What is ETUG?

The European TRADOS User Group (ETUG) is a forum for users of SDL translation tools, allowing them to meet other users, exchange their experiences with the SDL tools and get to know other users' translation workflows and solutions.

We also intend to use this forum to gather development requests that the users would like to see addressed by SDL. The forum works together with SDL to improve the SDL products in such a way that users benefit the most.

Annual Conference

We hold an annual conference to promote the exchange of information between SDL users. SDL representatives are also present during part of the conference to give users the opportunity to ask questions and obtain information on the newest SDL developments.



All companies or organizations that use SDL translation tools intensively and on a large scale are eligible to become members of the ETUG. As a rule of thumb, this means they should employ server products. Guest speakers are often invited to the annual conference to present new interesting topics that could benefit the ETUG members.

Why Should I Become an ETUG Member?

* Direct contact with SDL product managers
* Early access to SDL product roadmap
* Wish list: Ability to influence SDL developments
* Excellent forum for exchanging ideas and views
* Ability to verify own processes and workflows
* Reduce risk on planned purchases by questioning other users’ experience upfront
* See how others are using or "abusing" SDL tools
* High return on investment in ETUG conferences
