We're upgrading our IT at the office and we're not sure if we shoudl get Office 2007 or stay with 2003. Will the new MS Office for 2007 run our Trados 6.5 Freelance and Wordfast? Is 2007 any good yet or shoudl we avoid it at this point?

Office 2007 is only available in beta for the time being and Office 2003 really requires Trados 7.x (I use it happily with WB 7.5).

Attempts to use Office 2007 beta with Trados 7.5 seem to have run into problems. Presumably, Trados will be releasing a new version of WB that is compatible with this new Office.

I'm waiting to see what happens because I have no problems with my current set up (Office 2003 + Trados 7.5).

I have no info on Wordfast, I'm afraid.

FWIW

I've been using Trados 6 (and currently 6.5) for several years without problems.
