Hi there. I'm wondering about getting Trados 06 FL, but I have 1 question: I'd like to install the license in my desktop and in my laptop. After reading through the FAQ's, I guess this should work out fine, but I'm not 100% sure. When buying a license u are entitled to download 2 softkey license files to use on up to 2 PC. Could the two computers be considered a network? Could it be that in one PC only the demo version would function? Thanks everyone for your help!
Best
Bárbara

Yes, if you have them indeed connected to the same network as in a WLAN. If you're just using the two computers independently from each other, there's no problem.

Also, if your computers are connected via the same network, it only means that you cannot run Trados on both machines at the very same time; only one instance of the prgram can be open at any time.

If it's just you using the program, there shouldn't be any problem. However, if you and a colleague would want to work on both computers at the same time, that wouldn't work.

Check the forums:

"SDL Trados 2006 Freelance is designed to work in a single user environment and thus only one instance can run on a network at any one time. SDL Trados 2006 Professional is required in order to share translation memories on internal networks (LAN) and provide multiple users the ability to simultaneously work on a network and have access to the same translation memories."
