Why should localization professionals be excited?

  • SDL Trados Studio 2011 SP2, specifically the ability to open and work with documents that use tracked changes in both the source and target text, provides you with the opportunity to work on documents which demand full auditing and traceability over the translation process. A great example would be any industry where documentation and translation is heavily regulated, such as pharmaceutical labelling or the legal profession. It is also very useful to add value to traditional translation scenarios such as localizing marketing collateral in different languages, which require constant changes during the approval process.
  • In addition the ability to edit source brings some extra flexibility to the localization process with authors and translators being able to work more efficiently together.
 

What would be the benefits for translators and reviewers?

  • More visibility on what has changed in the source
  • More accuracy during the translation process
  • Less time involved in localizing and reviewing documents
  • Ability to quickly see what part of the document needs to be edited or reviewed
 

As a Project Manager can I restrict the ability to edit source?

Yes, it is possible to restrict the ability to edit source when you create a project. Also note that edit source capability is only available for Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) and Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, pptx) files.
