Dear All,

I was contacted today by an agency asking me to provide them with some information, like rates, language pairs, etc. They asked me too if I use Trados, and if yes to give Trados License Number.
I have two questions here:
1) Where do I find Trados License Number? and
2) Should I or shouldn't I give it to them?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,
Tamara

Don't give the license number to them Aug 29, 2007

I wouldn't... It's none of their business. Or at least ask what they need it for first.

Do not supply this information Aug 29, 2007

Just because an agency asks for something doesn't mean we have to provide it.

Maybe... Aug 29, 2007

they mean "version number"? (as in 6.5, 7.0...) Otherwise I don't see the point.

Thank you Aug 29, 2007

Many thanks to all of you.

I didn't feel comfortable giving them the license number. I am not sure if they really mean the version, but this is how they asked about it.

Kindest regards,
tamara

OK, they changed it. Aug 29, 2007

It appears they really meant the version number, not the license number. They re-sent the request with the correction.

Thank you all.
