I'm looking to purchase Trados 7 tonight before their sale ends but have a few questions (it's my first time buying Trados).
Hope my answer isn't too late.
1) What is the difference between TRADOS 7 Freelance and TRADOS MultiTerm 7 Extract Freelance? The the latter included the first? If not, is it worth the $900 extra?
MultiTerm Extract is a separate software package that is used for term extraction: you can use it to extract terminology from existing translations, TMs or reference files.
2) I'm getting a new computer in the next week. If I download the program tonight (as it's the only way to order it) on my old computer, can I easily transfer the program to my new computer?
Yes. First of all, the package you download is an installation file, which you can use to install the software several times - in fact, there is no restriction on the number of times you can install the software. The license file, which you will need to generate in order to run Trados (without it, the software will run in demo mode only) is a different issue, as this is generated by reference to a specific computer. However, it's possible to return it once and re-generate it without contacting Trados, so changing your PC is not a problem. (You can change it several times, however, you would need to contact Trados Support to re-generate the license file several times over. I've done it myself.)
