I am currently using the starter edition of Studio 2014 but am considering upgrading. Having worked with the starter edition for over a year I am aware of its TM limitations - to be honest its main purpose is to enable me to receive packages from agencies - the ability to set up TMs is limited to one per language pair and 5000 TUs, and I can't run my own TM whilst using a project package with a TM.

That having been said, these limitations aren't quite enough to persuade me to fork out the money for the freelance edition. However, being able to work with terminology more effectively would.

So is multiterm useful, in addition to the the ability to create termbases within Trados? I notice the Trados website is exalting increased multiterm integration into Studio 2014, but does it work, or is it too clumsy?

Grateful for any tips!
