Hi there,

I have recently started to look into getting myself a Translation tool to help me with my translation job.

At the moment I am working part time, mainly to small projects of no more than 10k, and I thought that the SDL starter pack seems a much cheaper alternative to the full package.

Also, the work flow I have at the moment does not leave me with much "cash to splash", that's why I started looking into this option.

I would like to know if any of you as ever used it, or heard of it, and can recommend it.

Is it really helpful, or should I wait a bit longer and invest in the whole package?

Thanks a lot to anyone who will answer.

I would advise you www.freetm.com for the beginning. It's free.
If you want to get used to SDL Software, then you can use the trial mode (I think it's 30 days free) and then decide upon using the starter pack, but it doesn't have all the features. You can compare the SDL Packs on their website to have an idea about what will you receive for the price.
