Hi all!

I am working in a shared office space with other freelance professionals, among which a fellow translator.

We both run SDLTrados 2007 Freelance version, each with a different license, and use the ADSL (Wifi) Internet connection of the office.

Apparently, the other translator has recently had problems using Trados, which often runs on a demo mode only. I had a problem once with SDLX, which was running on a demo mode while I was working on a large project.

Does this conflict come from the fact we use the same ADSL connection? If so, is there any way we can work around it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Véronique

This is the default Trados comportment.
The SDL guys want to force you to buy the Professional version.

Not exactly.
The problem is you're both in the same LAN and both computers see each other.
The second Freelance you open will always run in demo mode.

Make 'em invisible.
I.e. you should configure accordingly your network/firewalls.
It was discussed here several times.

PS.
It's one of the reasons why small translation offices near me are switching to other CAT tools, mainly to MemoQ (3 cases during the last year).

Cheers
