The Manual

At last: The 2022 version

The new version of the manual – the first edition of the 2022 version of this critically acclaimed, comprehensive manual – was published in September 2023, with 689 pages in A4 size, pdf format. It is a manual written for the translator by a translator.

This version is based on the latest, SR1 version of Trados Studio 2022. It has about 50 pages of new material, out of which some 45 pertains to the Cloud Capabilities, i.e. working on Studio projects in the cloud. (The rest is updates scattered through the volume; in particular all references to the AppStore plugins are now valid.) Working in the cloud is something that RWS, the owner of Trados, very much sees as the future of translation work and CAT tools.

Here is what the Trados Studio expert Paul Filkin had to say (last October) about the manual:

I think your manual offers tremendous value… at least that would be my personal view.  I think your writing style, method of explaining things that can often be complex and confusing, and most importantly the fact you easily pick up on things that need better explanation than our technical writers would has created a manual every Studio user would benefit from owning.

Also available are versions for Studio 2021 and 2019 (643 and 611 pages, respectively). PDF format, for own printout (i.e. you are not buying a printed book – sorry!) and reading on screen. A more detailed description is given here. (And here are my views on what I believe characterises a good, user-friendly manual.)
