I used Dropbox for that Dec 9, 2020

I translated a big project along with 2 my team mates. I created 3 identical TMs for each translator (for example, TM_sk for me, TM_jd for John Doe, and TM_mj for Mary Jane).

I read an article about it, but I cannot find it now...

Ah, here you are Dec 9, 2020

However, this method is obviously not as convenient as GroupShare. If it was, the SDL solutions would not cost so much.

Thank you Stepan. This is exactly the type of solution I was hoping for! I think I'll be able to live with the limitations for the time being. I had not thought of creating 3 TMs, this will be very helpful, thank you!
