Access the SDK

The Software Development Kit (SDK) has been designed to enable you to fully interact with other developers to make the most of the product APIs. The SDK allows you to:

  • Share your experience, ask questions and contribute to the documentation by leaving comments directly on documentation pages
  • Use the 'Community' functionality of the SDK to add code samples, how-to guides or any other useful information directly to the SDK
  • Access the API documentation offline via the zip package

Use the Developer Community Forum

The SDL AppStore Developer Community Forum provides a platform to interact with fellow developer enthusiasts and is the place to go to if you have any SDK questions. You can use the community forum to:

  • Keep up to date with new additions to the API
  • Discuss app ideas
  • Ask questions about the API and how to use it
  • Add your app for beta testing.

Submitting an app to the store

You can add your app to the SDL AppStore to be downloaded by SDL language technology users. To do this you need to have an active SDL Trados Studio license and sign up to the Developer Program. To sign up, you need to login to your SDL Account and go to 'Apps' which can be found in the top menu, then to 'Developers'. You will find the 'Sign Up' button on this page.

Once you have been accepted into the program you can submit your app by going to the 'Developers' section and click the ‘Submit New App’ button. You will be taken to a form where you need to provide the app information.

Publishing and updating apps

When your app has been submitted it is subject to our security and functional review process. Once the app has been approved we will contact you to let you know that is being published to the store. When you would like to update your app you can do this by visiting your SDL Account and then ‘Apps’. At the bottom of the ‘Apps’ page you will find ‘My Submitted Apps’ where you will see an option called ‘Submit new version’.
