I bought the Trados Freelance 6.5 some time ago but has no luck in using it yet. I have installed as I should, but it seems to me to be a Demo version.
In the tutorial guide it says to use the MultiTermiX as multiterm version, while in my WB there is only the MultiTerm 5(Trados 5). Does it matter? I do not understand how to proceed.
Where do I find the license key?
Thank you for any useful information.
Annika

The license key should have been delivered with Trados, it's a software dongle that is inserted into a USB port. Once you've inserted the dongle into one of your computer's USB ports, Trados should lose its demo version character.

As for MultiTerm IX, please make sure that you not only install Trados 6.5, but also the MultiTerm (separate CD-ROM, also part of the Trados package). Once you've installed it, MultiTerm IX should be available.

Good luck

Ingo

Had similar problems... Feb 2, 2006

I installed my 7.1 after downloading it from the website (I do not have the software cd's), however I did not download the license, so, it ran in demo mode. As soon as I downloaded the license I was able to register and it has performed without problems since.:)

License key vs. dongle Feb 2, 2006

To use Trados, you need either a license key (softkey) or dongle. License key is a small file that you have to download from the web to your hard disk and then tell Trados where to find it (specify the folder with the downloaded file). Dongle is a small physical device that has to be plugged into USB port.

The latest version of Trados is not available with dongle anymore, but I think Trados 6.5 was available with either dongle or license file, so it depends on what version you have.

I don't know why this happened and I don't think it has anything to do with the license file, because Trados never tries to download the file itself. Maybe you were trying to connect to a TM (Translation Memory) Server?
