Video tutorial: QA check on SDL Trados unclean Word files

This video tutorial shows how easy it is to perform a Quality Assurance check and a Terminology QA Check on a SDL Trados unclean Word file. The QA Check will analyze SDLX compatible files (like SDL Trados unclean Word files) against a Termbase to make sure the terms in the termbase were used in the translation. The QA Check can find potential errors and issues like missing or partially missing translations, inconsistent translations, multiple dots or spaces, etc. The tool will produce an report with a list of all the issues found. The list is interactive so clicking on the report item will jump to the respective segment where the issue was found. The files can be corrected directly from SDL Edit (included in the Trados Suite) and saved as an unclean file.

SDL Trados Studio 2009 Demo

SDL has released a Demo version of SDL Trados Studio 2009. Those who wanted to know what the big fuzz (good and bad) is about can finally see it for themselves. Also, the Service Pack 1 for SDL Trados Studio 2009 will be released soon; I’ve been using the SP1 Beta for a couple of days, and it seems pretty stable… so far. I did get an error due to my custom Language Resource settings. But resetting the TM’s Language Resource fixed the problem.
