To translate a file using SDL Trados Workbench:

  1. Download the files

Downloading the Files

Download the files for translation by downloading the translation kit.

Set the preferred Format that corresponds to your version of SDL Trados when downloading the translation kit.

The recommended download options are:

Version Download Options
SDL Trados 2007 and earlier Optimized bilingual Trados RTF

Earlier versions of Trados Workbench are not compliant with the later TMX standards. Starting with Trados 2007, there is better TMX/in-line support.

Unzip the files from the translation kit to your computer.
