Translate a single file in SDL Trados Studio 2014

Jan 7, 2015   //   by ADMIN   //   Trados  //  No Comments

Translate a single file in SDL Trados Studio 2014 directly.

When you only have one file to translate, you can open the file directly in SDL Trados Studio 2014, the system will create a project for your file automatically. But even though a project is created, there are differences between translating a single file and setting up a project with the project wizard. The project of a single file is limited to this file, new files cannot be added to the project.

Then you choose which translation memory and termbase you want to use.

For translation, your file will be saved into the internal SDL XLIFF format. This file will contain source and target language sentences while you translate.

After translation you save your translated file back to the original file format.


To open the sample document for translation, take the following steps:

Selecting the Document and the Language Pair

1. Switch to the Welcome screen, and then click the Translate Single Document button.

3. In the Name text field of the New Translation Memory dialog box enter the name of your TM. It is good practice to use descriptive file names for translation memories, which reflect the language pair, e.g. EN-AR_Training.

4. The Location text field shows the default path in which the TM file will be stored. The TM file will have the extension SDLTM. As you need to select the newly-created TM later for translation, we recommend that you specify a location that you can find easily, e.g. your Desktop/Sample files.

7. From the dropdown list Target Language select Arabic (Egypt).

8. Click the Finish button to create the TM.

The TM has now been created, and is displayed in the Navigation pane on the left-hand side. Since the newly-created TM is empty, there are no translation units (TUs) to display. In the following chapter you will learn how you use this TM for translation.
