Hi folks,

you may have seen the latest TGB offer for Trados 6.5. Freelance on Proz (so-called "fire sale").

When I registered to purchase this stuff (advertised for USD 605 plus taxes), I saw the following:

"Product: TRADOS 6.5 Freelance $605 (w/ Multiterm 2003 and 6 months platinum membership)
Quantity: 1
Shipping charge: 0.00 $/ˆ
I was notified by:
Total: 120 ˆ (~136 USD)".

Now I am in doubt what the "120" in excess of the sales price would mean.

Does it mean I have to pay 605 sales price plus 120 for whatever kind of "value-added service" or so? The more the offer is promising "no shipping charge" as well.

Thanks for any suggestions

A mistake! Sep 22, 2003

The price is $605 (or 605 euros), plus tax depending on your area, payable to TRADOS.

You get: TRADOS 6.5 (better Excel and Powerpoint support), MultiTerm 2003, 6 months of platinum membership (added at the end of your current period, if you are now a member), and free shipping. The purchase has to be made by Friday, in order for TRADOS to ship by Tuesday, which is the end of their fiscal quarter and the reason for the unique "fire sale".

No additional charges apply, unless your country adds some tariff on imports. This should be nothing, or small.

The sale is via TGB:

Group Buying Offer Sep 23, 2003

And is there going to be a group buying offer for the "New Trados" that is coming out in November? If yes, what price? I have never participated in any of the group bying through Proz as I usually have the "stuff" by the time the group bying is posted. This time I am interested in finding out if and when we will see this new version in the group bying and at what price.

T6.5 is the new version Sep 23, 2003

Hi Blangsted,
The current offer on TGB is for Trados 6.5 Freelance which, according to information on TranslationZone, is the latest version to be released in November.

The offer on TranslationZone includes a short-term delivery of T6FL, with T6.5 scheduled to arrive in November - Henry, can you confirm that the TGB offer has the same features?

Best regards, Ralf
