Hi everybody,
working in Trados 8 I am in word 2008 and can not click my Trados tab. I already did what Word help recommends, meaning resetting the template > macro setting. However, I keep getting this error code and have to hit ctrl > alt > delete to get out of word.

Any ideas?????
Thanks a bunch

I don't know how Word 2008 works (I didn't even know it existed) but I guess you just need to copy the Trados template in the Word templates folder. You can find Trados' templates here: C:\Program Files\SDL International\T2007_FL\TT\Templates

Hope that helped.

Trados Workbench Sep 20, 2008

1. You must start Trados Workbench before clicking Trados tab in Word.
2. If Trados tab is not shown in Word, open Word > View > Tool bars > [Select trados]
3. If Trados template is lost, do as suggested by Caludia.
4. If you still have trouble, check for possible conflicts of Trados and Acrobat PDF tabs [It is frequent!]
