Dear Support/colleagues,

I've arrived at a point when I have to employ a new computer to help me with my work but I'm a bit weary of how best to transfer my SDL Trados Studio 2014 to the new one.

I have a one-machine licence and I have my account, licence number etc, but I'd like to know what are the steps to follow. I hope I don't have to de-install the program from the old machine, only de-activate it there. But before I activate the new installation on the new machine? Or can I not install the program at all until I de-install it on the old one? Before de-installation, do I have to deactivate the licence? To do de-activation, there's help on our accounts, but I'm afraid I lose the only workhorse I have if something goes amiss and I can't properly do everything. I'm not of the computer generation and if something can go wrong, it will go wrong when I touch it ...

Thank you for your help. Kind regards,

Peter Simon

I transferred Studio 2014 to a new computer last year and wrote about it here:

Thanks, Emma! Jul 21, 2015

I am also planning to install Studio on a new computer in the near future. Your advice is very relevant indeed, and excellent, as usual!

Thanks!
Much appreciated,

Sandra
