I joined the Proz TGB-Program to purchase the Starter Pack Offer (SDL Trados 2007 SP1 Software + Training Session+ Certification Exam) as advertised on Proz.com.

However, when I followed the link that was sent to me, I was asked to choose between "SDL Trados 2007 Freelance - Certification starter Pack - SDLX- TGB" and "SDL Trados 2007 Freelance - Certification starter Pack - Workbench - TGB".

Since I am an absolute newbie to TM, could someone please explain the difference between these two options?

I have sent an email to , but have yet to received a response. Because the sale closes on 11/19, I opted to post this here in hope of a speedy reply.

Best regards,

When you buy Trados 2007, you have the opportunity to use Trados (Translator Workbench) and SDLX - two software with different user interface - since you mention you are new explore Trados - go to SDL international - - tutorial for Trados or explore SDL go to SDL international - translation in SDLX - Hope this helps.

Hello Ayob,

many thanks for your reply. In the end I chose the Workbench package.

Can anyone tell me if Workbench or SDLX files are interchangeable? Nov 20, 2007

Dear everyone,

Just like Hendarto I am faced with the decision, which one to buy. Can anyone plaease tell me if the TMs and translated files are interchangeable? Can I use previous TMs from TRADOS with the SDLX interface? Can I also open projects with SDLX interface, which have been translated with TRADOS?

Please help quickly!!

Thank you
