In case you haven’t spotted the news already, I’m pleased to announce that SDL Trados Studio 2014 is now officially released!
There has been a lot of coverage leading-up to Studio 2014 shared on the SDL blogs, on our website, and on Twitter – so by now you probably have a pretty good idea of what’s in the release. If I had to draw your attention to a few “important” highlights in the Studio 2014 release, I’d encourage you to focus on:
- Refreshed user interface featuring Ribbon-style navigation and welcome screens, providing quick & easy access to various tools and help resources.
- Alignment – now integrated in Studio, supports any Studio file type.
- Performance Optimizations – up to 5 times faster on some batch processing operations such as project preparation, analysis, file export.
- TTX, XLIFF and HTML (now supporting HTML5) filter updates for faster opening, preparing and saving these files.
- QuickMerge – enabling users to select and open multiple files as a single document for translation at any stage of the project.
- Automatic concordance search – opens automatically when no match is found in the TM.
- AutoSave – periodically saves the document you are working on.
- Better handling of comments in Microsoft Word – define comments for translation or just for translation notes.
- Display filters for Repetitions – a) show ‘all’ repetitions, b) show first occurrence of a repetition, c) show repetitions occurring after first occurrence.
- New Applications and file filters available on OpenExchange
- Deeper integration with SDL WorldServer – smoother workflow when working with WorldServer packages.
- Updated Studio 2014 Integration API – for closer integration with third party systems.
