We offer full compatibility in terms of translation memory and bilingual files across Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019.
Although translation memories and bilingual files are compatible across Studio versions from 2009 to 2019, as we continue to add more features, there are potential discrepancies in feature availability, word counts and file types when working in older versions of Studio. Some of the latest features such as upLIFT are only fully available in Studio 2017 and 2019.
SDL Trados Studio 2019 will enable you to open TTX, ITD files and old Trados Word bilingual files, as well as use translation memories from older versions of SDL Trados Studio. It also features support for industry standards such as TMX (for translation memories), TBX (for terminology databases) and also XLIFF (as a file format for translation). Extended file type support is also available via the SDL Appstore for third party formats such as Wordfast.
