Hello everyone!

I'm a user of Trados 2014. Some weeks ago I got an unofficial license of Trados Studio 2014 (I know it's my fault, and I'm sorry ) to test the program but I remembered that I had one official license from my subscription to ProZ. When I was trying to use my official SDL Trados Studio 2014 Starter license it was erased from my account. Appart from that I formatted my computer to try to buy a new license from the trial version but it still says I have a a BigBird License and I can't deactivate this (I don't have the activation code). So finally I decided to buy an official SDL Trados Studio 2014 Starter License (I paid for it), I've got it waiting in my SDL account but I'm afraid to use it because it may be erased again... May I have some help, please? Sorry for the inconvenience, I know I made a mistake, but I'm trying to fix it the good way.

Error retrieving license Mar 2, 2015

Thank you, Steven.

I've tried that before but at first I couldn't see the activation code via that procedure, so I've been trying all the possible stuff (formatting included) and now when I open Trados it says:

"There has been an error while trying to retrieve license
Licenses under End User License Agreement
Non-authorized use of this program may carry legal sanctions (...)"

And I can't deactivate it, neither online nor offline.

Support Case Required Mar 2, 2015

Hi Diego,

You will need to raise a technical support case for this.

If you do not have a PSMA contract, you can raise one by going to our Knowledge Base, you can use this link http://kb.sdl.com/#tab:SFTab:crumb:0 then select the solution finder menu/tab at the top of the page. Work through the options in the dropdown menus to locate your query, then an automated form will appeal on the right hand side of the page, fill this in and submit.

Kind Regards,

Tried that :S Mar 2, 2015

Thanks again Steven!

A while ago I already sent a query via support tab on My SDL Account, and I've looked already on the Knowledge Base... I'm running out of options and it's frustrating... I made a mistake, I know, but fixing it is being very exasperating :'(
