Everyone looks forward to a Trados Studio 2021 service release; these updates not only bring improvements in performance and stability, but also a range of new features and enhancements that are sure to make your experience working in Trados Studio that much easier.
With the latest Trados Studio 2021 service release now just around the corner, I thought I would give you a sneak peek into what exciting new functionality you should expect to see – from enhanced cloud compatibility and improved character handling to new file filters and APIs, we have something that will pique everyone’s interest.
As always, when you first launch a new product, customer feedback is essential. From the day we released Trados Live, the new cloud companion for Trados Studio 2021, we have paid close attention to what you, our users, are saying (whether good or bad!) and have worked hard to implement changes to improve your experience in line with this. In this release of Trados Studio, I am pleased to announce that we have again taken your feedback on board and are introducing some highly sought-after functionality that will make transitioning to the cloud from Trados Studio a much smoother and more enjoyable experience.
- Ability to save local projects to the cloud
Have you ever created a local project in Trados Studio and then later wished you had created it in the cloud, so you could share it with your team or work on it from a different device? Or, have you ever received a Studio project package from a client and been frustrated that you couldn’t open and work with it in your new cloud environment? Well, thanks to the new functionality being released in SR2 you will never find yourself in this situation again! All users will be able to save their local projects to the cloud through an easy-to-use wizard in Trados Studio.
- Migrate file-based translation memories to the cloud
While it is already possible to migrate your translation memories to the cloud through manual processes, there was a lot we could do to make this process more seamless for users. In SR2, users will be presented with a wizard that will facilitate batch upload of your file-based translation memories to the cloud. From this point you will then be able to continue using your new cloud-based translation memories on both cloud and file-based projects as part of our existing support for cloud translation engines.
- Improved compatibility when working with cloud projects in Trados Studio
Since we released Trados Live, we have seen a growing number of users starting to explore the new cloud-based ways of working in Trados Studio. With so many people now opting to work with cloud projects in their desktop application, it is essential the core Trados Live functionality is replicated in Trados Studio as much as possible so that users can transition between the two environments effortlessly. This release of Trados Studio will now be able to support multi-factor authentication (MFA), the new Translation Quality Assessment functionality in Language Cloud Translation Management, and will offer refined support for customized workflows and pricing models.
