Hi there,

I have purchased SDL Studio 2009 but am having problems with getting started. I have used Trados 7.0 Freelance in the past, and found it quite easy to learn, but the new version... is a tough cooky.

Does anyone have a simple A-B-C guide how to start with the simplest functions like opening a .doc file, translating, closing each segment and updating the TM when saving the document?

With many thanks, Ave
