Can I translate a Powerpoint-presentation i SDL Trados Studio or Workbench without PowerPoint installed on my laptop? I only have MS Office Starter (will purchase the professional version soon, but the bank transfer to the seller in the USA takes up to a week, and I have a job now where the source file is a Powerpoint-presentation).

If that is not possible, can I convert the PP to PDF (I know I can do that online, but am not sure about the results), translate the PDF in Studio or Workbench, and then convert back to PP when finished_

Yes, you can translate any supported filetype in Studio without the native application (that's the whole point of a standalone application).
Of course, you won't have the realtime preview or Office spellcheck features.

The only thing to remember is that you won't be able to view the ppt afterwards if you haven't got the full office version installed. One workaround would be to upload it to Google Drive (the old Google Docs) to view it there.
