Following your feedback from the 2015 SDL Roadshow Series, 2 out of 3 attendees who completed our feedback survey wanted more product training and demonstrations from our events. When we started planning our 2016 Spring events we decided to respond to this and deliver exactly what you wanted, and I think you will be very happy with the results.
Reading through your feedback, it also became very apparent you were looking for a more tailored approach, customized for you in the role of professional translator or as a member of a language service provider or business localization team. Examples of the feedback on how to improve our events included “It would be better to group together people who are looking for the same thing from the event so that more time can be spent on what really matters to them" and “maybe you could have focused sections targeted to freelancers and other sections to companies."
Good news, our brand new event series, the SDL Seminar Series (available at European locations only), has been created with this feedback in mind and is completely free to attend.
For freelance translators, we will be providing a series of training seminars, at eight different venues across Europe, which will help you to:
- Improve your skills and increase your translation speed by extending your knowledge of SDL Trados Studio 2015
- Enhance the quality of your translations by helping you to master the quality assurance features of Studio 2015
- Develop your use of SDL MultiTerm to aid terminology accuracy and consistency
- Embrace SDL OpenExchange and start using applications to extend and customize your Studio environment

LSP and Corporate Localization Teams
For LSPs and Corporations, we will be hosting eight SDL industry seminars. We will present an exclusive early preview of the first wave of results from an extensive research study on technology adoption in the localization industry. We will explore the findings and reveal how the industry views:
- Changing working practices and their impact on productivity
- How and why technology is supporting the drive for quality
- Trends towards interoperability and integration in the search for increased ROI
If you are an LSP, you are invited to reserve your seat here.

We hope this new format will help deliver content that is more suited to your individual needs and expectations and look forward to your feedback following the events.
