Hi,

I have a small Windows-network and would like to buy a Trados Studio 2009 Freelance Plus version. However, the sales person at SDL claims it's not possible to install a freelance version on a network even as small as mine. I need a professional licence. Is this really true??

Greatful for any input from current users.

Best regards

users? Sep 22, 2011

Seems like the question here is not if a network exists or not, but how many Trados applications you want to run concurrently. Apart from the technical aspect if Freelance will install on a server....

I am the only user for this Freelence licence, but the sales person tells me it's not possible to install a Freelance version in a Windows network environment, as it will enter demo mode......

Just wanted to add that the program will be installed on a PC, not on a server. The network we have is a Windows workgroup of 3 computers. But the Studio application will only be used on one PC.

I don't see why not Sep 22, 2011

If the installation will be on a local computer, it doesn't matter if the computer is part of a workgroup. The software will be available on the computer where it is installed.

With a Freelance Plus version you can install it in two computers (a desktop and a laptop, for example), and each copy of the software is only available in the computer where it is installed.

By the way, this is not only an assumption, it's actually my set-up, there's another two computers in my Windows workgroup (not including my laptop), and out of all three, only my computer has Studio (Freelance Plus).

Clarification Sep 23, 2011

Hi Fredrik,

I think this KB article should clear thinks up: http://kb.sdl.com/article.aspx?article=2671&p=1

In Summary:
Studio Freelance works on regular networks (workgroups), regardless of how many there are.
It doesn't run on Domain networks.

Cheers,
Luis
