Upgrade from SDL Trados 2007 to SDL Trados Studio 2009
Learning Objectives:
This course is designed for existing users of SDL Trados 2007 and will teach delegates how to use the new features and functionality of SDL Trados Studio 2009. Delegates will also learn the most efficient ways to upgrade their existing SDL Trados 2007 resources, i.e. upgrading translation memories, termbases, and tag settings files to the new format.
This course is the first step in understanding how to leverage the full power of SDL Trados Studio 2009 to increase your productivity. The course also shows delegates how to handle scenarios that involve both users of SDL Trados Studio 2009 and user of SDL Trados 2007.

Target Audience:
Translators and Project Managers who are upgrading from SDL Trados 2007 to SDL Trados Studio 2009

Prerequisites:
It is essential that attendees have already worked with SDL Trados 2007 in their day to day translation or project management activities. Those customers that are new to SDL Trados Studio 2009 should go straight to the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Getting Started course.

SDL TRADOS Certification:
This course provides all of the knowledge attendees need to pass their SDL Trados Studio 2009 Level 1 exam (available September 2009).
The SDL TRADOS Certification program enables individual translators and project managers to validate their knowledge and expertise in the use of SDL Trados products. Achieving SDL TRADOS Certification demonstrates that you are fully prepared to work with the world’s leading translation technology.

-SDL Trados Studio 2009 Getting Started Level 1 exam
-SDL Trados Studio 2009 Intermediate Level 2 exam

The exam questions are based on the topics covered in the corresponding SDL Trados Studio 2009 course e.g. attendance on the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Getting Started course, followed by practical experience of the topics covered, will prepare attendees to take the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Level 1 exam.
Each exam consists of 40 questions and lasts 40 minutes. Attendees take their exams by logging into their SDL My Account and selecting the My Certification area, where their exams and corresponding training manuals can be found.
Attendees will be advised on completion of their exam whether they have passed or need to retake.

-SDL Trados Studio 2009 Intermediate – Level 2 Certification, followed by SDL Trados Studio 2009 Advanced – Level 3 Certification
