SDL Trados Studio – The Manual

Where is the manual?” was a question which was posed early when the new version of Trados came in 2009. There will be none from SDL Trados; instead there is this one, for version 2009 as well as version 2011. It was written because it is needed — it’s that simple.

Facts: Each manual comes in two versions: A4 and A5; both are in English, with screen shots in color. Comprehensive indexes. Clickable cross references and Internet links. Format: PDF, for own printout (suitable also for Letter size paper).

Updates: The manual will be updated twice a year; every buyer will be notified for free download. The changes will be marked (unobtrusively).

Some opinions

”This manual is the kind of book I had searched for months. In the week I have had it, I have learnt how to use dozens of Studio functions that were totally unkown for me. Now I feel that I am finally taking the most out of Studio 2011. – - – I know for sure that I would have never discovered many of the functions without this manual.” – Alejandro Moreno-Ramos, author of MOX. Illustrated Guide to Freelance Translation

”Since transitioning to Studio 2011 earlier this year I have been looking for something like this manual. It has already helped me with clear descriptions and helpful hints to save time and speed up the learning curve! Well written with the translator in mind.” – Frieda Ruppaner-Lind

”I found it particularly helpful that Mats does not confine his manual to the main Trados application, but he points his readers to a good number of plug-ins from SDL’s Open­Exchange program as well as other third-party products that can be useful in combination with Trados. – - – Overall he is very positive and encouraging and manages to communicate both to a novice as well as a more advanced user. For instance, I learned some details of joining and splitting files and different fuzziness settings that I was not aware of.” – Jost Zetzsche, editor of The Tool Box Newsletter

”Trados Studio 2011 is my main working tool, and I always wished there was a book that contained every little detail on every functionality the tool offered. With this excellent, easy-to read PDF manual, my wish has finally come true. – - – Even if you think that you already know it all, it is definitely worth buying the manual and reading it. You’ll find out that Studio can do much more to help you become a better, more efficient translator.” – Pavel Janousek

The A5 version is intended for Booklet printout. If your printing software has this function, it should produce a nice book with appropriate margins, for binding in smaller format. (The A4 format will give the same result but of course with somewhat smaller typesize and fewer pages.)
