Trados Live Essential - 21.04.1 Release

Last week we released an update to Trados Live Essential that we would like to inform you about today. The main focus of this release was in the Translation Management offering with the launch of the custom workflow editor and a nifty set of other enhancements in that offering. The details on that release area described in more detail at RWS Language Cloud - 21-04-1-release. To coincide with this ground-breaking release, we also launched SDL Trados Studio 2021 SR1 CU5 to support the new workflow functionality as well as provide a very comprehensive set of other bug fixes and updates. See the Studio 2021 SR1 release article  in our knowledge base for more details.

But we did not stop with the launch of the workflow editor, there are also some important changes for Trados Live Essential as described in this blog.

RWS rebrand

SDL Trados Live has now been rebranded to Trados Live to reflect the integration of SDL into the RWS Group. The main change for Live Essential is the change of colors in the user interface which adopts a set of colors that is more accessibility compliant than the previous set. Other than that, all the functionality you know has remained as before.
