Dear colleagues,

Up till now I have been using SDL Trados 2006, using the SDLX part mostly. Now I want to start using SDL Trados Studio 2011, but I am not sure which version I need.

Would it be sufficient for me to buy the software and install the "SDLX Translation Memory Plug-in for SDL Trados Studio" (http://www.translationzone.com/en/openexchange/AppDetails.aspx?appid=129) to be able to use my old SDLX TM's in .mdb format? (I don't have any TM's in .tmx format.)

Or do I need the SDL Trados Studio 2011 + SDL Trados 2007 Suite to be able to use those SDLX TM's?

Thanks in advance!

You only need SDL Trados Studio 2011 Oct 30, 2012

Hi,

I guess you already have SDLX so no need to purchase SDL Trados 2007 Suite other than to also get the latest version of SDLX too. Might be useful if you wanted to use SDLX for the occasional thing as you are no doubt very familiar with it.

Studio can upgrade your SDLX memories to SDLTM format and then you can use these instead as you start building your own new TMs in Studio.

The plugin is also good because these negates the need to upgrade, and it's also free. But you do get benefits from upgrading because Studio can optimise the TM for use with Studio during the process... but there is nothing to prevent you from doing it all. You won't lose your old memories.

Regards

Paul
