Upgrading from 2015 to 2019

As the title indicates, I want to upgrade from 2015 to 2019 and have several questions.

  • Do I download new software or is the change integrated in my 2015 program?
  • If the change is not integrated into 2015, can I still keep using 2015?
  • Are 2015 memories usable in 2019?
  • Can projects created in 2015 be opened and used in 2019?

Thanks in advance for helping me answer these questions.

Best regards,

Anna Fitzgerald

  • Hello  ,

    Thank you for your interest in upgrading.

    Do I download new software or is the change integrated in my 2015 program?

    When you decide to upgrade your software, you are actually purchasing a brand-new full version. Your current version is in itself NOT upgraded and you will need to download and install the new version. Just to be clear- the difference between an 'upgraded license' and a 'new license' is purely price (upgrades being far cheaper than purchasing new).

    To make the transition from one version to the next as smooth as possible, we allow you (freelancers only) to keep your old license for a limited time. This article explains the process is more detail-

    Are 2015 memories usable in 2019?

    Yes they are- all Studio memories are in SDLTM format- You may also want to benefit from the new features (available since the 2017 release) such as upLIFT FuzzyMatch repair - for more information- https://www.sdltrados.com/products/trados-studio/freelance/whats-new.html

    Can projects created in 2015 be opened and used in 2019?

    Yes you can. However, if you are still working on a project in Studio 2015- I would always suggest finishing the current project in 2015 and then slowly migrating to Studio 2019 for all new projects that you receive. I would not advocate switching versions mid-project.
