This article explains how the Product Activation Wizard can be used to activate your Single User License for SDL Trados Studio 2015 for the first time using the Online Activation Function. The Product Activation Wizard is part of your installation and will appear when the product is first started.
*Note : This process is also available for Passolo 2015 and later
When you first install Trados Studio 2015 and the Product Activation Wizard appears, you automatically receive a 30 day trial. This trial disappears once your license has been activated. The trial license will only appear if you have never had SDL Trados Studio 2015 before.
This opens the Product Activation Wizard. Your activation code is sent in a confirmation email when you purchase Studio. If you do not have the email, you can access your license through your SDL Account on http://www.sdl.com, or by clicking the SDL Account link in the dialog:
This brings you to the login screen of your SDL Account:
Sign in and go to Products & Plans > Licenses.
Select your version of SDL Trados Studio 2015. You will see all of the available codes. Next to each license code there is additional information:
Number of activations
How many licenses are in use
If the license has an expiry date
NOTE: If you have an SDL Trados Studio 2015 Freelance Plus license, you can activate it twice: one initial activation and one additional activation on another machine.
Copy the activation code and switch back to the Product Activation Wizard:
Paste the copied activation code into the Activation Code field and click Activate:
