Summary:Learn to use SDL Trados 2011. This course is dedicated to people, who already own SDL Studio 2011, but don't use it or prefer not to use it, because they don't really know it. If you're unsure what translation memory, termbase, quality assurance means, consider to take this course.
Description
In 150 minutes (two sessions, 90 minutes + 60 minutes) we will learn to use SDL Trados 2011.

In order to attend the session you would need to have the program installed on your computer. The software features will be presented via the trainer’s machine but after the first online workshop all attendees will be given a task to be completed by using the CAT tool. To purchase the license please check the available TGB offers or download the trial version.

Download the manual which will help you to install the CAT tool.


Please find two webinars pages from the bundle below:

101 - Let's use SDL Trados 2011 - Beginners' workshop

102 - Let's use SDL Trados 2011 - Beginners' workshop

There are brilliant translators out there, who may need some help, when it comes to software tool usage. I will try to bridge this gap for you.

Since the course is dedicated to beginners, we will build a solid base with few important processes and the terminology, which you need to start translating with Studio immediately after the first course.

The training consists of two webinars:

1. The first webinar will last 90 minutes and attendees will learn the most about the tool's usage (What a CAT tool is, the basic terms, translation memory creation, project creation, the quality assurance).

2. After the first webinar all participants will be invited to work on their homework and recreate a project with translation memory and terms on your own into your preferred target language. All participants are welcome to send their questions to the trainer on the training forum.

3. The second webinar will last 60 minutes and will be based on questions shared by attendees after they complete their homework.

Attention: two webinars bundle costs 99 USD and it is not possible to purchase only one session from the bundle.




Feel free to choose and vote for the topics to be also discussed on the second webinar below

Bio: Hajnalka Kis translates professionally since 2009. Since the beginning, Hajnalka started using CAT-tools. In fact, Hajnalka adores CATS (have two quadruped and six installed).

Hajnalka Kis learned, how CAT-s can help me to concentrate myself only on the translation - and only the text to be translated - , without having formatting problems, having to search for a phrase, what she already translated. Hajnalka thinks, we are in an age, where every profession has its electronic - or software - help, but we might fail to understand its usefulness, if we only try to AVOID it and not to USE it for our purposes.

Hajnalka tries to overcome this mental boundary with her first ProZ.com webinar and try to show attendees, that anyone can translate with a CAT tool in less than 5 minutes!

trados sdl trial versionAug 30, 2013

Hello,
I have a question to this webinar. As I am currently deciding on a CAT tool I would like to attend to see if Trados that I already used long ago in an old version will do for me. So therefore my question if it is possible to attend when using only the trial version that is possible to download on the sdl website.

Thank you for your answer
Katinka

Hello Katinka,

Thank you for your interest in the training.

As it has been confirmed with the trainer, any 2011 version will do for the webinar (professional, freelance, trial). On the webinar Hajnalka will give an overview, what one can do with today's CAT tools. If you decide not to use SDL 2011 after the training, but another CAT, the webinar will still be a good basis to know, what to search for in the other CAT tools' interface.

Please feel free to share your ideas on what should be discussed on the webinar here in the forum or email them to helen@proz.com, and they will be discussed on the webinar accordingly. Thanks!

Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen

Hi dearest SDL-ers,

I hope, ALL OF YOU have used Trados 2011 at least once during the past week. This was the original goal. Let you use the software.

I wanted to set up a forum for our small group of newbie-SDL-ers to let you ask me any questions, you want - really ANY - but as Helen (our proz supporter) just confirmed, there is a bug in the forum code of proz, so it won't be immediately available for us.

Guys, if you have questions, which I should cover during the course today, please let them arrive into my mailbox: info@k2l.biz ASAP.

There is still time for me to prepare, the course is for you, take your chance! (no homework arrived to my BTW...frustrating to be a teacher...)
