A few weeks ago, I was asked by a potential client if I had the “Professional” flavour of SDL Trados Studio. I declined, mentioning that I was going to update from Studio Freelance 2011 to Studio Freelance 2014 until the end of September (done!). SDL currently has one of its rebate “spasms”, so I decided that ~200 euros were okay to invest after having used Studio 2011 since, wait for it, … 2011! As far as I can tell, the “Professional” variant only adds the ability to run on several machines in one network domain, to share TMs over said network, and – big deal – to create SDL Trados Project Packages (sdlppx). But is that worth a twentyfold increase in my upgrade investment?
