I wish to run/use Wordfast and Trados (outsourcers' preference!) on the same drive.
Is it possible?

Why not Oct 3, 2007

You put both and into the Startup-folder of Word and select them under Tools>Templates & Add-ins.
Then you can activate and deactivate the correspondent toolbars, so that either Trados or Wf toolbar is visible.
For Trados you have to run Wordbench. Wordfast does not need any external programs.

Yes Oct 3, 2007

Yes it's possible, I even have them both in Word. When I start WF, Trados automatically disappears. No need to do anything special just start translating with on of them and it works.
