Hello fellow translators,

We just bought TRADOS. It looks like a fantastic tool, but the learning process is a bit intimidating.

Besides the lengthy pdf tutorials on the TRADOS website...

... anyone know of a simple tutorial that addresses the practical everyday use of TRADOS by your average \"Joe\"-freelanceer?

Sure! Feb 5, 2003

Go to the Trados users group at - join it and search for \"Trados for Dummies\" - it\'s the best way to get started.

Hi Todd,

Congratulations on your new acquisition! You do not have to download the lengthy .pdf files. At the you should be able to download a file which will then help you to install the - very friendly- interactive tutorials for each and every component of the Trados suite.

Hope this will help you, and goodluck!
