Need help on Trados 5.5
Thread poster: Ivan Martinez
Is there anybody that can help me on how to get Trados 5.5 or other CAT program? I live in Havana, Cuba, and have nor way to get one of this programs. Do you can make a copy an send it to me?
There is not a way of using the copy of this program. First you should have a special dongle to use it. (Trados sells it together with the CD). The only way to use it is downloading the demo from trados website (it takes about 6-8 hours)or buying one for 615$. But I have it and decided to sell it for 550$. If you are interested in pls. send me an e-mail. Hope this helps.

there are some means to download and get Trados work, but these are illegal...
I would recommend Wordfast to you (I have Trados 5.5 and prefer to use Wordfast). It has almost all Trados features (and even some that Trados doesn\'t offer at all, e.g. translation of Excel files). Once, Wordfast was free but now you have to register and pay for the license. BUT... there are different license fees depending on whether you are an agency or a freelancer or depending on the country you live in (this would be 50 USD instead of 170 USD). MAC users at the moment will get their license still for free.
Nevertheless, if someone can\'t afford the discounted fee for valuable reasons given, I\'m convinced he or she will be able to get their license for free writing to Mr. Champollion.
For a start, you could use the free trial version which is fully functional.
The Wordfast link is:
P.S: If you like, I can download the Wordfast trial version for you (approx. 0,6 MB) and send it to your e-mail account. Feel free to contact me.
