Hi everyone! Hope you can help me with this.

I'm thinking about getting SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Plus, which provides activation for 2 PCs.
I wonder if that means that 2 different persons can use this product (so as to share the product cost), or if it is for personal use only (1 person with 2 computers).

Thks!

Freelance Plus gives you a Single User License Code that can be activated on two different machines and used by the same person.
So, two different people can't share it.

The 2 licenses do not work simultaneously? Oct 24, 2012

Hi everyone,
I was asking myself the same question.
The official description for the Plus version says: "SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Plus provides the convenience of an extra activation to allow you to work on 2 PCs simultaneously".
That's (intentionally?) not so clear: is it possible to work with Studio 2011 from 2 PCs simultaneously or not? That is to say, can 2 translators work on 2 different computers simultaneously using the same Plus license?
With Trados 2007 it was not, so what's new with this "Plus" version?
I wish SDL was more transparent on this point, as a corporate license would be far more expensive for a couple of translators working under the same roof.
Thanks for raising this issue, Raquel, let's see if someone can help us!

I wish you all a nice dayicon_smile.gif

clarification Oct 24, 2012

you can have Studio 2011 installed and fully operative on two computers with the Freelance licence.
it is up to you if you want to share it with someone.
you will have only one licence, but two people can share the same username and password to get the SP updates.
so, it can be used by two people without problems.

kind regards.

hi Diegol, no not at all. it won't affect the other compueter. the only important thing is should remember to deactivate the Studio licence before uninstalling it.

Has anything changed over time regarding this?

I'm wondering whether SDL actually cares and verifies if the two activations are used by the same person or not? I can't think of any possible way to verify such a thing, but maybe I'm not familiar with the CIA ways of doing things yet.
