Looking for Trados 6.5

Does anyone want to sell an old version of Trados, with license? I have a full-time job in an office but would like to do a little extra work at home. It would not justify buying Trados 7.0 new, but I would like to be able to use Trados.

Sadly, in recent years, Trados (and now SDLX) have been reusing licenses. This means that I cannot sell my 6.5 even if I don't use it anymore, because it has the same license as my 7.5. But if you really want it, you can check on ebay. It's up there pretty often - most of the time, people who didn't like it (learning curve) and people who never got around to get their freelance career going sell brand new copies with license.

However, if you are really only looking to have a CAT tool so you can accept work, why don't you try Wordfast (you can get a demo that, I believe, works for a month, enough to learn to use it and see if you want to invest in it). It is very compatible with the big players, and is much, much cheaper.

Why not check out the forums discussing Wordfast and see if this could be a good alternative for you? I know many translators switched to Wordfast after having tried Trados and SDLX.

It's worth looking into.

Good luck!
