i think my subject is clear enough, currently i'm using SDL Trados 2007 freelance, this version only able to install five languages in 1 time.
the question is, when i need to run others languages, does it have any short-cut to re-install or modify the target languages instead of remove and install the whole Trados program again.. Thank you for answering...

No, you don't Nov 28, 2008

If you want to use Trados FL, you will have to uninstall and reinstall it.
If you need to work on small projects in the extra languages, the answer might be the demo version of Wordfast (fully operational up to 500 translation units in the TM). If that is not sufficient, you have three options:
1.) use Omega-T, which is free
2.) buy another tool (e.g., Wordfast, Metatexis, MemoQ, etc.) that does not ruin you
3.) keep uninstalling and reinstalling Trados - but this might become very frustrating after some time
4.) pay for the full version of Trados.

Thank you, Attila Dec 1, 2008

Thank you for your suggestion, i have another question here..
while i installing Trados 2007 FL, when come to the language selection, is that a must that i have to add the "English" as my target languages? if i added English, that's mean i only have 4 more options to choose. is that alright if i just add 5 others languages excluded English?

Many thanks
Best Regards,
