Pros: Trados is a productivity tool that is indispensable for professional translators. It is the preferred platform of the industry and many clients require its use. Therefore, it is a good investment for professional translators. It has batch processing features and filtering options which aid in quality control and increase productivity.

Cons: The filtering functions could be better/more complex. I have experienced quite a few bugs over the years. Easily accessible customer support costs extra. Finding direct help from Trados without paying for the support package is like pulling teeth. Luckily, so many people use the software, it is usually easy and quick to find troubleshooting tips through online forums.

Overall: Productivity, brings me business.

Been using SDL Trados for years now - very happy and will continue to use it.

Pros: It does what it needs to and it does it well. Very well recognized name with other vendors so easy to find people who use it.

Cons: Sometimes the updates and licensing can be a bit of a pain.
Unless you pay extra the support turn around time can be a bit slow (but they are always friendly and will do everything they can for you)

Overall: Translations are done better and faster.

Pros: Productivity boost, PDF reader, ease of use, great design.

Cons: The price point.

Overall: In my opinion, SDL Trados is the most complete CAT tool on the market.
As well as offering basic features such as automatic alignment and adaptive TMs, the more advanced functionalities such as AutoSuggest, PerfectMatch or termbase integration will greatly boost your productivity.
It also offers some project management and preparation capabilities, which do come in handy.
Further useful plug ins and apps can be found on the SDL AppStore, although purchasing the individual licenses can get pricy.
All in all, a great proudct, though there are cheaper CAT tools out there .
