Keyboard shortcut for Get Translation in Trados Workbench & TagEditor

It appears that up to version 6.5 there was no default shortcut for the Get Translation function and that there was no easy way to set it up (How on earth could they have missed it?).

I am informed that this is now feasible with Trados 7 using the shortcut Alt+Shift+Insert.

If you still want to use it if you do not have version 7 then you could try the following:

Trados Translators Workbench

Assign a shortcut yourself in Word (Tools - Customize - Keyboard). The macro you need is tw4winGetTranslation.Main. For details on how to do this read How to change keyboard shortcuts in Trados WorkBench.

Trados TagEditor


You can use a macro recorder like MacroMagic. With Macro magic, you record key strokes (Alt+B and then + G) to achieve the desire result.

Another free macro recorder is AutoHotkey

AutoHotkey is a free, open-source utility for Windows. With it, you can:

—Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
—Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
—Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
—Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
—Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
—Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
—Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
—Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.

Getting started might be easier than you think. Check out the quick-start tutorial.

Other Features

—Change the volume, mute, and other settings of any soundcard.
—Make any window transparent, always-on-top, or alter its shape.
—Use a joystick or keyboard as a mouse.
—Monitor your system. For example, close unwanted windows the moment they appear.
—Retrieve and change the clipboard's contents, including file names copied from an Explorer window.
—Disable or override Windows' own shortcut keys such as Win+E and Win+R.
—Alleviate RSI with substitutes for Alt-Tab (using keys, mouse wheel, or buttons).
—Customize the tray icon menu with your own icon, tooltip, menu items, and submenus.
—Display dialog boxes, tooltips, balloon tips, and popup menus to interact with the user.
—Perform scripted actions in response to system shutdown or logoff.
—Detect how long the user has been idle. For example, run CPU intensive tasks only when the user is away.
—Automate game actions by detecting images and pixel colors (this is intended for legitimate uses such as the alleviation of RSI).
—Read, write, and parse text files more easily than in other languages.
—Perform operation(s) upon a set of files that match a wildcard pattern.
—Work with the registry and INI files.
