I just downloaded Across, for a new client.
I tought it would work as other translation softwares, but I must admit I am a bit lost.
Is there somebody here who could help me out with basic functions of Across ?
Thank youvery much in advance!

I am afraid, Across is one of the most user-enemy software I have ever seen.
I use it occasionally. I have extracted a list of the shortcut key combinations I use most often and keep it on my desk while working on Across.
The Across website offers some training videos. The user manual is quite comprehensive but I'll recommend watching the videos for the basics.
I hope that the project you have at hand is not very large. In any case, I need at least 30% and usually about 50% more time to complete a project as compared to other CAT tools or even word. So, make sure that you always set your rate accordingly and if they do not accept your across-adjusted rates, I can assure you that the whole process will be like hell for you.
Make sure that you got the basics before actually working on the project. You may face problems related to the servers. Do not try to solve them, you can't. Just call your client or better, the Across customer service. They are quite helpful, probably the only upside of the program.
I hope that it helps

I imagine you downloaded the 6.3 Translator Edition and that you have a CrossMarket account?
If so, did you activated the product successfully?
As said by Elif, there is a lot of documentation to start with the soft.
Take time to see how it works standalone and then, you can say to a client he can send you a projet (a CAP file). Do not accept a translation without training before.
