Hi all
can anyone help please with some questions on the October SDL promotion.
1. The promotion stays open until 50 units are reserved, but does the promo run beyond 25/10 until 50 are taken, or is the promo then cancelled and relaunched later? Could this promo run unfilled potentially for months?
2. In the last say two years, how many promos of 50 Trados bundles have sold out within their allotted month?
3. Is it possible to pay by Sterling (GBP) by bank transfer?
4. What payment alternatives are there?

Hope someone can help with these questions

Hi Daniel Oct 21, 2012

First of all, I am moving the thread to technical support forum (and removing the duplicate).

You may want to take a look at the site FAQ concerning TGB:

In case you wish to join the current group purchase of Trados, please go to this page:
and click the [Join this group of buyers] link.

As you can see, this sale closes Oct 25, 2011, or when 50 are reserved (in case 50 copies are reserved sooner than that).

In case you would need any help, please submit a support request at

Hi Daniel (thanks Natalie for your reply),

In general the TGB closes when either the end date is reached, or the group target is reached. That said, if the end date is reached and the target not met, TGB's can remain open - but we typically allow those that have signed up to buy at the discount when the end date is reached and the target is close.

TGB's typically do not stay open for months - if the target has not been met and the end date reached a TGB may stay open a while longer, but usually not very long.

This particular TGB does not list GBP as a currency, but you will be able to buy in GBP using wire transfer - no problem. I would recommend signing up for the TGB which will secure your place and ensure you receive the payment emails. The payment email will grant you access to SDL's payment portal and there you can choose currency = GBP. This is based on your residence and form of payment. That is, you cannot live in the EU with an EU credit card and select USD for currency.

Payment is accepted using wire, CC, and a few other forms like PayPal - but I believe PayPal will still require that your account be tied in to a bank card or checking account.

Thanks for choosing TGB for your software needs.
