Trados Studio 2017 for Beginners 

This workshop includes ample time for hands-on 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 how to use glossaries and machine translation with Trados Studio.

•Discover how to make the most of this software and put it to good use.

•…in other words: To get you up and translating with Trados Studio, and to feel good about it!

Workshop attendees must bring their own laptop for the training with an installed demo or licensed version of SDL Trados Studio. If you are having problems installing the software, please contact Tuomas Kostiainen at well before the training day.


Note about versions: Even though this is primarily a Trados Studio 2017 workshop, most of the presented information also applies to the earlier Studio versions. However, since a free Studio 2017 trial version is available for all first-time Studio 2017 users from, it's recommended to have this latest version installed.


Workshop participants who subsequently purchase the Studio 2017 software license can enjoy a 30% discount, courtesy of SDL and valid until mid October. If interested, please contact for the discount code.
