Upgrade from SDL Trados 2007 to SDL Trados Studio 2009
Learning Objectives
This course is designed for existing users of SDL Trados 2007 and will teach delegates how to use the new features and functionality of SDL Trados Studio 2009. Delegates will also learn the most efficient ways to upgrade their existing SDL Trados 2007 resources, i.e. upgrading translation memories, termbases, and tag settings files to the new format.
This course is the first step in understanding how to leverage the full power of SDL Trados Studio 2009 to increase your productivity. The course also shows delegates how to handle scenarios that involve both users of SDL Trados Studio 2009 and user of SDL Trados 2007.

Target Audience
Translators and Project Managers who are upgrading from SDL Trados 2007 to SDL Trados Studio 2009

Prerequisites
It is essential that attendees have already worked with SDL Trados 2007 in their day to day translation or project management activities. Those customers that are new to SDL Trados Studio 2009 should go straight to the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Getting Started course.

SDL TRADOS Certification
This course provides all of the knowledge attendees need to pass their SDL Trados Studio 2009 Level 1 exam (available September 2009).
The SDL TRADOS Certification program enables individual translators and project managers to validate their knowledge and expertise in the use of SDL Trados products. Achieving SDL TRADOS Certification demonstrates that you are fully prepared to work with the world’s leading translation technology.
Certification in SDL Trados Studio 2009 product can be achieved by taking the following web based exams:

• SDL Trados Studio 2009 Getting Started Level 1 exam
• SDL Trados Studio 2009 Intermediate Level 2 exam
• SDL Trados Studio 2009 Advanced Level 3 exam

The exam questions are based on the topics covered in the corresponding SDL Trados Studio 2009 course e.g. attendance on the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Getting Started course, followed by practical experience of the topics covered, will prepare attendees to take the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Level 1 exam.
Each exam consists of 40 questions and lasts 40 minutes. Attendees take their exams by logging into their SDL My Account and selecting the My Certification area, where their exams and corresponding training manuals can be found.
Attendees will be advised on completion of their exam whether they have passed or need to retake.

Further Development

• SDL Trados Studio 2009 Intermediate Level 2 Certification, followed by SDL Trados Studio 2009 Advanced Level 3 Certification See sessions listed here

Bio: I am a freelance translator and translation environment trainer with 15 and 12 years of experience respectively. I became SDL Trados 2007 certified in October 2007, SDL Trados Studio 2009 certified in November 2009 and memoQ certified in September 2009.

My training experience spans across many industry sectors in the UK and abroad. It includes the training of translators and project managers at corporate companies, LSPs and governmental institutions as well as of staff and students at universities and of freelance translators.

My main goal as a trainer is always to get my trainees to feel confident and enthusiastic about using their translation environment tool. My ultimate goal is for the learning objectives to be reached and for the trainees to be able to implement their new skills in real-life projects immediately.

I endeavour to achieve these goals by pitching the training level correctly and creating a dynamic training environment where a clear end easy to follow demonstration of the software is mixed with plenty of hands-on exercises. During online training sessions where hands-on exercises are not possible, I encourage trainees to ask as many questions as possible, so that I can expand on and clarify areas they find problematic.

Upgrade from SDL Trados 2007 to SDL Trados Studio 2009

Trados 2007 experienceJun 30, 2010

I just finished a CAT course in my Certificate program at NYU. We used SDLX and Trados 2007 Workbench, and Tag Editor in the course for a couple of months and I have just begun to use it in some translations for work. I bought the SDLX 2009 Suite through the NYU program and have been poking around. Do you think I have too limited experience in 2007 to benefit from this transition course or should I perhaps take the Intro to Trados 2009 for beginners?

Robert

Hi Robert,

For new users who have never used the product they should start with Getting Started and then Intermediate.
I suggest you compare the two programs on the course pages (in the box "topics to be covered during the course") to make a final decision based on your previous knowledge.

Hope this is of help.
