At present I use SDL Trados Studio Freelance Plus 2019 and I have over the years build various large Translation Memories and glossaries, which are complemented by subject matter specific dictionaries for the fields I work in. I have, of course, also applied my skill to all kinds of technical and medical material including low-tech subjects like consumer electronics and high-tech scientific/medical subjects such as procedures for detection and measuring exposure to plutonium, as well as documentation for gas detectors for the offshore oil & gas industry.

I have given several courses in the use of SDL Trados and I have also written Beginner's Guide to Trados Studio Freelance. It is free and it has been visited by more than 110,000 people from all over the world interested in learning how to use SDL Trados.
