Hi,



I would like to know if anyone has installed both Trados and MetaTexis in the same computer, and whether it works ok or would it cause problems.



I am a Trados (5.5 Freelance) user and would like to try MetaTexis - now that it is free for Platinum members - in order to see how it compares with Trados (I have never used any other CAT tool but Trados before).



Do you think I will be ok if I install MetaTexis even if I use Trados most of the time?



Thanks for you help.

Minna

Try asking in the Metatexis mailing list in

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MetaTexis/



You should find there other users and perhaps the Metatexis developers willing to help for any other future problem or queries you may have about this software.

Hi, Minna,



I always use Trados, but I\'ve just tried MetaTexis on two small files and the only problem I had was when I opened each file a small window popped up saying Trados was running (it was not) and did I want to deactivate it and continue using MetaTexis. I clicked on OK and that was that. But that\'s my very limited experience, so I guess it will be two of us subscribing to the MetaTexis users list...

MetaTexis and TRADOS can run in parallel with restrictions Aug 14, 2002

Hi,



MetaTexis and TRADOS can both be installed on a system without causing problems - with one exception: MetaTexis and TRADOS partly use the same shortcuts.



There are two solutions for this problem:



(1) Go to the \"General options\" dialog in MetaTexis and define shortcuts for MetaTexis which are different from all TRADOS shortcuts.



The second possibility is more convenient, though:



(2) (a) De-activate TRADOS temporarily when you work with MetaTexis. MetaTexis will automatically warn you when a MetaTexis document is loaded and TRADOS is still active.



(b) De-activate MetaTexis when you work with TRADOS. You can do this manually via the File menu.



The same is true for Wordfast and MetaTexis.



Hermann
