Term status field created in Multiterm 7 not displayed in TRADOS Workbench version 7?

Hi all,

I received a Multiterm term base from a client (created in Multiterm 7) who also entered terms which should not be used, setting them to term status FORBIDDEN.
On my computer with Multiterm 8 and TRADOS 8.2, I can see the term status both in Multiterm AND in TRADOS workbench when I open a segment containing a term which exists in the term base.
However, on my colleague's computer with Multiterm and TRADOS workbench 7 installed, the term status is NOT displayed in the workbench when he opens the same segment. It is really important to see the status because otherwise you might choose the first term appearing without knowing whether it was set to status FORBIDDEN or ALLOWED.
Now I'd like to know whether this issue is related to specific settings or occurs due to the different versions, maybe a new feature of TRADOS workbench 8?

Many thanks for your answers!!!!!
