The complete translation environment for professional translators
SDL Trados Studio is a complete translation environment for editing, reviewing and managing translation projects either offline on the desktop tool or online in the cloud. Studio offers a number of core technologies to support you as you translate – translation memories (TMs) are the key component and other functionality includes termbases for managing terminology and machine translation (MT) to speed up the translation process. In addition to the core components, there are many features to help increase your productivity and ensure your consistency.

SDL Trados Studio 2021 Freelance - Ideal for freelance translators (€695/$845/£595/¥100,000)
Michael Tovbin . Does not rate more than 3 stars. The desktop software itself remains much the same with all of us known Princeton's. The purported have changer Live is a disappointment. If it's half baked, full of bugs, and less than it's promise. First off, you cannot convey your existing projects to online. Second, it is not like you can work off of any device. Third, the naming convention for the folders is not self explanatory. To summarize, a lot of work will be required to make it truly usable.

How easy is it to learn?
Full of bugs, even worse after the first update
Annette Bredewold . Are you kidding me?? I purchased this version in hope to get a more reliable version of Studio than Studio 2019. But I really regret this purchase.
2021 has only some new features, but even more bugs than the 2019 version. To get the integration of world-server-packages, (I had to, because many of my clients are still sending them) cost me countless hours of stress, and even after the integration of the world-package feature it only works sometimes, mostly not. So I have to use the 2019 version for a lot of these packages, where you can wait for this "creating preview"-bug in connection with confirming segments as soon as a package is bigger than 10.000 words. Same issue also in 2021 (if you are lucky, and a world-server package is working at all) - so nothing has changed.
After I installed the update SR1 last week I am not even able to add new clients. Even with such a minor feature the hole program crashes.
With regard to the new features comparing with the features in 2019 I would eveluate the 2021 version as completely pointless. If I deliver such poor work to a client I am not being paid for this.
