I have found an advert for extremely cheap Trados 7.1 for $35, but I am suspicious that there must be a catch. The advert says that the product is OEM software. Can anyone tell me if this is worth purchasing? And should one buy Multiterm desktop with this, or is it usuially included? I am new to TM so am not sure what are the best products and what the difference is between SDLX and Trados.

Also is Wordfast as good, or does it have disadvantages to Trados?

Many thanks.

Illegal software Oct 31, 2007

Hi Neil,

I have found an advert for extremely cheap Trados 7.1 for $35, but I am suspicious that there must be a catch.

This is almost undoubtedly illegal ('cracked') software.

The advert says that the product is OEM software.

AFAIK there are no computer systems on offer with any CAT tools preinstalled.

Best regards,
Ralf
