Trados = pay for it Omega T , open source, kinda less options but I've used it for translations at the uni. Also got a student key for trados but it's too complicated for what I need. I have to learn to use it for the exams though... There must be some older versions of Trados cracked to download.....

Re: Words that sound like what they mean

My two cents

balloon
shaggy

flash
whiplash

the three last are somewhat onomatopeic I guess, and the first two, maybe the shape of the letters does it too, or the way you put your mouth

I always use the bouba and kiki example when talking about this
