SDL MultiTerm Extract (previously a paid product) is now free. Will SDL MultiTerm Desktop be next?

Consider this scenario. Trados Live offers an excellent terminology resource, including termbase templates, and the popular and successful Glossary Converter can handle very well the terminology needs for the Trados Studio CAT tool users, plus applications like Excelling MultiTerm, an interface between Microsoft Excel and SDL MultiTerm (within Trados Studio), enables users to skip SDL MultiTerm Desktop.

So let me rephrase my question and ask a second one. Will SDL MultiTerm Desktop become another free appstore solution? What is the future of SDL MultiTerm Desktop? Thanks.

    Really? I know you find MultiTerm falls short of what it could achieve for you but I think it's an amazing piece of kit and I love using it. I use no further plug-ins for it beyond Glossary Converter. 

    Its interaction with Studio continues working beautifully in the background so long as I open MultiTerm Desktop occasionally to check for updates, and I never have a problem that I can't resolve.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    All the best,
