Registration now closed.

This workshop includes ample time for practice and Q&A to allow participants to practice their new skills at their own pace and ask questions so that they are ready to start using Trados Studio efficiently right away.

•    Learn about some of the more advanced Trados Studio topics, such as translation memory fields, translation memory management, file type settings, verification tools, auto-propagation, and compatibility issues.
•    Learn how to convert glossaries from Excel format to MultiTerm termbases for use with Trados Studio.

•    Those who are already using Trados Studio 2011 but would like to know more about its intermediate/advanced features.
•    Those who take Saturday’s Trados Studio 2011 Workshop for Beginners and would like to learn more.
•    Note that this workshop is meant for those who already have some previous experience in using Trados Studio. If you don’t have any previous experience or your experience is very limited, you should also take the Trados Studio 2011 Workshop for Beginners (11/10/2012).

•    Since this workshop includes a hands-on component, you need a laptop computer to get the full benefit of the course. However, you will likely find this workshop useful even if you come without a computer. Note that NCTA will NOT provide computers.
•    You also need to have Trados Studio 2011 already installed and functioning before the workshop. Trados Studio 2011 trial version (valid for 30 days) is sufficient for the workshop, and can be downloaded from
•    Optional: Feel free to bring your own translation memories, termbases and glossaries for upgrading/converting them and any other files you would like to work with using Trados Studio.

NOTE: This workshop does NOT cover earlier versions of Trados. Because the new Trados Studio 2011 is very different, this workshop will not help you with the use of the earlier versions. If you are interested in workshops or training for the earlier versions (Trados 2007 or older), please contact the instructor.
