Just found this on heise.de. I downloaded the software and registered. The offer is valid until August 22, 2005.

Nero AG, is distributing free licenses for there new TM software ACCROSS.

http://www.across.net/de/fdb_intro.aspx

I hope this is not considered advertising, I do not have any commercial relationship with the company. It is a possibility to get a free software license and I think it is a topic worth mentining here.


Regards
Siegfried

How exactly? Aug 18, 2005

Hi Siegfried!

I've jsut visited the across webpage, and I've downloaded the demo version, but I found nothing about free licenses...

How did you do it?

Thanks in advance!

Natalia

Registering for Across Aug 18, 2005

The free offer is for freelancers to get the "personal edition", which is also the "client edition" (linking up to a "server edition" which the agency/client would need to buy at a hefty price).

To get the freebie licence, you have to register as a freelancer who has the client edition, so that agencies can contact you for jobs. Ahead wants to earn its crust by selling the server edition to agencies, and one of the selling points will be to claim that there is a massive installed base of freelancers equipped with Across.
That is where you and I come in. We get the freebie edition by registering, and thereafter we become part of Ahead's advertising pitch.

The option to register comes up during the installation process (or failing that, when you run the program). At least it did for me (I installed from a CD which I received as a member of the German BDÜ), but it should work for the downloaded version, too.

Whether anyone will actually work with the program is another question. Most freelances will probably install and register for the same reason as me - curiosity. And like me, most probably already work with a CAT program and will be slow to learn another one (and will take a lot of convincing that it is actually useful).
