Grammarly
Grammarly is a step ahead of the traditional spelling and grammar checking tool that is in-built with Microsoft Word. There are scenarios when you have to write long-form content, and depending on your normal day-to-day way of speech, you tend to write content using the same tone and sentence constructs. There may be nothing "wrong" as such, but Grammarly points out those small glitches in your text, which you considered to be correct but is not really correct. One such area is the usage of "passive voice" in the sentences that I used to write. I find Grammarly really helpful here.

SDL Trados Studio is extremely well suited for expert CAT tool users. More novice users will have trouble getting up to speed. I have an office full of employees that constantly ask questions on how to do specific tasks, mainly because the task sequence is not obvious and is only uncovered by rote repetition of the same things. If you learn and apply the same techniques repeatedly, it becomes easier, but it seems the software was designed by software people, sometimes with little thought to the end users who have to figure it out. I don't know that professional training should be so necessary.

Pros
Grammarly
  • Integration with existing tools - Grammarly works in practically all text areas across your browser, including email and things like Google Docs, etc.
  • Quality control - the meat of Grammarly is checking your text and writing in real-time, directly as you type. Most of the time, Grammarly provides very accurate recommendations and quality checks on your text.
  • Analytics and reporting - Grammarly sends regular updates via email about your usage statistics and other detailed info. This type of reporting can be very helpful in tracking your progress over time.

  • Xbench plugin works great. You can run Xbench on the whole project with one click.
  • TM and TB management
  • It is one of the most common CAT tool thus it is easy for translator assignments.

Cons
Grammarly
  • Somewhat expensive.
  • Grammarly itself does not guarantee 100% correctness.
  • Sometimes, it does not remove the marked error even when you have corrected it.
  • Its MS office version faces some issues with plagiarism detection. I have to go on the web version to use plagiarism detection.

  • Preview feature
  • Accessing server-based TM often takes time.
  • When connecting to server-based TM, I need to enter credentials twice every time. The first attempt always fails.

Usability

I can easily access it in Word by clicking on the menu widget - where I do most of my writing. (Would love one for Powerpoint too???)

Again, the list of functions is impressive but the way it is organized (not process-driven) and the fact that complex tasks should be close to basic tasks make the product suitable to hardcore users that have a lot of time to research the manuals and blogs. By the way, Nora Diaz is one of the most respectable users of this product. Her videos help a lot!

Support Rating
Grammarly
I have not really used customer support. I used the FAQ page to see how to re-install Grammarly because it wasn't functioning properly in longer documents. It seems to be working better now, but it still does not always underline all of the issues in the actual text. Thus, it is sometimes difficult to know where the errors are located.

We rarely had any issues with SDL safe for a few bugs that we fixed promptly in the upcoming service packs and updates.

I have not used anything like Grammarly before and that is probably why I love it so much. It works very well for what I need. Plus, it goes above and beyond. I don't need it all the time but it is great to use in any communication occasion. I love it

memoQ is better quality and cheaper. Previously, Trados had a monopoly on the market but fortunately there are other adequate options available now at a lower cost.

  • Trados is used by many clients, so it helps me to get more jobs.
  • Having one of the latest versions helps me a lot. I can, for example, import editable pdf documents and work on them within the Trados environment.
  • It also helps me with files which need to be returned in bilingual format in Word.
