The Spring 2017 SDL Trados Roadshow series is coming to you!

Join us, for what we hope will be, an informative and entertaining day of information sharing, reflection and debate.  We start the day considering whether technology advances could mean a fight for control between humans and machines or a chance to find a way of working together for mutual benefit.  We would be interested in hearing your opinion!

You may have noticed our new SDL logo so we will briefly introduce our new SDL brand and share the thinking behind the logo.  Then move into our product overview sessions with presentations covering the new features of SDL Trados Studio 2017, SDL Trados GroupShare 2017 and SDL MultiTerm 2017.  Following lunch, we will split into two product training streams – this time, the content focus will be on project management and translation productivity.  Take a look at the agenda below - and find out what the day will hold for you. 

This year, following your feedback, we have planned more networking time so that you can meet with your SDL contacts, extend your network of translation professionals and catch up on the latest industry news.  Plus all attendees will receive a certificate of attendance, which you may be able to use to support your continuing professional development program.

The SDL Trados Roadshow series is always over-subscribed, attendance is free of charge and places get booked up quickly, so please register early.
