Thank you very much for the recommendation, Piotr, it was very helpful.
I was certain SDL/Trados would have some hitch to their customers' freedom to do what they wish with the product they purchase. I can understand not copying it or distributing it on a network but preventing free and legitimate commerce by re-selling legacy versions and transferring the legally acquired licence in its entirety is a bit underhanded, in my opinion.
Like most businesses today: grab the money and think of the consumer later, if at all, but do have the fine print ready.
Thanks again. You were very helpful.
Although I enjoy working with SDLX part of the SDL Trados suite, their support leaves much to be desired now. Usually they "can't reproduce" a problem. I solved one problem myself after a few weeks.
On the other hand the guy that does the development of Heartsome software is very helpful. He is able to make a patch even within a few hours of reporting a bug.
Another thing is whether you like the interface, but I learned not to be fussy about GUIs.
