Hi Alexandra Feb 22, 2011

Could you please clarify, what exactly are you looking for? Normal. dot for Word? or the .dotm file(s) for Trados?

Assuming that you are looking for normal.dot, you should look for it in the following location:

C:\USERS\[Your username]\APPDATA\ROAMING\MICROSOFT\TEMPLATES

Please note that "MICROSOFT" is a hidden folder

HTH,
Natalia

I aready have but it seems that the file is placed elsewhere. But I know I have it and that word "uses" it since it asks me if I want to save changes into it.

here is how to find notmal.dotm location:

Office Button ->
Word Options ->
Advanced tab ->
Scroll down to 'General' section ->
File Locations ... ->
Click 'User Templates' ->
Modify ...

Your templates including Normal.dotm should be in that location. (Only folders are visible in the 'Modify' dialog box but you can use Winows Explorer to navigate to your templates folder and view files). Make sure you click Cancel when closing the dialog so you don't change your templates location.
