This is slightly off-topic, it only has to do with SDL's nomenclature of its software versions. As you might know, there is a 'Freelancer' and a 'Professional' version of SDL Trados. I know what the different versions are, but what about seemingly calling freelancers non-professionals? Isn't the freelancer often the TRUE professional? Is this a remnant of a curious mix-up of Trados and SDLX lingo, perhaps?
Just a thought.

Shouldn't it be "corporate" vs. "freelancer"? Mar 5, 2007

I agree. Some software suites are labeled "corporate" vs. "personal", or "office" vs. "home".

We are, indeed, professional users, we just happen to work as freelancers
