Dear collegues,

When I was working with SDL Trados Sudio 2014 AT THE SAME TIME I was extremly effectively using simple Autohotkey scripts along with autosuggest, autotext, termbase.

For example ::bb::by, ::tt::the, ::plmk::Please let me know

I remember by heart around 4000 such scripts so I can’t imagine my work without them.

My Autohotkey scripts do not work properly with SDL Trados Sudio 2015.

Please let me know what can be the reason for this problem.

AHK and Studio Nov 10, 2015

Hi Maxim,

It may help to be a little more specific about what doesn't work rather than a blanket scripts don't work properly.

However, Studio 2015 introduced a couple of new automation features which can conflict with AHK scripts that do something similar:

1. Autocorrect
2. TM and AT AutoSuggest

There is a free upgrade to 2015 SR1 which resolved most of the issues users of AHK complained about when 2015 was launched, so it's worth making sure you have the latest update. It is an autoupdate so you can do this from within Studio.

If you have the laatest version then you will need to be more specific about what doesn't work.
