I read that Google translator will only be integrated into Trados Studio 2011 in the future and looked for more information about MT alternatives, but I wasn't able to find it.

I believe it will be matter of general interest to know if T2011 will have the possibility to integrate other free automatic translators, like other CATs already do (MS bing translator, apertium, etc.).
Another question is whether people who has a valid license of Trados 2009 will be able to have a patch that allows them to connect to these free alternative MT tools or will they be forced to migrate to T2011, if they want to have MT available. Thanks for enlightening us.

SDL always reaching into my pocket Oct 20, 2011

The integrated Google Translate feature in Studio 2009 has been working more and more sporadically and slowly lately so I asked SDL what was happening. Google is dropping the free service on December 1 and replacing it with a paid service - $20 per million characters of text. That's not too bad. What is too bad is that SDL is ONLY adding an interface to the paid GT in Studio 2011, which is ONLY available as a paid upgrade or "free" to those who pay a couple hundred Euros a year for a PSMA. Once SDL has you, they never stop finding ways to make you pay...
