Some time ago I was able to use the same license both on PC and on notebook when not at home.
Now I am going for a short holiday and was trying to do the same, but seems like I am not allowed any more.

Could anyone please confirm if there is a way to install Trados on another computer without returning license?
And if not, is the process of returning the license still simple and trouble-free or it has also been changed? I don't have much time for solving problems if they are possible with returning license before new installation.

Thank you in advance.

Return your license Jul 17, 2009

Hello Natalya,

I presume you mean that you cannot activate your license on your notebook parallely. Return your license (activated on your desktop) and then you'll be able to activate it on your notebook.

Thanks, Giuliana,

I was asking just because using the same license on two computers (not simultaneously) was possible earlier. So you mean SDL rules on this have changed?

Hello Natalya,

to use SDLTrados Studion 2009 both on desktop, and notebook you must have a licence for SDLTrados Studion 2009 Plus, that allows using it simultaniously both on desktop and computer. Otherwise you need to return licence to SDL, and then receive it on notebook.

Clarification Jul 18, 2009

To use Trados...2009 I first have to buy it. I use SDL Trados 2007, and earlier I had no problems with using it on 2 computers with 1 license. So the information I need, is what exactly changed since I last time installed the same version on notebook?

I am aware of "return license" option, I need someone to confirm that they changed the rules even for those who bought their previous products and were using them for a long time.

Different policy: 2007 is not like 2006 Jul 18, 2009

Hi Natalya,

as said, one instance only can be run. 2007 works with an activation code, which can be activated only on one machine at a time. If it were that the activation code could be used simultaneously on two PCs, there wouldn't be any need to return it, would it be?
