Good morning to everybody,
I want to buy SDL Studio 2011, translation agencies are requesting it but on the SDL website there is only Studio 2014 available...or at least that seems to me.
Can anyone help me? I contacted directly them but I got no answer so far. Actually it's quite urgent.
Thanks in advance for your help

Studio 2014 is the latest version.

If your only reason for buying Studio 2011 is to work with agencies that ask for it, don't worry, 2014 is completely compatible with 2011 - files, projects, packages and all.

If I were you I'd definitely buy 2014. It's got new features that 2011 didn't have: file merging on the fly, transferring comments from Studio to Word docs, improved concordance, better filters, a user-friendly ribbon and an excellent home page with resources for beginners.

If you want to read more about these features, have a look at my blog post on Studio 2014:

I am from SDL.
We do sell only Studio 2014 now, as 2011 was our previous version - however this is compatible with 2011 and you can work on 2011 project you may receive from an agency.
Best regards

Thanks very much to all of you for your answers and infos.
My only doubt was about the compatibility between Studio 2011 and 2014 but you gave me enough assurances, I decided then to buy Studio 2014.
Best regards
