Trados Enterprise - 24.05.1 Release

We have just released the latest update to Trados Enterprise translation management capabilities, and we would like to share the new functionality that has been delivered. 
New features and updates are automatically added to your account, so just login to Trados Enterprise, and they will be available immediately. 

Adobe InDesign Preview 

We have now released Adobe InDesign Preview as a new App, enabling Trados Online Editor users to see an in-context preview of IDML files. 
Optionally, the user can upload a zip package containing images and fonts referenced by the InDesign file. 


This is a paid Add-on, so please reach out to your Trados Account representative for more details. 

Simplified Editing Mode in Online Editor for SME (Subject Matter Expert) Persona 

For Online Editor, we have released a new Editor Mode for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) called Simplified Editing.  
With the advent of the AI empowered Subject Matter Expert, we have worked on a simplified Online Editor experience for the more occasional users.  
To ensure simplicity and efficiency of the Editor for SMEs, some UI elements and functionality have been removed for this Editor Mode. Further details can be found in the Documentation. 

This Mode is available for the Translation, Linguistic Review and Implement Customer Review task types. 


Copilot for Customer Portal 

The Smart Help feature that was previously introduced in Trados, provided by the Trados Copilot AI Assistant, is now available for Customer Portal users, empowering those users with a simpler and more efficient way to interact and engage with the product documentation. 

Note: This functionality will be available from early June.  

Custom Dashboard content  

We have introduced the ability to display custom content in the Dashboard. This allows tenant administrators to define custom information which is presented to users in their Dashboard.  
This feature supports rich text, making it possible to include images or links to external sources. 

Users can define Dashboard custom content by going to your Avatar -> Manage Account -> Custom Dashboard Content view. 

You can create new content by clicking on Add Widget. From here, you can specify the size, position and content to be included. Additionally, you can specify if the custom content should be visible in Trados, Customer Portal or both. 

Note: The Customer Portal functionality be available from early June. 

Once configured, users will see the content in the Dashboard when logging in: 

As part of this release, we have introduced a new permission User Interface -> View Custom Content. 
The new permission will be allocated automatically to any existing default or custom roles that have the User Interface > View Dashboard permission.  

By introducing a new permission, this allows administrators to expose custom content to users/roles that don’t have access to the regular Dashboard, such as linguists. A user can therefore have access to a Dashboard showing only custom content, when this has been configured, without them having access to the regular Dashboard in TE. 

Custom Help menu links 

Additionally, we have introduced the ability to define custom links in the Help menu. This is useful if you have your own documentation or first level ticketing system you want to direct your users to. 
Users can define Dashboard custom content by going to your Avatar -> Manage Account -> Custom Menu items view. 

Once defined, these links show up in the help menu in the User interface 


Copy Verification Settings from Project Template 

We have now introduced the option to copy Verification settings from one Project Template and paste the settings to one or more other Project Templates. This is helpful when you make a change that you want to apply to many other Project Templates. 


Support for time zones per user

Users now have the option to specify their time zone in Avatar –> User Settings. This is particularly helpful for e-mail notifications, as when this is set, we now consider the correct time zone for notifications. 

By default, the Trados UI will continue to use the time zone set in your browser if no timzeone is specified. 

API updates 

Our Public API continues to evolve with some customer-requested features. We have just released the following updates: 

  • You can configure the number of days after which projects are given the Completed or Archived status automatically using the completionConfiguration option under the following endpoints: Create and Update Project, Create and Update Project Template. 
  • The field languageProcessingRuleId under Update Translation Engine endpoint will become mandatory. The enforcement is scheduled at a minimum of six months from now. 
  • As a reminder, we want to let our users know that we updated the folder/resource locations to the new format, which now includes the path. The old fields are marked as deprecated and will be decommissioned soon. Please ensure you update the implementation if you are using fields that are marked as deprecated. 
  • Various bug fixes. 

For more details, please refer to the What's New page.  

Additional changes 

  • The ability to auto-complete tasks has been extended to all human tasks. This setting is disabled by default except for the Customer Review task, where we have defined a default of 90 days, which can be modified if necessary. 

  • Vendor Project Managers can now freely re-assign tasks to other Vendor users from the Orders area. 

  • Filtered Terminology exports are now available from the termbase list. 

  • We now indicate visibility as a column in the Customer list, so you can see which Customers are set to private. 

  • Custom Fields are now displayed in the side pane from the Files for Review page in the Customer Portal, thereby providing Custom Reviewers with visibility of Custom Fields where relevant. 
    Note: This feature will be available from early June. 

  • Project Managers can now edit Vendor Quotes at any time from Projects → Costs 

  • We have added a new feature under the Account Management area, which allows Administrators to display usernames as they are entered during user creation, rather than retrieving usernames from the RWS ID system.
    Note: this setting applies for the entire tenant.

  • Various bug fixes and UX enhancements. 


We hope this post was informative, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with updates to the product.
