I have recently bought a new computer with Vista and word 2007. I am also buying the new SDL trados suite as part of the current TGB on Proz. I now have a file to translate with trados, so I have installed my old Trados 6.5 on it. Installation is successful, workbench is ready, BUT I cannot see the Workbench toolbar in Word and as a result I cannot open and get my segments as I would do normally. Does someone know the reason why I can't see it? Thank you for your help.

Trados 6.5 not supported Feb 14, 2009

Hi Nathalie, Trados 6.5 is not supported to run under Word 2007. Only versions 8.xx are.
You will have to install Office 2003 or earlier.

Yes, that's a natural solution.

The TagEditor suggestion is a fair one; the only problem is that you need Trados 7.1 and above to translate Word documents in TE

Hi,

Are you sure Trados 6.5 is compatible with Vista if you install Office 2003?

Thanks!

Elizabeth

No Feb 16, 2009

No, I'm sure it will NOT. Trados 6.5 is already a very outdated version and Vista is a relatively new OS. In other words, Trados 6.5 may be working under Vista, but will most probably not run flawlessly. Not even the latest versions do...
