SDL Trados Studio is the market-leading translation memory software used by over 185,000 translation professionals.
Would you like to be able to deliver projects faster? Wouldn't it be great if you could work on any file type sent by your customers? Think about how much time you could save if you didn't have to translate the same sentence again and again?
SDL Trados Studio provides a range of sophisticated features to help you not only work more easily but also up to 20% faster* than previous versions of SDL Trados. Translation memory (TM) is at the heart of SDL Trados Studio and works by recycling previously translated content so that you can complete translations projects more quickly.

SDL Trados Studio 2011 supports Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. As a minimum requirement, we recommend a Pentium IV-based computer with 1 GB RAM and a screen resolution of 1280x1024. For optimum performance, we recommend 2 GB RAM and a more recent Pentium or compatible processor.
Please also note that if you are interested in creating a terminology database quicker, using SDL MultiTerm Extract, you must be using SDL MultiTerm Extract 2011 to extract and add terminology to SDL MultiTerm 2011. Previous versions of SDL MultiTerm Extract will not work with SDL MultiTerm 2011.
SDL Trados Studio Freelance will work on a workgroup based network (such as a home wireless network), but cannot be used on domain-based networks. If you wish to work on both workgroup and domain-based networks, then you will need to purchase the Professional edition.
A work group based network (also known as a 'peer-to-peer' network) is two or more computers that are networked together. No one machine is in charge, and security and other settings have to be made on each individual computer.
A domain-based network is where the networked computers (either servers or clients) have a hierarchy. Security settings are determined on the domain controllers (servers) and each machine (client) is authenticated by a server when logging on.
