SDL Trados Studio 2021 will work on Windows 7*, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. We recommend Windows 10.
As a minimum requirement, we recommend an Intel or compatible CPU-based computer with 8 GB RAM and a screen resolution of 1024x768.
For optimum performance, we recommend a 64-bit operating system, 16 GB RAM, an SSD drive and a recent Intel or compatible CPU. Full support for 4K hi-resolution screens is planned and will be implemented incrementally in future releases. You can find more information on how to deal with display issues in this Knowledge Base (KB) article or by running an application from the SDL AppStore which implements a fix, mentioned in the KB article. SDL Trados Studio 2021 uses .Net Framework 4.8
*Please Note: Microsoft has recently stopped support for Windows 7 and as a result, we are no longer testing Studio on Windows 7. Studio continues to work on Windows 7, so you can still install and use it with this Windows version, however to work with GroupShare and Language Cloud projects on Windows 7, make sure to first enable TLS 1.2 as default secure protocol. Language Cloud and GroupShare 2017 SR1 and later only accept TLS 1.2 connections. This is to ensure the highest data security when sharing projects on SDL servers.
