Trados has the Flexnet system which is from the same house as Safecast, if not the same product if you are thinking of a license manager.

At least the floating license with a license file is partially working (it is tied to the ethernet card which Wine can access). It is recognizing the demo but running 30 days in trial mode because of a problem with the license server, which Wine can handle.

For the versions locked to the hardware, I think there may be some difficulties
