Hi all,

I've just migrated to Mac, and I'm quite happy with it.

I've spent the day installing VM ware, Windows 7 and Trados 2007 and everything went just fine. But now that I'm testing the software, I found out that the keyboaord shortcuts for Trados don't work on a Mac keyboard!!

Would anyone know how to 'translate' for example shift + insert for copying the source into the target?

Thanks a million for your help!

Hi Ingeborg,

Keyboard shortcuts for Trados are quite different on a Mac, indeed. I found an earlier post (though on Tageditor) that you might find helpful.

I'm using some of these shortcuts myself (MacBook Pro), but had to invent some too. I'm sure you'll find your own wayicon_wink.gif

Good luck and congratulations on you Mac!

Thank you guys for helping me out over the weekend!

Since I'm working mostly on my iMac, I opted for the most 'lazy' option and I just plugged in an old Windows keyboard. It just works.

For my MacBook, I printed the shortcuts Monika suggested, but I first need to find the courage to prepare my macbook for Trados as well ...icon_wink.gif

Thanks again,
