Dear colleagues,

I hope this is not a stupid question, but I was wondering how to transfer, or rather "copy" Trados 7, which I have installed on my desk top computer, to my laptop.
I have wireless and would like to be able to work from both computers with Trados/ tag editor on the same project. I should say though, that my laptop's operation system is Vista and I heard there are some problems installing Trados on that.
Is it actually possible to have it on two computers, without buying it twice?

Kind regards,

Depends on your license Feb 19, 2010

The license I bought allows simultaneous activation on up to two computers. I assume yours is the same.

Just use the same installer that you used on the original computer.
