A very warm welcome to you all

Actually I am surprised when I opened the web site of Trados company

http://www.translationzone.com/product.asp?ID=116

I found in the upper left hand corner or the page the following
Upgrades start at just 95 Dolars
and
New license just 895 Dollars

What does that mean?
Does it mean that the ones who bought Trados before can pay 95 for SDL Trados 2006??!
Does it mean the ones who have not bought Trados before can pay 895 for DSL Trados 2006?

I post this question here because when I contact the comapany it takes lots of time to reply and sometimes the reply is not specific to the questions because i tried it in the past.

What does that mean?
Forgive me for my ignorance over this matter.

Yours
Mr. Imad

have you checked for lower prices May 23, 2006

In many countries there are authorized resellers of Trados, and their prices are sometimes really very low. See http://www.proz.com/topic/44287

For example the current price of SDL Trados 2006 Freelance in Turkey is TRY 795 (VAT included) = USD 530

http://www.set-soft.com/set-soft.com_non_ssl/urun_yazilim_sdlfree.asp



And SDL Trados 2006 Professional is TRY 2990 (VAT included) = USD 1993

Yes... May 23, 2006

You are correct, if you already have a Trados licence the price you pay is much lower than if you are a first time buyer. Click "upgrade" to give the exact price for upgrades from different versions of Trados. There is currently a special offer and upgrade prices start at $81.

English version of the site May 23, 2006

Hello Selcuk,

I opened the site you gave and it seems to me they don't have an English version, or I don't see it ?? Thanks for the help!

no English version May 23, 2006

Hello Sylvia,
Yes, you're right. This site has no English version. However, I have seen websites of some other authorized resellers prepared both in the native language and English.
There is a list of Trados authorized resellers.
http://www.trados.com/contact.asp under Select a Country...


Also look at http://www.translationfromto.com/technology-prices.html

In Bulgaria SDL Trados 2006 Freelance is € 363.00

Only in Bulgaria May 24, 2006

Hi there,

I checked pretty all of the authorized resellers, and I found that Bulgaria offers the cheapest Trados, at least to my knowledge. But: I wrote them, and unfortunately they are only authorized to sell Trados in the country, so I couldn't buy. Of course you can always ask someone to buy it there and then sell it to you or something like that...
