Hello,

I decided to try and install the trial version of Wordfast to give it a try. I hadn't read the manual before installing and I tried to install it after watching the online demo.

My OS is Windows VIsta and Office version is MSOffice 2007. I tried to install and allow the macros etc.

However, the installation doesn't seem to have been successful (I get some kind of message about Visual Basic not being allowed when I try and open Wordfast in Word). I then went back to the manual and realised Word 07 does not seem to be listed as a compatibe program.

I decided to give up my Wordfast trial attempt but an Add Ins toolbar is now replacing the Trados SDL toolbar which seems to be gone altogether from the Word toolbars!!!!!

Even if was going to try Wordfast I definitely want to keep Trados too!

What has happened? Is that normal?

Can anyone please help and tell me how to recover Trados toolbar?

PS: I have tried to see if I can uninstall Wordfast to solve the problem but it doesn't come up in the list of programs I would be able to remove from my computer for some reason.

Many thanks in anticipation for your help.
Corinne

Trados8.dot Oct 23, 2008

Hi!

I know nothing about Wordfast, except that the trial version works on my computer (Vista, Word 2007) alongside with Trados. So it should work.

Did you check if the template Trados8.dot (or Trados.dot) under Word Options - Add-Ins is checked? Maybe it was unchecked during your installation of Wordfast. That has worked for me every time the Trados toolbar has disappeared...

Kind regards
Malin

Thanks a lot Oct 23, 2008

Hi Malin,
That is great, many thanks, I recovered the toolbar thanks to your advice.

I just have to work out how to get Wordfast to work now....if you say that is possible to have both and it is compatible with Vista and 07.
If anyone have suggestions, they will be much appreciated.
Thanks!
Corinne

No that I know... Oct 23, 2008

Good that it worked!

For the other issue, it usually works to copy the error message and google it. There always someone who had that problem before...

Also, maybe this post could be of help:

Hello again Malin,

Thanks again for your time and help and all the best!
