Take a course or see if you find some Youtube video. Feb 27, 2015

ProZ is running Studio 2014 courses all the time. I have finished the basics and have applied for the intermediary course.

But I would also think there are videos on Youtube that you may follow.

The Manual Feb 27, 2015

Mats Linder's Studio 2014 - The Manual is a very good starting point.

That said, always keep in mind that you need to adapt the tool for your workflow, not the other way around. So I suggest reading the manual, and any other reference material, in the context of learning what this environment can do for you rather than trying to learn how to use it.

@Roy- Thanks for the info Roy, but course can be expensive, specially when you are starting out. I will see if I can find anything on YouTube.

@Shai- Will definitely see if I can get hold of that book.-will also see what other people suggest.

@Witold

Thanks for that, will check it out, but I find sometimes the help files are difficult to follow;
Also I was looking for a book to read, I didnt want to look at the screen for a long time reading online.

Mats Linder's Studio 2014 Manual and practice Feb 27, 2015

Hi there,
although it has been mentioned before - I would like to back Shai Navé on that question. I have the PDF-version of The Studio 2014 Manual and I used it to get a good overview on features and functionality.

I also think that actually playing with the sample project helps a lot. You can't really break anything if you use that sample project and although the sample really is a little idealistic every now and then, you do learn a lot about actually using the keyboard instead of searching for buttons... It works quite well to get acquainted with the main features. That's also a good way to use the help files, because you will come across quite concrete questions instead of general questions you couldn't look up in the help index.

Best regards and have a nice weekend!

Try this one Feb 27, 2015

Dear Luke,

you may try and find:

"SDL Trados Studio - A Practical Guide" by Andy Walker free as PDF or for cash as paper

on:

www.it-ebooks.info

They sell it on Amazon as paper.

SDL have another free PDF inside their website. It is possible also to find and download it for free with Google:


Quick Start Guide SDL Trados Studio 2014

it's free as PDF but opens only for a short time.

Good luck!

... you can also scroll down a little in the same location as these videos and you will see three pdf guides that are quite useful.

Regards

Paul

You've had a very generous response to your enquiry ... Feb 27, 2015

... and now, I very strongly suggest you take a deep breath and EITHER:
- INVEST your time (and money!) in reading everything that's been pointed out to you - including the book for which you'll have to pay €38 (+ the cost of a quire of A4 paper and a fresh ink cartridge if you're allergic to compuer screens);
OR
- recognise that if you do not INVEST in your start-up business, your 'business plan'* will be a miserable flop - like the vast majority of start-ups in the past several years.

*Errr... You do have a 'business plan', don't you ...?
