Hi guys! I wanted to know if someone knows a place where I can get free samples of sdlxliff files in English to practice the use of Trados.

Thank you very much in advance.

For example, if you have a demo copy of Trados. Use Trados to create a new file your want to practice. Certain Trados sub-directories/folders also have sample project files you can practice e.g. EN>GE pair.

Sample files Sep 21, 2015

Hi Jorge,

When you install Studio there is a sample project installed that contains files for practising. If you look in the Welcome View and then select the "Getting Started" tab in the middle of the screen then you'll find some tutorials which should be helpful.

Regards

My problem is that I have sdlxliff file to translate but I think I did something wrong when opening it and now I don´t have Access to TM. Above the window where you translate and below the Project settings, the window is blank and says "No open translation memories or automated translation servers".

I would post an image but I don´t know how to do it.
