Hi all,

The system:

4 GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo
Vista Premium, all visual enhancements switched off
Office 2007


Trados 2007 is working very slow when opening/closing segments, compared to Trados 2006 on XP, Office 2003 and less powerful hardware. I expected much faster working, and I'm experiencing a 50-percent or worse slowdown. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing the slowdown?

Thanks in advance.

Macros, apparently! Aug 14, 2007

I queried this with Trados support and this was the answer:

"Yes, this is a problem we are aware of and is currently in the hands of the development team. The problem arises from the fact that the VBA macro performance in Word 2007 is much slower than in previous Word releases and is therefore an unfortunate performance issue in Word 2007. As you are already aware the current workaroung is to use the TTX workflow for both DOC and DOCX in Synergy and TagEditor."

So now I only have to deal with the nightmare that is Synergy/TagEditor! After numerous occasions where files translated using TagEditor will not clean up properly (always happens when the project is urgent), I am now a nervous wreck....

....and this awful software costs how much?!!
