Hello,

One of my clients wants me to use SDLX in future jobs, and my question is if TRADOS 2009 includes all SDLX functionalities?

Thanks a lot!
Bo

SDLX vs Studio Sep 16, 2009

Hi Bo,

I know there are many SDLX fans in this forum, but perhaps not as regular as the Trados users, so I will try and answer this question for you.

Studio has been developed to take advantage of the best that the Trados and the SDL tools had to offer, but it is a different tool and handles some things in a different way.

There are some functions in SDLX that are not available in Studio yet, and they may appear in a later version, but they are features that are not relevant to all users. Is there something specific you are concerned about and I can tell you whether this is possible with Studio?

In the meantime, you may still get some more feedback from the SDLX users who visit this forum.

Regards

Paul

Rephrasing the question Sep 16, 2009

This is interesting in my case too, as we occasionally do alignments and little jobs in SDLXs, although our main tool has been Trados.

I am rephrasing the question, assuming that this is what Bo originally meant to ask:
Now, will Studio 2009 be compatible (will be able to open and save) with the SDLX file format for memories, alignments, and other files or will we need to keep an old Trados 2006 or 2007 to be able to use true SDLX files?

Good question Sep 16, 2009

Hi Tomás,

Perhaps you are right, and I misunderstood the request. I'll try to answer this one too just in case.

Studio can open an ITD file, allow you to translate it, and will save it back as an ITD. Studio will not allow you to open a Word file (for example) and then save this back as an ITD.

Studio can be used to upgrade an SDLX TM, and it can be used to open and upgrade an SDLX Termbase. I believe Gareth provided some good information on this here;

http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/145391-cant_upgrade_tms_for_studio_2009.html#1216180

You will need to keep SDL Trados 2007 installed to facilitate some of these operations. There is also a new build, 7080, for SDLX to ensure it is capable of connecting to an SDL MultiTerm 2009 termbase and you can find this here;

The software itself is available in your download centre.

I hope this answers your question?

Regards

Paul
