I have Studio 2014, freelance plus version. I think I can activate the licence on 2 computers but can I work on both of them - will all my projects be available on both computers? Can I work on one project on one computer but have another project up and running on the 2nd computer?

Not automatically. But, you can create it twice, one for each computer (Studio won't realise that they are the same project), with separate source and SDLXLIFF files and share your TM on the cloud (e.g. DropBox) or elsewhere. You'll still have to update your SDLXLIFF file with the TM every time you switch computers.

Another option is to set up a single project with everything on DropBox. I've had problems with DropBox synchronising and Studio not finding the files, but it should work OK.

Can I work on one project on one computer but have another project up and running on the 2nd computer?


Yes, you're running two separate instances of Studio so you can work on completely different projects on each computer.

Yes, you can Sep 24, 2014

But you will need to build identical paths to your project files on both computers, saving them, for example, on Dropbox.
I have the following path on my both computers: C:\Users\Natalia\Dropbox\Busines\Clients....
You will also have to save all your TMs on Dropbox building identical paths to them as well.
Works without glitch.

Bittorrent Sync Sep 24, 2014

Another alternative to dropbox which does not need external servers is Bittorrent sync. Just designate one folder for files that need to be updated, copy them there and the program will sync them whenever they are changed. Free, without bandwidth or storage limits. Available for Win, Mac, Linux, Android, IOS, Windows phone, BSD.

Project Package Translation in SDL Trados Studio Starter
SDL Trados Studio Starter allows you to work with users using the full versions of SDL Trados Studio by enabling you to open project packages. Project packages contain the project files and all of the resources you need to translate or review files. When you open a project package, a project is automatically created from the package. You can then review or translate the files and create return packages to send back your completed work.

Project Package: HERE

This would be a good idea if the OP had the professional, not the freelance version.
The "open package" process you describe above works for Starter/Freelance/Professional, but the "create package" feature is only available in the professional version.
