SDL Trados Studio provides a wealth of innovative features that help users translate content faster, improve translation quality, simplify project creation and make light work of review.
Browse through the tabs below to discover more about the features that make Studio the most popular CAT tool in the world.
This is the technology at the heart of SDL Trados Studio. It records and stores your translated content, which is then made available for reuse - helping you complete translation projects faster. The more you add to your Translation Memory, the faster you can translate subsequent translations, as the ever-growing database provides 'matches' found in your TM. Using translation memories not only increases your productivity, but also drives consistency and quality within your translated content.
If you haven’t used a translation memory before, you can easily create a new one in Studio. You can also use multiple translation memories in Studio, combining your own work with any existing TMs that have been supplied by your client.
If you have previously translated documents and are now using SDL Trados Studio to translate, you can use the alignment tool to match your source and target language files, meaning you can build up your translation memory database.
You can create powerful translation memories from any file type using the integrated alignment technology.
SDL Language Cloud machine translation (MT) engine, which you can access from within Studio. It provides computer-generated translation suggestions as you translate — providing instant access to generic and industry-specific MT engines in over 100 language pairs. MT is particularly useful in speeding up translation when you do not receive a suggestion from your translation memory.
When you purchase Studio, you automatically receive a free subscription that provides you with 400,000 MT characters per month!
Our industry research told us that translation quality is the most important factor in any project and that the top reason for translation rework is inconsistent use of terminology!
Having a tool that ensures you are using accurate and consistent terminology helps you create high quality translations and increases productivity by reducing translation rework. SDL MultiTerm is the most sophisticated terminology solution in the industry and is included when you purchase SDL Trados Studio. SDL MultiTerm can be used as a standalone application or as part of SDL Trados Studio.
Keeping your Translation Memories (TMs) in the best possible condition assures high quality translations. In Studio's 'TM maintenance' view, you can examine up to 1000 Translation Units (TUs) per page and quickly navigate to a specific area in your TM. This makes it easy to do any required edits and keep your most prized assets up-to-date with the latest, most accurate translations.
You can customize the quality assurance (QA) settings for each language pair you work with to increase your flexibility and control over QA checks.
SDL AppStore is the translation industry’s only app store and where you can find a range of free add-ons.
With over 250 apps to choose from, there's a variety of different apps to customize and extend the functionality of your SDL software. Downloading an app is easy — just click on the download button, sign into your SDL Account and follow the installer instructions.
Open access to our Software Development Kit (SDK) can be found on the Developer Hub. The SDK allows developers to build bespoke apps, or integrations to other software, either for internal use or to share with others on the SDL AppStore.
