Hello all,

Do you have any idea if it's legal/illegal to "lease" a Trados licence?

Say, I own a Trados licence, and a translator needs a Trados licence for a one-week $500 project, so he pays me $50 to use my licence for one week. Does anyone know if that would that be a breach of my purchase contract with Trados?

Thanks in advance!

Alain

Why not use the free trial instead? Sep 9, 2011

I'd be surprised if SDL - or any software provider, for that matter - would allow you to sublicense their software... But why bother, since SDL offers a 30-day free trial of Studio 2009, which your translator can use?

If it's just a matter of using a CAT tool for little or no cost, there are plenty or free/trial ones to choose from.

The starter edition would enable you to do this project with minimal investment and ability to cancel after the month.

Good luck

There is a limitation: the translation memory accepts only 500 translation units.
