Hi everyone,
I have just managed to destroy my Trados USB dongle in a freak accident!!
Just as well, as I still have been using version 5.5 and it is probably time for an upgrade.
The translationzone site does not give any information, if such an upgrade is possible and if so, how much it would cost - assuming they would let me upgrade from a (no longer usable) dongle version to a softkey version.

What really concerns me though is, whether I would be able to use my existing 5.5 TM without problems in 7.0?

Any information/advice/experiences would be greatly appreciated.

I am using Windows/Office xp.

Cheers and thanks,
Petra

Hi Petra,

Shouldn't be a problem, assuming you can still provide your license number.

Details are shown on TranslationZone - click on Upgrade from pre-TRADOS 6 FL.

Yes. It's recommended to export your version 5.x TM, and to re-create it under T7, though.

Best regards,
Ralf
