Many members received the newsletter article concerning the TRADOS group buy only to find it was sold out before they could get there. Some are just waking up now and had no chance to participate. This was not intentional; we did not expect the 50 units to be claimed so quickly (5 hours). We intend to arrange an additional group buying round at similar terms during the early bird period as soon as TRADOS agrees to it. If you would like to be notified, be sure to subscribe to notifications via the TGB page.

For now, direct buys are still available. Thanks for shopping via TGB.

Group buy re-opened, accepting 15 new participants Apr 29, 2005

The TRADOS group buy has re-opened because a number of participants who committed to making the group purchase backed out after the sale had ended. We are now accepting 15 more participants for this sale. Buy TRADOS 6.5 with a free upgrade to 7.0, plus 6 months of platinum membership, for only 716.00 usd / 604.00 eur. See the translator group buying page for more information:

Please note that a fee has been introduced for participants who commit to making a group purchase but revoke that commitment after the sale has closed. Please do not sign up to participate in this group buy unless you honestly intend to make this purchase.

Best regards,

next step in the group buy? May 1, 2005

Hello, Jason. I signed my name in the group buy last Friday(4/29) and am still waiting for further instruction like when and where to pay. Since the group buy notice window in the home page is gone, I assume we have already met the 50 participants, right? So any ideas when we can get the software?
