Dear colleagues,

I use TagEditor and the Workbench, but Automated Translation (Beta) greys out and I have not been able to get that feature talking.
What is the secret of this feature?
And, does is it really of much avail when working?
Many thanks for your follow-up.

Warm regards from sunny Mexico, as always.

Not working here either, maybe only valid for 12 months Jul 14, 2011


After I've had Trados for several years, I've only just thought I'd try out the then new automated translated feature. I can activate it, get a connection to their server but it's not working and the next time I look at it, it says that this feature is not available.
I found this information here (site only in Geman):
It says that the automated translation feature is available to SDL Trados 2007 Suite users free of charge for a period of 12 months. I'm not sure if this applies to your and my situation but if so, this could be the reason. Haven't found any information as to whether or not you can buy or use it in another way after those 12 months. Still quite mysterious but this could be it. The latest Trados versions include this feature automatically, I think. Would still be nice having it in the Workbench/Tag Editor.

All the best
