Trados Studio subscription benefits

We have introduced subscription as a new way to purchase Trados Studio licenses.

Although there is no difference between Subscription and Perpetual licences other than the licensing model, there are benefits to each model.

To help you make an informed decision, this page summarizes the benefits of purchasing a license through an annual subscription.


Lower initial cost

When purchasing an annual subscription to Trados Studio, the initial cost will be lower than the cost of a perpetual license.
However, access to the software is for the duration of your subscription and you will not own the software outright.
