SDL TRADOS Certification Level 2
SDL Trados 2007 is the world’s most popular computer aided translation (CAT) and project management solution for the translation professional.

The SDL Trados Certification program enables individual translators and translation teams to progressively increase their knowledge and expertise through attendance on a series of 3 training courses. Each of the training courses leads to a level of certification – culminating in the final Level 3 Advanced Certification. Every level of certification is achieved by passing an exam which demonstrates the level of competence attained.
