I have recently bought Trados 5. I find it a very good software solution, but not easy to use for the first time. I would like to learn on my own, as I cannot attend a training course... any hints?

Thank you.

Hola Cristina:

Cuando empecé a trabajar con el Trados no tenía mucha idea sobre cómo utilizarlo. Lo tuve que comprar por motivos de trabajo - dependía de eso mi participación en un gran proyecto.

Sabía lo básico sobre el Trados y a medida que iba haciendo hacía cosas nuevas aprendía más sobre su utilización.

He recurrido muchas veces también a los foros para solucionar las dudas que tenía.

Te recomendaría que le echases un vistazo a esta página http://www.transref.org/, Expert Opinions, Cat Tools Reviews, Translation Memory from O to R. El artículo trata sobre Trados y otra serie de programas. Te explica los puntos básicos.

Si te puedo ayudar en algo, envíame un mensaje.

Suerte.

Saludos.

Hi Cristina,

Have a look at www.translationzone.com, a site operated by Trados. There should be some information in there, as well as discussion groups offering help by users.



If you have any specific questions, you can contact me directly - I\'m using T5 Team & Freelance.



HTH - Ralf
