I am currently learning how to use Trados.

There are a few words I can't find the definition for and don't really know what they are:

First of all who can tell me what SDL stands for? I have been trying to find it and was not successful.

What is a filter is Trados 2007, 2009? Can anyone give an accurate and simple definition? (sorry all this may sound stupid, but I really like to know what words mean...)

If someone can help me that would be really great.

Thanks
Nathalie

SDL is an abbrevation of a private company which has bought Trados; however, I do not exactly know what it stands for. Long form of Trados: TRAnslation & DOcumentation Software.

See Help Dec 4, 2010

In Trados 2009, to see a definition of a filter, at the top of your screen, click Help, then Help Topics, then Index, in the "Type in the keyword to find:" line, type Filters, then in the list click Filter Translation Memory.

Good luck.
