We are constantly reviewing and improving our products. We release enhancements and fixes to resolve customer issues as and when required. This article lists the enhancements and fixes for SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 to date. Hotfixes are bundled into service releases or cumulative update patches that are installed automatically using the AutoUpdate functionality in SDL Trados Studio.
For information on all hotfixes and enhancements included in the cumulative updates for SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1, see the following list.
Cumulative Update 15 for SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 (Build 14.1.10015.44945, Released on 18 December 2018)
SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 Cumulative Update 15 (CU15) adds the same TM enhancements that were introduced in Trados Studio 2019 SR1.
NOTE: SDL recommends that, once the TMs are upgraded, all users in the supply chain use the same SDL Trados Studio version upgraded to the latest CU. This means that all users should upgrade to SDL Trados Studio 2017 CU15. This will ensure that all users benefit from the context match and fuzzy match enhancements, as well as an overall reliability when changing recognizer settings. If an SDL Trados Studio 2017 or 2019 user remains on an older version and receives newer TMs, leverage issues will occur.
Note: Cumulative Update 15 was originally released with the build number 14.1.10015.44620 on 12 December 2018. That version of CU15 was replaced with the updated build number 44945 as described in this article. There are no differences between these two versions of CU15 except for a hotfix in the installation program that caused the error "Service 'SDL Customer Feeback Service' (Sdl.ProductTelemetrics.v1) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services." This issue typically occurred on PCs that had both SDL Trados Studio 2015 and 2017 installed side-by-side and has now been fixed (CRQ-12733). Users that installed CU15 successfully on or after 12 December will not get the new build 44945 as the software is identical. Any future cumulative update will then bring both groups of users up-to-date to the same build number again.
Cumulative Update 14 for SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 (Build 14.1.10014.38031, Released on 10 October 2018)
SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 Cumulative Update 14 (CU14) addresses an issue with saving target for IDML file types while the IDML Failed to save target content: Method not found error is thrown.
Cumulative Update 13 for SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 (Build 14.1.10013.37703, Released on 3 October 2018)Important note: With this cumulative update, we have moved away from the previous approach of applying patches (using a Microsoft Patch file - .msp) and started using a full installer (.exe files installing several Microsoft Installer files - .msi). With this method, we fully replace an existing installation rather than patch it. The installer will be downloaded via the AutoUpdate feature as before, so nothing changes from that perspective. Once fully downloaded, the installer (.exe) will launch and update your Trados Studio 2019 installation with the fixes and enhancements listed below. This will take roughly the same time as installing Trados Studio from scratch. For more information on the AutoUpdate process, see Downloading and Installing Cumulative Updates below.
This also means that you will not be able to uninstall a CU update as before. To go back to a previous version, you need to uninstall the whole application and then use a full installer.

These file types no longer require Microsoft Office to be installed for converting to translatable format, for instance for converting legacy Microsoft Excel XLS files. The old Rich Text Format (RTF v 184.108.40.206) file type is now hidden. SDL advises that you move your projects to using the new file types as the older ones will gradually be discontinued.
