This happens to be my first blog entry! Yay!
I’ve been using SDL Trados Studio for a while now and so far, I really liked it. The release candidate still has plenty of bugs, but overall it’s very usable. It’s a shame because, in my opinion, it’s the best product SDL has launched and it fixes many of the productivity issues of previous versions.
Anyway, since many of the commands are new, I compiled a list of all the shortcuts in the Editor view. I find it very useful; I hope somebody else will too. I uploaded two lists: one with all the Editor shortcuts and the other one has the most common shortcuts highlighted.
|Confirm and Move to Next Segment||Ctrl+Alt+Enter|
|Confirm and Move to Next Unconfirmed Segment||Alt+Add|
|Copy Source to Target||Ctrl+lns, Alt+lns|
|Delete to End of Row||Ctrl+D|
|Move to Next Segment||Ctrl+Down|
|Move to Previous Segment||Ctrl+Up|
|Perform Concordance Search||Enter|
|Repeat Go To||Ctrl+J|
|Show Translated Terms||Ctrl+Shift+L|
|Source Concordance Search||Ctrl+F3|
|Target Concordance Search||Ctrl+Shift+F3|
|Toggle formatting tag display||Ctrl+Shift+H|
Edit: SDL has released a Show Shortcut list plugin that can be added to the toolbar. I haven’t tried it yet but sounds really helpful.
Also, SDL acknowledged that their policy about SDL Trados 2007 and SDL Trados 2007 Suite was a mistake and they have corrected the course, so I removed my comment about not upgrading.
