"This training was very interesting and full of suggestions for a translator who wants to improve his or her job. I think I' ll attend other trainings like this. Suzanne is a very professional person ready to help everybody with her training course.
If this is a question you have been asking yourself, resources available in ProZ.com videos area should shed some light on the topic:
Added just a few minutes ago, for Spanish speakers: http://www.proz.com/training/3523 by Clarisa Moraña. You will find in this presentation a complete overview of proprietary license and free and open source software like SDL Trados, WordFast, Across, Catalyst, Déjà Vu, Logoport, MemoQ, Metatexis, Passolo, and others, with information on estimated investment and best prices available in the market.
If you are looking for content in English, you should get started with the on demand video A comparison of CAT tools by Dr. Nicole Keller: http://www.proz.com/training/3217 An analysis of the five CAT tools: SDL Trados Studio 2009, Wordfast (Classic & Pro), Across, memoQ and Atril Déjà vu, giving the viewer a comparison of the major software tools prior to purchase or use.

“Very interesting training and great trainer! He was professional and kind, with a good and funny way to explain things and sparkle curiosity about an otherwise obscure (at least for me) subject as HTML. I hope to be able to attend the advanced course, too. http://www.proz.com/training/929”
