Me and my partner were about to buy two licences for trados 2009 FL, but then we have noticed on the contract that, it is impossible to use two FL license on the same network (do not know why).
Then I have contacted my local trados seller and he said that by buying a single trados 2009 FL PLUS licence, we can use trados, with one licence, on two different computer, on the same network. But i am doubtful about this.

Anyone knowing smtng about this subject?

Thanks already

It all depends on what you call a network Jun 29, 2010

This is an old flaw from Trados since a number of versions.

In fact the number of licences you purchased does not matter, if one program is opened on a machine of the Windows workgroup, then the next program will launch in demo mode.

The easiest solution I found is to put the machines in separate workgroups and share the server volumes by IP address instead of names:
where x.y.z.t is the IP address of you file server on the local network (probably something looking like

If the IP configuration of your network is correct, the machines will access the Internet through the same gateway without any change, simply rename the workgroup from the Properties of My Computer.

There are also cracks and firewall configurations that will allow you to use what you have paid, but these are more complicated and the publisher could consider them illegal, albeit I am curious of the output of a claim against a legitimate customer having paid full price for a product that he cannot use.

KB Article as this may help a little;

The restrictions are different with the 2009 version of the software and you should have no problems running as many copies of the software as you have licenses for as long as you are able to comply with the way license types are restricted now.

Hopefully this will explain but if you have any questions post them here and we can try to answer them.
