Hi,
I checked Trados homepage, but couldn't see the info for Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Plus.
Could anyone please explain what the difference between the two is?

Additional Activation Aug 12, 2013

As far as I know, the Plus version gives you a single license code that you can activate on two computers, such as a Desktop and a Laptop, whereas the non-Plus version gives you a single license code that can be activated only on one computer. If you are using (or plan on using) more then one computer, Plus is the clear choice. Otherwise you will have to transfer the license each time you switch computers.

Thanks, Shai!!! Aug 12, 2013

Oh, I see!
I just thought of it as a "content" difference..didn't know that it was about the license.
Thank you very much for your helpful reply!!!

AutoSuggest Aug 12, 2013

Hi Christine,

You also get the AutoSuggest option with the + version, meaning you can create your own AutoSuggest application, provided you got a TM with 25,000 translation units.

Cheers,

Bernard

Auto suggest Aug 12, 2013

I have a freelance plus license, and whilst it's true I can run Studio on two machines, I had to buy the auto suggest separately (€100).

Interesting... Aug 12, 2013

Bernard, I was wondering if you bought a package thinking that the Autosuggest is from the Plus version (but in fact, it was a package deal)...

I think what Denise said is right... Autosuggest is probably separate (Thanks Denise, for the verification).

Thanks again, all!

Group Buy Aug 12, 2013

Look at the current Group Buy and it's part of the deal and with Studio 2014, you should be able to reduce the number of TU's to 10,000 according to the latest information.

I think so once you're eligible for both, you should get a similar upgrade

Cheers,

Bernard

Group Buy Aug 12, 2013

Thanks Bernard, for the helpful info.
In fact, the current TGV is what prompted me to think about all these... I signed up for it and was wondering what the Plus meant..

The Autosuggest seems to come along whether I choose the Plus or not here...

Now my new question will be:
If you buy Plus for the previous version, will you automatically get Plus for the new version as well?
In other words, if I choose 2011 Plus for an additional license, will I get two lincenses for 2014 as well (when it is released)?

I kinda doubt it, but ask just in case...

Don't doubt! Aug 13, 2013

Hi Christine,

Whatever you purchase now is what you'll have when 2014 is released. So if you take the Freelance Plus now then this is what you'll have when 2014 comes out as well.

Regards

Paul
