Does anyone have the slightest idea of how to work with a remote TM?? Can I do it with Trados 5.5 Freelance edition?

TM stored on a remote server Jan 31, 2004

Hi Maria,
a "remote TM" is stored on a remote server, usually within the same LAN, but IIRC it's now also possible to connect via the Internet. The translation process works the same as with a local TM - it's "just" the connection that's different.

By definition, Freelance versions are single-user licenses and hence not network-enabled. I'm not sure if T5.5 already had that functionality, but you would need at least the LSP license.

HTH, Ralf

You can open server-based TM in 6.5 FL Jan 31, 2004

Translation memory support in the Freelance version of Translator’s Workbench is as follows:

Full support for file-based translation memories, provided that files are opened by only one user at a time. The Freelance application does not support multi-user access to file-based translation memories.

Full support for server-based translation memories using the Internet (TM Anywhere) connection type to access TM Server. The Freelance application does not support the intranet connection type.

Thanks, Wojtek... Jan 31, 2004

...I hadn't thought of web-only connections.

Best regards, Ralf
