I have two clients who require I use Trados for translation.

For each one I need to maintain a different set of configurations, templates, options and so forth within Trados, each which conflicts with the other.

Is it possible to maintain each client's configuration separately?

I have two computers (one is an old backup), each with a Trados instance, and I was considering maintaining one configuration on each, then regenerating the license file each time I switch between my customers, but I'd prefer something less arduous.

Which version are you using? Sep 19, 2009

Hi Chiela,

You didn't mention which version you were using so I'll respond with regard to SDL Trados Studio 2009.

You can save the specific settings you use for a client when you set up your first Project for them, and use this as a template everytime you need to work on a Project for that particular client. You can have as many Clients ( or templates) as you like.

Kind regards

SDL Support
