Trados 6.5 dongle

dongleFor 2 years, work­ing in Local­iza­tion, I had to scram­ble around for a Tra­dos don­gle when­ev­er I had to do some analy­sis or Trans­la­tion Mem­o­ry main­te­nance. Though I work for a major local­iza­tion ven­dor, with glob­al offices and almost 2000 employ­ees, we still had to share don­gles… expen­sive lit­tle buggers.

Today, how­ev­er, I final­ly received my own. I was so accus­tomed to the old Par­al­lel-port ver­sion, that I was excit­ed to get my hands on the small­er USB one.

Only prob­lem is, now I can’t use the excuse “I don’t have a don­gle“, when my boss asks why I’m not working.

  • Ok, not being a part of the savvy com­put­er gad­get world, this don­gle looks like a dil­do with which to did­dle. And shar­ing them? Wow! I think I might say “I don’t have a don­gle” at work every now and then just to throw peo­ple off…

  • that is so total­ly nasty, jill. I would expect that kind of com­ment from Pres­ley, but cer­tain­ly not you!


  • Ulti­mate Pow­er Dongles!

    In my day, we had par­al­lel don­gles only, and that’s the way we liked it. Well, no one liked it… but I liked it when the com­pa­ny’s in-house trans­la­tion mem­o­ry soft­ware went open source and did­n’t need a don­gle any more… for like a week…and then projects start­ed requir­ing Tra­dos. And then I ran scream­ing out the door.

  • Wow, that’s one nice look­ing don­gle (and I mean it.. I’ve seen the “reg­u­lar” dongles!)
