Hoever, it is possible to connect to Trados Studio via SDL Language Cloud.

As of March, 2021, Trados Studio 2019 (latest service packs) and 2021 connect directly to Language Cloud and no plugin needed.

Alternatively, there is a plugin available at

which allows you to connect to Language Cloud from your older Trados Studio application.

  • You need TranslationStudio’s SDL Language Cloud connector

  • You need to have a Language Cloud account with an API URL and valid credentials.

Please do not hesitate to contact your SDL account manager to request further information.
