Hi you all!


Last May 22, 2016 I bought the SDL Trados 2015 SR 2 Starter version, as I am starting my freelancing activities, but do not have the financial means nor time (still in a full-time day job) for buying the full freelance version just yet. After purchasing the programme, I received a final screen with an Order Confirmation Number (I have a screenshot of that), followed by my bank calling me in order to confirm the charge on my bank account by SDL Trados. So far, so good.

Now, I have 5 days left to activate my license. I dug into my mails, but apparently I never received any e-mail with an activation code.

Watching the tutorial videos about activating a license, I saw that this is also possible through my SDL account (in Products&Plans > Licenses, more precisely).

To my big surprise, it shows "No data - You have no licenses". When moving over to Account > Order history, to my even bigger surprise it says: "No data - You have no completed orders".

Yet, my credit card was charged and I did receive an end-of-process screen with an Order Confirmation Code.

Anyone has any experience with this or knows what to do? Or is activation of a license not required for this stripped-down version of Trados 2015? It is rather important to me to solve this problem, since I have already kicked off with my freelance activities and assignments are starting to come in. Any help on this would be welcome!icon_smile.gif


Thanks a lot in advance!

Your Studio 2015 Starter purchase Jun 17, 2016

Hi Arne,

I believe you post here in Proz and our SDL community may have crossed each other.
Just for clarity, the order (order nr 406057/22nd May) that I have been able to find on your account has not yet been paid.
If you have paid for a different order, please provide the 6 digit order number so that I can track this down for you.

Thanks a lot! How to proceed now? Jun 17, 2016

Hi Steve!

Thanks for your reply. Apparentely something went wrong at bank level than (although they gave me a confirmation call). Still, the weird thing is that the Pending Order section of my account doesn't show anything either.

Do you wreckon I should just to to the website and buy it again, or is there any other way of 'continuing' the purchase I did a month ago?


You can always write me in PM if you want.


Best regards,

Arne

Your SDL order Jun 20, 2016

Hi Arne,

The order is available in your SDL account- just go to ORDERS- Outstanding and you will see the order.
You can then process payment online.
