SDL AppStore

The app store and development hub of SDL

About SDL AppStore

SDL AppStore is the language industry’s first app store, allowing users of SDL software - such as SDL Trados Studio - to download apps which customize and extend functionality. Downloading an app is easy. Just click on the download button, sign into your SDL Account and follow the installer instructions, it's as simple as that.

Experienced developers can access our Software Development Kit (SDK) through the Developer Program to build apps for internal use or to add to the SDL AppStore.


For translators, reviewers and project managers

SDL AppStore is an online hub where you will find plug-ins or apps to extend the functionality of your SDL software. All of the apps available to download have been designed to enable you to get things done faster and with less effort. Many of the apps are free to download and each app comes with a full description and instructions on how to use it.

The apps help with a range of translation processes including:

  • Handling different file types
  • Improving the efficiency of your analysis process
  • Reducing and automating project management tasks
  • Preparing work for other translators and reviewers
  • Accessing terminology and dictionary resources.

For developers and technology partners

SDL AppStore provides a platform for third party developers to create plug-ins or apps for SDL technology users, which incorporates 225,000 active SDL software licences around the world.

By joining the Developer Program you are given free access to SDL software APIs and associated SDKs. You also get access to the SDL AppStore Developer Community where you can submit apps for beta testing and communicate with fellow developers.

By building apps for SDL AppStore you can showcase your development talents and gain international exposure to freelance translators, language service providers and corporations.
