I received a promotional offer to buy Studio 2014 by 31-Jan-2014 for EUR 545:

They say I'd save EUR 150, so I assume the starting price would be EUR 695.

However, if I click the BUY NOW link, I get this:

They do repeat "now only €545 (save €150!)", but the actual price displayed is EUR 646, down from a normal price of EUR 825 (a saving of EUR 179).

Should the creative SDL marketing folks retake Math 101, or am I missing something?

Doesn't add up Jan 28, 2014

I'm seeing the same thing on their website too, I'm going to have a word with their online advisor and see what they think of the math!

One price, two different currencies Jan 28, 2014

It's in euros in the advert and in dollars at the checkout, you can convert into your currency once you've placed Trados into your basket.

Thanks, I hadn't noticed the default currency was the dollar!

Changes in pricing Jan 28, 2014

What also confused me are the changes made by SDL:

1) the base currency now appears to be USD (previously, it was EUR)
2) the "normal" price of Studio has been decreased: it used to be EUR 845, it is now EUR 695

The price of their PSMA was also significantly lowered: it used to be about EUR 200, it is now EUR 139:

What has increased, however, is the price difference between Freelance and Freelance Plus. When the normal price of Freelance was EUR 845, Freelance Plus cost EUR 875 (difference: EUR 30). Now that Freelance costs EUR 695, Freelance Plus is EUR 820 (difference: EUR 125).

Hello
I am from SDL.
There is a difference between currencies. The system will display different currency based on language and location.
However the text is just saying Euro.

We did lower the starting price for Studio in Euro to €695. PSMA is calculated on the price and therefore it is now lower too.
