Hello,

is there a good and clear tutorial for Studio? I've already seen several tutorials, however they all give lots of information at a time, but no clear and simple way of proceeding to start immediately working with it:
"First step: so and so, and how; second step: so and so, and how, etc." Do you know something like that?
Thank you in advance

Not sure why you would want to learn Studio 2011 in Mid-2015, with Studio 2014 being the current version and Studio 2015 just around the corner, but here you are:

Learn SDL Trados Studio 2011 in 10 minutes

There's a similar one for Studio 2014.

Dominique's link to the video is quite useful, but in 10 mins the video introduces a ton of resources (Autosuggest dictionary, termbase, etc.) that a new user won't have. Also it uses a project package for translation, so a translation memory has already been set up.

If you are really looking for a simply step by step method, try this post, which I wrote for 2014. You'll just have to figure out where some of the features are in 2011, but mostly it's not too different:

Emma is quite right about the "Studio 2011 in 10 minutes" video not really being aimed at newbies starting from scratch. This is why you may want to have a look at my "First steps with Studio 2015" video, which starts by creating a new project instead of opening a package created for you:

https://youtu.be/d9NW-9Pvp2w

It also shows how to create your own termbase (from an existing Excel sheet), as opposed to using a termbase created for you (as in the SDL video).

Again, I don't think it makes much sense to start learning Studio 2011 in mid-2015, now that it has been superseded by two newer versions.
