I'm just starting out in the business and bought the starter version of Trados 2011 and downloaded it onto my laptop, though have yet to activate it. I was thinking of buying a desktop PC shortly though and using that as my main work computer - if I activate Trados on my laptop first would I be able to transfer it to my PC, or would I need to buy a whole new package?

Many thanks for any advice!

Hi Ben,

As with all versions of our software, you are free to move/transfer this to a new PC as and when needed. Simply deactivate the software- reinstall on the new PC and reactivate using the same activation code.

Here is an interesting link which also explains the differences between the Starter version and the full freelance version.

Kind regards
