Hi there, I'm currently working for a translation company and we've just received a huge translation project. I would like to use only one TM for the whole translation process, and since the project was assigned for more than one person, I was wondering if it is possible to use ONE TM between 2 or more people simultaneously.

I'll be looking forward to your answers.

Thanks,

Francisco Cifuentes

Possible on the local LAN, but limited Aug 31, 2011

I have no exact figures, just from what I was told by the SDL Support:
you can open and access a TM by more than one user in the SDL Trados 2007 Professional version, but from their experience this will work for a maximum of 3 users.
In your case you need a TM Server, which will do exacty what you want.

Yes, you can. Aug 31, 2011

Hello,

The answer is yes, you can. We have used this in previous projects and, although I cannot guarantee you 100% that 4 of us worked with the same TM, I am sure that 3 of us did.

Hope this helps.

It's possible but I think it's an economic nonsense.

E.g., if you use DVX, you have almost five user licenses for one Studio Professional.
I.e. 5 x 660 € against 2999 €, AFAIR
No advocacy (i.e. I don't want to start a DVX/Trados flamewar) but you can find a lot of damn cheaper (and sometimes better) solutions which may do the job you need.

Cheers
