I need Trados, but I only have $225. So, let me know if you want to sale your old version (with dongle).

Try Wordfast Apr 29, 2003

Download Wordfast (http://www.champollion.net) and try it. It is Trados compatible and will only cost you $170.

Hello Denis,

I like Wordfast a lot (which I cant say from Trados), but unfortunately it is not that compatible like we all want it to be...for example I have a big client who sends me .ttx files and therefore I have to use Trados....I can not even use SDLX icon_frown.gif

I agree with Denis Apr 29, 2003

Wordfast can do anything that the earlier versions of Trados can do. If you really need the features of more recent Trados versions, you will probably have to pay more than $225 for a corresponding version.

Consider also that the price of Trados has actually fallen considerably over the years, so someone who bought an older version may well have paid a lot more than the current price. This may make them feel less inclined to sell. For example, I have Trados 1.1, with dongle and the original English manuals, and I would consider selling it, since I no longer use it. But: I paid the equivalent of $2,000 for it, in 1997. What should I ask for it?

MetaTexis is an alternative Apr 29, 2003

Hi Doug,

if you need a program which is able to import and export TRADOS documents you can also use MetaTexis (for more information see CAT tool center).

You get MetaTexis *for free* if you become a Platinum member until April 30th.
