Hello,

I am currently working for SDL in Germany and will be staying in Australia from mid-November 2016 to mid-April 2017.

During my stay in Australia last year, I could not login to SDL TMS and did not have access to the SDL FTP servers.

I think there might be some kind of geo-blocking that prevents access to SDL TMS/FTP from Australia.

(I am travelling a lot and never had any SDL access problems from other countries, including Indonesia, French Polynesia, Costa Rica, etc.)

Are there any (freelance) translators working for SDL from Australia who have experienced similar issues?
Any suggestions for a workaround?

Thanks!

Hi Guillaume,

Thank you for your reply. I have already contacted the vendor management at SDL but unfortunately they couldn't help me with that problem. This is why I posted in the proz.com forum, hoping to reach freelance translators or SDL employees who expirienced similar problems while working from abroad.

Kind regards,
Walter
