    • Under Community Review on
    • 10 Comments
    We have a client who sends us .ai files in batches for an ongoing project. So far we've been working with now outdated workarounds, which nobody is willing to pay for as they do not add value to the translation. Export and import are very time consuming...

    I would like to see maintenance options in the TM editor to be able to clean it fast, without having to export it to an external editor and then re-importing it again. The options could include: - find segments where source and target are the same...

    Trados probably is one of the slowest program running on my computer. It's ok for most translation/review and basic project management tasks. But a lot of tasks are very slow when working with big files / lots of files, whereas CPU / RAM usage is...
  • Make "Cancel" instantaneous

    It sometimes takes ages to cancel a running process in Studio while there seem to be no steps that must be undone. When analysing files for example, there seems to be no reason for Studio taking minutes to cancel the analysis task.

    Summary: allow segments to be filtered by font color, highlighting, bold, underline etc. I frequently get given projects by clients that may have a couple of thousand segments but in which there are only a small number of segments that actually need...

    • Under Community Review on
    • 7 Comments
    When working with Studio it is quite often necessary to add variables and/or abbrevations to the language resources list of your working TMs. Especially when working with project TMs it ends up in quite a hard job, as you have to open the language resources...
  • Possibility to manually add a new translation unit to a TM

    • Under Community Review on
    • 16 Comments
    It would be very practical in certain cases to be able to manually add a new translation unit to a TM, where you type in (or paste in) your source and target segments. In terms of settings information, the TM could automatically add some default parameters...
