Déjà Vu upgrade counter-offer

March 26th, 2008 | by Naomi de Moraes | No Comments

Yesterday, I mentioned SDL’s new upgrade policy. Atril (the company that develops DéjàVu) has also launched a new upgrade policy, perhaps a counter-attack?

A recent email from Atril states:

“If you are using another TM tool, switching to Déjà Vu X is now easier than ever. We offer you the fastest and most effective way to introduce Déjà Vu X into your translation team. We have listened to you and this is the result: 20% discount on Déjà Vu X!

“Offer valid only until April 30, 2008.”

See the announcement page for more details.

SDL (Trados and SDLX) Upgrade rules changing

March 25th, 2008 | by Naomi de Moraes | No Comments

I recently received the following email from SDL, which many of you may find interesting:

“From the 1st April 2008 our promotional pricing eligibility is changing for versions older than 3 years.

“If you are on versions Trados v6.5 or previous or SDLX 2004 and previous, we recommend you upgrade to SDL Trados 2007 now in order to retain discounted upgrade pricing for the software. From the 1st of April 2008 onwards, there will no longer be upgrade eligibility from these versions.”

See the SDL announcement page for complete details.

The previous policy was to allow users to upgrade even the oldest versions of SDLX or Trados, with upgrade price increasing with the age of the prior version. What do readers think of this?
