Hello from Japan,

I just purchased [SDL Trados 2011 Freelance (SDL Trados 2007 Suite excluded)] last month(on Feb.21, 2011) as a new customer because I had used Trados 2006.

Now I realized I should have purchased [SDL Trados 2007 Suite] because some of my
clients require it.

Is there any way for me to purchase [SDL Trados 2007 Suite] separately?


Can SDL exchange my [SDL Trados 2011 Freelance (SDL Trados 2007 Suite excluded)]
with [SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance + Trados 2007]?


Do I need to purchase [SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance + Trados 2007]
as a new customer AGAIN?

Please advise.

Thank you in advance!

If you go to the SDL store page http://www.translationzone.com/en/translator-shop/shop_main.asp there is a live chat.
I expect you will be able to add Trados 2007 to what you have just purchased by paying the difference, but the live chat salesperson is the person you need to talk to.

By the way, Trados 2007 really isn't necessary if you have Studio 2011. When you say your clients require it, what exactly are they asking for?
A bilingual doc? If they can presegment the original file and send it to you, then you can translate it in Studio 2011.
A TTX file? You can create this with the TTX-IT app that is installed with Studio 2011 and then translate it in Studio.
A TMX memory? You can upgrade TMX (and TMW) in Studio to make use of your clients' TMs and export your SDLTMs into TMX.

Hope that helps,

Thank you! Mar 15, 2012

Thank you for the advice Emma!

I am contacting a SDL support now and I have been offered a refund.

I bought it with TGB(in Feb) and now there is another TGB going on.

Hopefully I can get Trados 2007 by paying the difference.
