I used to run Systran 3 quite happily within Word 2000, where it gave me two buttons, one for setting options and one for translating. The result was usually slightly better than opening Systran and pasting the same text in. Furthermore, I got a progress indicator which you don't get within Systran itself.

However, now I've got Windows XP and Word 2003 something is not quite right somewhere. I haven't got any Systran buttons on the Word button bar, though there is a Systran menu offering the same options. But when I select Options I get a message saying "The macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your macro security settings." I have tried changing the macro security settings to Medium and Low (even though the latter is not recommended) but I still get the same message. Any ideas?

Yes, I saw that but the nearest match is for Office XP under Windows 2000. I'm waiting for Tech Support to reply but thought in the meantime someone might have a bright idea.

Hi! there is work-around for it. Do not take a fresh installation of office 2003, take update from 2000 instead all your plug-ins will go
