SDL Trados Studio is a computer assisted translation program. It consists of tools for creating, editing, and reviewing translations in a professional environment. The application makes use of translation technology that is capable of completing projects 40% faster than other programs. The program features accelerated translations with the AutoSuggest and SDL PerfectMatch tools. AutoSuggest provides suggestions for translations as the user types the text, while SDL PerfectMatch uses previously translated files to ensure consistency and accuracy for translations.
Aside from translations, SDL Trados Studio can also be used as a project management application. It can be used for managing translation deadlines and files for translating projects. In addition, the program features an automated project preparation tool that comes with a wizard. This can boost the creation of projects as the program stores repetitive tasks. The reporting function of the program creates reports for projects with important information, such as word count and translation analysis. This helps users keep track of the progress of projects.
Other features of the SDL Trados Studio include the following:
• Track changes for reviewing translation projects
• Enhanced QA checker
• Integrated or standalone terminology management
• Context matching
• Supports industry standards (XLIFF, TBX, and TMX)
