost, conversion filters that will not work as supposed, translation memory issues, poor customer service.Yes, Trados sounds pretty much like the “Windows” of the Translation software world.
