The Big Sell March 26, 2012Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Tools.
I thought it might be interesting to share the advertising mails I received for translation tools in the space of one week…
E-mail advertising 30% off a workgroup license for DejaVu (unsubscribe option was in French – thank heavens for Google Translate)
E-mail telling me Wordfast Pro 3.0 is coming soon
E-mail offering 20% off SDL Trados Studio 2011 in honor of their 20th anniversary
E-mail advertising a full license and upgrade to DejaVu on ProZ, an e-mail advertising 40% off memoQ translator pro, and an e-mail offering an upgrade for Translation Office 3000
This morning I was offered a free webinar on how to use TO3000 (tips and tricks). Ah the joys of unsolicited advertisements. I’ve deleted every single one of these e-mails, but I think I’ve decided to just consequently unsubscribe from each one I receive in the future. I’m perfectly happy working with MemoQ (and to a lesser degree Fluency). If I absolutely need Trados for a job I still have a licensed version on my laptop. As for Translation Office 3000… well, I gave up working with that program years ago because I found it to be too clunky and time-consuming. Maybe I should sign up for the free webinar after all…
