Looking for inspiration? Take a look at some of our customer's stories showing how they transformed their own translation processes, resulting in improved quality, increased productivity and significant reduction in costs.

Karcher logo

How the global market leader in cleaning technology improved translation quality

With Kärcher's fast rate of innovation, over 90% of their products are no more than five years old. To support this, over 900 documents are translated into 43 languages each year. As well as a reported cost saving of 50% in the first year of use, SDL's complete solution has enabled Kärcher's translators to easily access their company-specific terminology to ensure that all content, communications and branding are consistent.

MPS logo

How the school district have increased their productivity to cope with increasing demand

Increasing translation demands brought about by new local and national regulations in the USA had made it difficult for Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) to cope with their workload. Since installing SDL Trados Studio, MPS have gone from translating into one language to a total of seven, and translations no longer have to be requested far in advance due to their fast completion.

Innova logo

How the global gaming company tackled project management challenges

Innova publishes and distributes a large portfolio of online multi-player games which are frequently developed overseas. With many translators from all over the world working on projects, managing these effectively and efficiently was difficult. Learn how Innova used SDL software to speed up turnaround times and handle larger projects through centralizing assets, providing greater project visibility and leveraging existing translations.

WellMed logo

How the healthcare company's small in-house team handle high volumes of work

With just two people in their in-house translation team, WellMed faced a big challenge when they were given over 700 projects a year of which 60% required fast turnarounds. Using SDL Trados Studio has enabled WellMed to successfully complete this big workload, offering same or next day turnaround on the majority of projects, without the need to hire any new translators or outsource work.

Throughout March 2018, SDL offered free three-hour training courses on SDL Trados Studio.  The offer has now come to an end.

However, we continue to offer both introductory and advanced learning through classroom training and self-paced eLearning.

Great training enables you to gain maximum benefits from your technology investment. Our training team will help you to ensure that your staff quickly and confidently get the most out of your technology investment.
