Barack Obama. Ramses II. Angelina Jolie. Bart Simpson. What do they all have in common? All are confirmed left handers. Do you count yourself among their illustrious company? If so, April 1st 2014 is a day you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
The life of a left handed person (leftie) is a troubled one. Writing in a spiral notepad or 3 ring binder is a herculean effort, the standard scissors found in your childhood classroom were useless, and did your university have those terrible half-desks? Even the simple ball point pen, a staple of modern society, refuses to work in the hands of a southpaw.
Today, we at SDL are doing our part to make the life of a leftie that little bit easier. It is our great pleasure to announce that SDL Trados Studio 2014 is fully compatible for the sinistral population. This includes full support for left handed keyboards and mice, as well as the following productivity boosting features:
- Position every window wherever you like, left or right…whatever suits you
- Customizable keyboard shortcuts allowing ambidextrous support for every feature
- 3-D printable SDL SmudgeGuard, downloadable from the SDL OpenExchange
This revolutionary release has us all very excited. Massimo Ghislandi, Vice-President of Translation Productivity for SDL, had this to say: “After 30 years of innovating our translation software, we are very pleased to announce that SDL Trados Studio 2014 is fully compatible with the worldwide left-handed population, helping everybody translate faster!”
So don’t be a fool this April 1st, download the SDL Trados Studio 2014 trial for the best user experience on the market.
