Dear all,

I've been trying to purchase an extra activation for my Trados Studio 2011 Freelance (I don't have the plus version) but according to SDL I must upgrade to 2015 Freelance Plus to secure two activations. This seems a bitty unfair as it's expensive and whilst I wouldn't rule out upgrading to 2015 Freelance Plus at some point, I can't do it immediately.

Anyone else with a similar issue?

SDL said that I could install 2011 on two computers (PC and laptop) and switch between them by deactivating the licence on one and activating it on another but not sure how feasible this is. Does anyone have experience of this? I tend to use both devices a lot.

Thanks

Switching lisence between two computers have been no problem in the past Aug 12, 2015

I can't guarantee that you won't have any problems with deactivating the lisence on one computer and activating it on the other, as I don't use 2011 any longer, but it has been no problem in the past. I have two machines at home, and have done just that.

Of course, if you have to do it a lot, it can be somewhat frustrating, since you have to go to your page on the SDL server all the time, but except for that I don't see any problem.

There's also the shared network issue... Aug 12, 2015

Thanks for your helpful reply Roy.

The more I look into this, the more I think that this might be the better option (if its feasible) as if I'm not mistaken I wouldn't even be able to run Trados on both machines together on the same home network anyway. Which makes me wonder what the added value of two activations is ...
