SDL Expands its Language Technologies Solutions

SDL has announced the expansion of its Language Technologies solutions to provide open access across the entire supply chain to the translation memory tool. The latest release provides a low-cost subscription edition of SDL Trados Studio to extend the supply chain, an environment for the community to openly develop their own applications and additional automated translation offerings.

The entire offering now allows everyone in the translation supply chain to leverage the SDL Trados Studio translation memory infrastructure and distribute files and information across the whole process of translation from translators to developers and enterprises:
All translators and reviewers can now access the translation memory tool through a low-cost subscription solution
Enhanced productivity tools such as additional automated translation tools are integrated into SDL Trados Studio for power users
Developers can now access the open framework of SDL technology to develop their own applications
Content creators can create high-quality, consistent content by leveraging the latest SDL Trados Studio technology
Enterprises can now share SDL Trados Studio files with their translators through SDL's enterprise translation management solutions, ensuring the easy flow of information for all

At a monthly subscription fee of 8, the Starter edition of SDL Trados Studio offers accessibility to the occasional translator and translation community to reuse previously translated content and share it between enterprises and translators. A scaled down version of SDL Trados Studio, the Starter edition, offers the essential functionality of its elder sibling, at an entry level price point to appeal to the occasional translator. Additionally, the new offering will benefit corporations and Language Service Providers as it provides a lower investment threshold for their translators or reviewers to access the outstanding technology that SDL offers.

SDL Trados Studio Professional and Freelance, editions both provide additional productivity tools to translators and the newly released service pack 2 enables the translator to plug in to multiple automatic translation tools, offering a flexible automated translation platform within the translator's desktop environment. A choice of tools is available from SDL, Google Translate and Language Weaver, giving the user maximum choice and flexibility.

SDL announces the beta launch of SDL OpenExchange, inviting the developer community to make use of standard open APIs to increase the functionality of SDL Trados Studio. Through SDL OpenExchange, applications can be made available to the user community. SDL wishes to promote the further development of the platform for the user and by the user. SDL Trados Studio becomes 'your Studio' as SDL empowers the user community to dictate future requirements and functionality.
