We have been using SDL Trados Business Manager for almost a year now and it made our work in the translation agency much easier. SDL Trados Business Manager is practical, easy to use and you can enter there all the data that you need. We especially love that we can have our projects, customers, translators, invoices, quotes, tax reports and analyses all in one place!
