Hi,
I am a Trados 6.5 Freelance user. It's installed in a computer with Windows XP Pro and MS Office 2003. I bought a new computer with Windows Vista Home Premium and MS Office 2007.

How can I transfer the current Trados to the new computer and upgrade to Trados 7 at the same time?

Trados 6.5 needs a dongle, but the new computer doesn't have a connector for the dongle.

What can I do?

Thanks,
Juana

Hi Juana Nov 15, 2007

Trados 7 doesn't use a dongle.

When you have finished installing the program, it gives you these options:
>
30 When the activation utility has been installed the SDL Product activation wizard is
displayed.
31 Choose an option and click Next. The options available are:
C Go to the SDL website and purchase a software license for SDL Trados 2007.
C Activate a license you have already purchased.
C Work with the software free of charge for 30 days in trial mode.
>

Obviously, you'll need an internet connection to complete the process.

You can find more information in the SDL Trados Installation Guide, a PDF document that is included in the download.

You can upgrade to Trados 7 through your Translation Zone account:

Thanks so much, Giles.

It sure was helpful. I am sure now I can upgrade to Trados 7. For some reason I thought the Trados 6.5 needed to be installed in the new machine before I could do the upgrade.

Your answer makes lots of sense.

Thanks again icon_smile.gif

Trados 7 or 7.5 Nov 16, 2007

Search the forum for the compatibility of Word 2007 and Trados 7.0, it might be a issue.

Update from Trados 6.5 to Trados 7 not available any more Nov 16, 2007

Hi,

I contacted SDL Trados a couple of weeks ago, as I needed to update from 6.5 to 7 (I had a job to do for a customer who owns Trados 7, while I have Trados 6.5).
As I couldn't find this option in the Translationzone, I contacted Trados support and this is what they told me:

"We currently don't sell Trados 7, this version has been replaced by SDL TRADOS 2007. In this situation both you and your customer would have to upgrade to the latest version to be able to work together".

This is the link where you can see the prices for upgrading from Trados 6.5 to the latest version.

Good luck!
