- Translation memory fields: labeling translation units with client names, project numbers etc.

- File type settings: defining what needs to be translated, translating partially translated Excel files, converting tables to TM, adding QuickInsert items, translating additional file types etc.

- Auto-propagation: fine-tuning for efficient and safe use

- AutoSuggest: sources and settings

- Verification tools: find inconsistent translations, spacing errors, tag errors etc.

- OpenExchange apps: what are they and where can you get them

- Termbases: converting glossaries from Excel format to MultiTerm termbases for use with Trados Studio

- Project preparation and batch tasks: file analyses, pre-translating files and locking 100% matches, changing segmentation rules, attaching specific translation memories to a project

- Studio project packages: opening project packages and creating return packages
