Hi experts,

I have Trados Studio Freelance Plus which means I can install it on two computers and I have done so on two PCs.

I occasionally have to go out of station and in that case I carry my laptop. Therefore, I downloaded and installed the trial version which is valid for one month. Its validity is going to expire now. Is it possible to keep this trial version alive by deactivating the Trados from one PC and then using that license for activating the trial version on laptop and then return the license on laptop and then after activating the Trados on the PC on which the license was returned?

Since I rarely go outstation, I find it very expensive to purchase a new license for this purpose. Could you please guide me in this respect?

Thanks and regards,

That's precisely how Trados' licensing scheme is designed to work. The origin of the installation you are activating (expired trial, formerly activated and later deactivated, etc.) shouldn't matter as long as you've duly returned the licence.
