Hello, I'm experiencing problems with using Trados Freelance 2007 and MS Word 2007 home and student edition. I do not get the Trados button. Has anyone had the same experience? I think that the cause might be that this Office edition is for non-commercial use. Please your help in this?

This has been discussed before... Apr 8, 2008

...and the answer is that for the time being, Trados 2007 and Word 2007 are not compatible.

really? from this page: http://www.translationzone.com/en/products/sdltrados2007/technicaloverview/, it says that trados 2k7 is compatible with office 2k7 and "Continued support for using Word an as alternate translation editor for Word documents".
as i don't use trados 2k7, i can't confirm it first hand though.

you can always use tageditor, which i think is superior than using workbench + word.

They are compatible Apr 9, 2008

I use trados 2007 SP2 and word 2007 on windows xp professional.

There is no Trados button but if trados 2007 is installed you will find two new menus on the right hand side of the Word 2007 menu bar "SDL Trados" and "MultiTerm". If you open these menus you will see the normal trados menu.

thanks Apr 9, 2008

Thanks everybody for your replies. I managed to get a version of office 2003 which I installed on my laptop. For the moment I can operate again legally, I will certainly have a look at the possibilities mentioned about Trados 2007 and SP2 and Word 2007.

Thanks again.

Student Edition Apr 23, 2008

I was told that Student Edition does not work with Trados.

The explanation is that Student Edition is not intended for commercial use/earning.

Don't shoot the messenger.

Kind regards,
PICOW

I have the WINDOWS XP operating system with Service Pack 3 and TRADOS 2007 with SP2 (Build 835). With Office XP it worked fine but I recently upgraded to Office 2007 and now I see that Trados is not compatible with WORD 2007. On calling the SDL support team, I was told that Microsoft is working towards resolving this issue and asked me not to use Trados with WORD 2007 until Microsoft makes the the next service pack for office 2007 available for download.

I do see the trdos toolbar in the ADD-INS tab but the buttons simply dont work the way they did with office XP.
May I request you to let me know what you did to make them work normally??

Thanks in advance for your help
