The upgrade process is the same for all users owning a Single or Network license(s).
If you already have Studio 2015/2017 and you upgrade to Studio 2019, you need to:
- Deactivate your current SDL Trados Studio 2015/2017 license(s). To do this, go to your SDL Trados Studio application. Click on Help > Product Activation > Deactivate
- Upgrade your license from your SDL Account
• Login to your SDL Account and go to the Licenses section.
• On the left hand side you should see “Upgrades” available, marked with a yellow arrow icon. Click on the icon and you will be able to see the Upgrades page.
• Click on the Upgrade button to process the license upgrade. If you have several licenses, please note that you need to choose the number of user licenses that you wish to upgrade.
• A new licensing code will be generated.
- Activate your Studio 2019. Copy the new licensing code and paste it in the Studio 2019 application to activate it.
Note: SDL Trados Studio 2017 Freelance/Professional Single license owners only
Customers upgrading from Studio 2017 with a Single license will be able to use their new Studio 2019 license to run both Studio 2019 and Studio 2017 at the same time, as the license for Studio 2019 is a 'compound license'. For this to work, you will need to update Studio 2017 with the most recent CU.
Note: SDL Trados Studio Freelance Edition users only
Customers upgrading their SDL Trados Studio Freelance Edition to Studio 2019 Freelance who don’t deactivate their license can continue to run the Studio 2015 application alongside Studio 2019. Your previous version (2015) will be marked as inactive in your SDL Account and will be automatically removed if, for any reason, the license is deactivated.
