Hello
I have been asked by a client to run an Xbench report. I work with Trados Studio 2014 and they advised me that there is a plug-in in Trados Studio to run it.
I have googled it but don't know how to do this.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
thank you

Xbench 3.0 and SDL Trados Studio 2014 Mar 16, 2016

Hello,

The Xbench plugin for SDL Trados Studio 2014 requires Trados Studio 2014 or later.

The plugin also requires Xbench 3.0 to be installed on your computer. Do the following:

1. Go to http://www.xbench.net/index.php/download.
2. Download and install the latest build of Xbench 3.0. It is available in 32-bit and 64-bit edition.
3. Close Studio. Download and install ApSIC Xbench Plugin for SDL Trados Studio 2014/2015 - Build 12.
4. Run Studio.

You should see the Xbench icon on the ribbon.

The following video shows you how the plugin for Studio works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daWkATVCkvg.

I also recommend you to watch the "Getting Started with Xbench 3.0" playlist at the youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUVQmKnkffaq4mKYfU2ZMmyYB0VvleloB. It consists of a series of short videos that explain the most important features.

Regards,
Oscar.

Have you purchased Xbench? Mar 16, 2016

The plugin is just a quick way to access Xbench from within Studio. The plugin is free, but Xbench is not.

Not purchased Xbench Mar 16, 2016

No I haven't
The agency stated the following for the deliverables:
1. Translated bilingual files
2. Xbench report

when I told them I worked with Studio 2014 they said it was fine and I could install the plugin!

Xbench Mar 16, 2016

You can try Xbench 3.0 for free during 30 real days of use (not calendar days). You should have plenty of time to decide whether Xbench suits your needs.
