About a week ago I received an offer for DNS9 STANDARD for 60 dols. Now I saw there is a group buy for DNS9 PREFERRED for 150 euros. The company website has little to say about the differences in general, and nothing about our business in particular. From a translator's point of view, which is preferable, or, bluntly put, will the 50$ version work fine for me or are there any features in the preferred version that are absolutely indispensable?

the group buy offer is for the English version May 7, 2007

I think it is of little use for those who translate only FROM English into language XXX, as they need to dictate in the XXX language.

good point May 7, 2007

Still, for the German SW the question remains: On Amazon the Preferred version is 165 euros vs. 85 euros for the Standard version, with no information on the differences between the two... Any ideas on that?

Thank you, Claudia

You are right... May 7, 2007

this seems nearly to be a secret of state:-).

After long researches I did myself to find out the differences, some time ago I found this comparison (in German):

There is nevertheless at least one more point that is not listed there: DNS Standard cannot be upgraded any more (from version 9, before this was possible).

Good luck!

Question answered! May 7, 2007

Thank you Mats and Christel,
Now I am quite sure that the standard version would be just fine for my ends. I have yet another question to ask, but will post a new thread for this.
