After my recent problems with laptops and PCs dying on me, my boyfriend has kindly offered to let me use his PC as a backup in case all my other backups go wrong again.

The problem is, his laptop doesn't have a serial port for the dongle. I've seen people mention a USB dongle here, but can't find anything on the Trados website.

Does anyone know more about USB dongles - how much they cost, where you get them etc?

Contact the Trados office you bought the software from Jul 16, 2003

Hi Joanne,
USB dongles are available directly from Trados; they do charge a fee (can't remember what it was, I'm afraid) for exchanging an operative parallel dongle into USB.

Best regards, Ralf

100 Euro Jul 16, 2003

Hi there,

I switched my dongle to a USB recently - it cost 100 Euro plus VAT.

All the best
