Event now full. Thanks for your interest.

Come to the Autumn 2017 SDL Trados Roadshow, don't miss out!

SDL turned 25 this year - where has the time gone?  We and our customers have enjoyed a long journey together, and now, more than ever, we are looking forward to an exciting future - there is so much to share with you. We hope you will be able to join us for an informative and entertaining day of information, reflection and debate, along with some product training in the afternoon.  

To start the day, a keynote speaker will deliver a stimulating talk to spark discussion. We have some research to share with you 'hot off the press' from our Corporate Insight Survey - and then we move into our product overview sessions including presentations covering the new features of SDL Trados Studio 2017 Service Release 1 (SR1) and Machine Translation.

The industry topic sparking much interest is the subject of ‘Augmented Translation’ and what this means for empowering translators to deliver in their own unique way. We will also share our thoughts on the development of intelligent machine translation.  

Following lunch, we will offer product training – this time, we will offer one training stream which will include content for all levels.  In addition, if you are completely new to our CAT tool, SDL Trados Studio - we will run a beginners introductory session during the lunchbreak. The full training agenda will be updated on this page regularly.

This year, following your feedback, we have given delegates the option of joining us for lunch and the afternoon training ONLY - should being away from work for a whole day not be possible. You will be given the chance to select which option you prefer in future email communications, once you have registered to attend.

All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance, for collection at the event, 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.
