Well, to recap, seems nothing more than an update which one must pay for...


However, Trados crashes can be so frustrating and time-consuming, that any update that reduces the pain will be well worth it over time.

If this is your main work tool and if the new version is more stable, even before discussing additional features, using the newest version is the way to go.

My 2 cents,
Sandra

I feel that's a rather large "if", but in any case how can we, as end users, quantify those claims in advance? Ultimately we end up just swapping anecdotes. "Mine's fine." "Mine's a disaster". "Oh, you must have done something wrong then". "Er, don't think so, I actually found 2015 better" - and so on.

Personally, I haven't noticed recent releases being more reliable. Indeed, the first iteration of 2019 caused a problem of some kind with packages, I forget exactly what, which led to me revert to 2017 until 2019 SP1 was delivered. 2019 seems equivalent to 2017 for my work in terms of stability, but it certainly hasn't generated any improvements in productivity over 2017 that I can quantify. Currently my installation is OK, and I am loath to mess around with it unless 2021 offers verifiable, clear-cut advantages to freelancers.

Marketing promises are just words, and what matters is how works under real-world conditions. I am watching with mild interest, but in no hurry to upgrade.

Regards,
Dan

My experience Jul 17

I'm currently using the 2017 version, but out of curiosity some time ago I installed the demo of the 2019. Unfortunately, for the project I was translating at that time (a readable PDF document), the 2019 version didn't go beyond the project preparation stage, at the end informing me of some error. The 2017 version took some time to process the document, but allowed me to open it and translate. So... a different experience, really.

A bone for early birds Jul 20

Allow me summarize the relevant parts of what Jost wrote in his subscription newsletter:
1.6 MOST IMPORTANTLY: the online version will not be free. Initially, all users of the desktop version will have 1 year's free access to the online version, but after that, the online version will be an optional paid extra.


Buyers who made use of the early bird offer have been given an extra 3 months of online usage (so, 15 months instead of 12). But it would have been nicer if the fact that this is not included in the full price was made clearer when the product was initially made available for sale.

So, they're highlighting the online version as the main reason to upgrade your desktop app but next year they'll ask you to renew the online app by paying for it separately? This does not make any sense.


Well there had to be a catch somewhere, it was weird to me they will offer for free what everybody else charge subscription for (cloud access), so yea, there it is I guess.

As I always ask ... Aug 12

... will it be x64? Any major upgrade of the large TM/TB handling mechanisms?

Or all cosmetics once again?

Does Cloud functionality works in the beta trial?
