Description

Trados Freshstart is a godsend for anyone participating in the Studio/MultiTerm Beta program, and it's also very handy for support engineers, help desk specialists and also individual users.


The idea is the application provides an easy way to reset all the user files in a couple of clicks without having to navigate through folders, making sure you have the right permissions etc. The application also provides a useful description of what each of the users files contains. This is particularly useful as it will help you to understand what data is held where and what the impact might be if you reset these files.

There is a restore function if you make a mistake, but generally none of the operations are fatal!


To install, download the zip file to your desktop. Unzip it and place the MSI file onto your desktop.

Now run the MSI installer by double clicking it.

Once installation is complete, you will find the start icon on your desktop which you simply double-click to run.

You must have admin rights to run this application!

Once you have downloaded the .zip-

save this to your Desktop, unzip and double-click the .msi installer to begin the installation.

Once installed, you will now find the application in Control Panel- Programs and Features

When to use Freshstart

As is the case with any software, you may be confronted with errors that cannot simply cannot be explained, which may mean the installation for instance has become corrupted.

Removing Trados Studio and simply reinstalling, will, in most cases, not fix the issue(s) as these will remain after installation, so repairing/or resetting Trados Studio is the recommended solution.

These errors can appear, for example as:

-Object reference not set...

-An unexpected error has occurred...

-Could not find part of path...

-...

Before using Trados Freshstart, it's worth perhaps considering, simply first resetting Windows Layout, as this often resolves unexplained issues without the need to reset Studio.


Freshstart UI

When you start Studio (simply click the Windows Start Icon and start typing Freshstart)

Select Run as administrator


  

Once you have the app open- you will see which versions of Studio (MultiTerm) you have installed.

For example, on this machine, we have Studio 2021/2019/2017

Select the version you wish to reset.

Now when you hover over each path- you are provided a description of what data is contained in the selected path

As default, all paths are selected. If you know exactly which folder to reset, you can deselect the ones you don't need.

You can choose to 'Repair Studio' or 'Remove' the selected folders.

Restore allows you to return to the previous state, with near zero loss of data.

Now select Repair Studio- you will normally receive a message asking you whether you accept this application to make changes- select OK

If you now see a message telling you to close XYZ applications- confirm and proceed.

The process will take a couple of minutes. Once finished, please restart Studio and check the error no longer occurs.

XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio

By Trados AppStore Team

The ProblemYou need to share files for translation or review and the people you are sharing with don't use Studio, they can't support SDLXLIFF, and they want to use a CAT tool. You also do so much of this you need to have a better way of managing the process. You want to be able to share one XLIFF on a multi-lingual project and have the translators complete the target language.The SolutionThe XLIFF Manager is the solution to this problem as it provides the following core features:- export your Studio projects as vanilla XLIFF 1.2 files- export your Studio projects as Google Polyglot XLIFF files- choose whether the target language should be set or not on export- choose whether you export all the segments in your files or not- import the translated XLIFF files back into Studio and update your Studio projects- map unsupported languages from your clients system in support of the import- generate reports of the changed work- be in control of the end to end process with a project management view in StudioPlanned Enhancements for the future updates- progress bars while waiting for the export/import. Useful for large projects- support for tracked changes in the import- add support for an XLIFF 2.1 export- add support for an SDLXLIFF export (to help with the management of an SDLXLIFF file workflow outside of a package)- we're open to suggestions in the RWS Community!To learn how to use this application, please please check the Documentation tab.
