Ever wondered why many software products jump from version three to version five? This is also typical with Trados; they jumped from Trados 3 to Trados 5. Well, very simple, in Chinese four means death. So imagine one's product sounding like "Trados death"!

Palm used T5 instead of T4 because the four in Chinese means death.
