I recently had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Trados 6. I also installed MS Office 2003. However, when now open a word document to translate... it puts -{}- this in the source line instead of giving me a target line underneath. Am I missing something? Do I have to apply ceratin patches?

Hi Marina,
Your TM may be corrupted. This seems to affect multiple-translation TMs.
Export your existing TM into a new TM and try again.
