I was looking into the finished Group Buy for SDL Trados (http://www.proz.com/tgb/232) and the ad says that even though the Group Buy is finished there are still direct sale available and then lists the direct sale price as $645. But there are no links that work to buy the software from this page.

I then go to the Proz.com store (http://www.proz.com/sdltrados) which lists the price as $895. Naturally, the $645 price tag sounds a lot better to me but how do I go about getting Trados for that price?

Help is GREATLY appreciated!

Good morning,

yep the TGB is closed, but the ad clearly says "only a fraction more" with ProZ.com membership included and the "fraction more" is clearly stated, but then at the indicated link the price is different.

I'd contact site staff here at ProZ.com and SDL support as wellicon_wink.gif If a price is stated and there is no "offer valid until", one can think that it's still on

Prices have been updated May 6, 2009

Good morning,

I have just updated the prices from the TGB closing instructions- this is something the system shows automatically when a TGB is closed. Sorry for the inconvenience, of course you can buy SDL Trados directly here: http://www.proz.com/sdltrados Now the prices have been updated and are the correct ones.

Sorry about this again and thanks for pointing it out.

Kind regards,
Florencia
