Hello,

I'm new to Trados and was wondering whether there was any point getting both the old and the new versions?

Thanks a lot!

Claire.

Do you mean that you already have Trados 2007? Mar 18, 2013

If so then I think the upgrade to 2011 is worth it.

I don't think you can buy 2007 anymore.

Both! Mar 18, 2013

There was an offer in the "Translators Group Buy" to buy either Studio 2011 or Studio 2007 and Studio 2011.
I was surprised to have the option and now that it's time to pay, I wonder what the point would be to buy both (it's about $100 extra).

A few reasons that may or may not be relevant Mar 18, 2013

Hi Claire,

If you already have Trados 2007 and not Trados 2007 Suite then here's a few things you might want to consider that could influence your decision:

  1. you do a lot of work with legacy filetypes (TTX, Bilingual Doc/RTF or SDLX)
  2. you want to connect directly to Trados 2007 based server solutions

So the first reason would ensure you have the right tools to be able to create these filetypes for your customer in the most appropriate way to avoid issues during the translation process. The second is a must have if you are required to work online with Trados 2007 Servers or SDL TeamWorks for example.

If none of these things apply, or you only ever get provided with legacy bilingual files already prepared, then I think you can probably do without Trados 2007 Suite.

That would be my view in the absence of any practitioners with different viewpoints.

Regards

Paul
