Hello everybody,

do you know if it is possible to just buy SDLX, without Trados?
I would like to have SDLX, but I do not want to buy the whole package including Trados, because it is very expensive, and I already own a Wordfast license, which in my opinion is much better than Trados.

Thanks,
Katrin

It *was* a possibility even after the merger Jun 1, 2007

I'm not sure whether this is still an option.

Shortly after the merger, I asked an SDLX sales rep whether the Trados/SDLX suite was still available with a dongle instead of the soft license, since my main work machine was a standalone PC that never connects to the internet.

She told me that the dongle was still an option, but that I'd have to decide whether I wanted to buy just Trados or just SDLX, since the dongles were available only for one program or the other.

The best way to find out if this is still the case is to ask someone at SDL.

I asked, but got no answer yet Jun 1, 2007

Hello Steven,

Thank you very much for your response. I have sent an email to SDL a week ago, but did not get an answer yet. However, I will try again. Maybe my email got lost.

Katrin
