Having read / heard so much about the two, I've tried to install both (Trados 5.5 and Wordfast 3.35x) on my PCs to get the chance to compare.
Wordfast installed perfectly fine in MS Word 2003, but the Trados toolbar/button is no where to be seen. But when I did the same on my notebook (XP) in the reverse order, Trados was there all right, but the Wordfast toolbar wasn't! Is it that the two can't coexist? Or is there a way around this problem?

I use both of them on the same computer... Jun 3, 2005

... without any problem.

Both software could be activated within the Tools > Macros menu of MS-Word. When I want to use one of them, I activate the proper macro beforehand. If nothing appears in the Word window, you can display the tools bar in the Display menu of Word.

Hope it will help.

I do not think you use both at the same time.
For using WF with other Add-Ins check WF Manual for Pandora Box functions.
Set "KeepTemplate=All" active.

I wish I could! With Wordfast being there first, the Trados macros are NOT in the menu....
