Prerequisites:

This beginners course is fairly intensive and aspires to get the participants up an running with the daily use of basic Trados functions. It is strongly recommended therefore that interested parties spend a little time to get acquainted with some terminology and simple basics of computer aided translation (CAT) tools before taking part in this course. This will not only aid the smooth running of the course, but will also facilitate a more meaningful and productive learning process. Even a casual research in the topics suggested below would be highly beneficial:

- What does computer aided translation actually mean and why it is becoming more and more popular? (Optional)

- What are your reasons of wanting to make use of this tool?

- What is a Translation memory? What is actually stored in the Translation memory? (Optional)

- What does file format mean? Can you name file formats other than Microsoft World document (doc, rtf), Excel document (xls) and PowerPoint document (ppt)?

- What does source language, target language, bi-lingual text mean?

If you are already familiar with the above that's great, otherwise a couple of hours of research on the Internet would work wonders.
