Service Release 2
Service Release 1

Thumbs up for emoji support

You’ll be 😀 with this new feature! Save time and ensure source and target text align, as Studio 2021 and Trados Live will now fully preserve emojis when you're translating. Emojis will show as placeholder tags in Studio 2021, and as the actual emoji character in the Trados Live Online Editor, so you can easily see where they appear in the text.

Enhanced support for Unicode 13 has also been introduced, with all used characters (according to the Unicode definition), now being preserved.

Whether it’s a project you have created yourself or a project package you have received from a client, projects can be published to the cloud at the click of a button.

Simply migrate TMs to the cloud

Save time with the ability to easily migrate your local translation memories (TMs) to Trados Live, from within Studio 2021. Just select your TMs in Studio, follow the simple migration wizard and they will be available for you to use when working in the cloud or on your desktop.

Improved productivity with automatic tag placement

Studio 2021 SR1 can now automatically insert tags into your translation segments, saving you considerable time and effort. Tags that contain information about your document’s formatting, such as font and color, are automatically inserted into a translation segment, so you can be sure that your formatting is correctly replicated from the source through to translated document.
