RC-WinTrans can be used in conjunction with the SDL TRADOS™ Translator's Workbench.  An integrated GUI (graphical user interface) makes it possible for it RC-WinTrans to interact with the

Translator's Workbench.  You can access a Trados translation memory from within RC-WinTrans to find, get, and save translations.


When the Trados Translator's Workbench is installed on the current machine, RC-WinTrans adds a translation memory (TM) menu (Figure 1) to its menu bar and an additional TM toolbar (Figure 2) with commands relative to the Workbench and the TM.

Function Integration Summary

The integrated translation memory access supports several translation tasks within RC-WinTrans. These tasks are basic functions such as searching for translations, saving translations, and executing a concordance search, as well as extended operations such as the import from Trados and uniform translation check functions.  Furthermore, the TM is integrated into RC-WinTrans just like RC-WinTrans dictionaries.


The following functionality is available in RC-WinTrans X8 for Trados TMs:

Find and get translation(s):  Find and get a translation for a source text(s) needing to be translated.

Save translation(s):  Save a translation(s) to a Trados TM.

Concordance search:  Perform a concordance search in the active TM.

Get all from Trados (auto-translate):  Gets translations from a Trados TM to translate all or a selection of the text resource items in a translation project.

Save all selected to Trados:  Saves a selection (Text Table view) of translated items in the current project to a Trados TM.

Auto-find and auto-save:  RC-WinTrans features automated functions for finding, getting, and saving translations with Trados translation memories.  The actual translation/modification of resources takes place in RC-WinTrans (Translation Edit bar).


NOTE:  RC-WinTrans does not have a command to create a new TM.  To create a new translation memory, activate the Translator's Workbench window (Start/Close Trados Translator's Workbench button/command) and select the "New" command from the "File" menu.


Additional information on the Trados integration can be found in the RC-WinTrans X8 Help.
