I encountered a problem when I tried to configure SDL Trados QA Checker settings under TagEditor. This is what happened:

I lauched TagEditor and then clicked Tools -> Plug-ins. Then I checked the box for "SDL Trados QA Checker" and then clicked "Properties" in order to enter the window for setting related settings. Interestingly I found all the text in this window was invisible. The only things I could see were merely icons.

Could anyone tell me where went wrong? Below is my software/system configurations:

1. Windows XP Tablet Traditional Chinese
2. SDL Trados 2006/SDL Trados 2007 installed in the same computer.

XP Tablet Apr 5, 2008

Hi James,
the cause of your problem could be the XP Tablet Edition, as this OS is not supported by Trados. On the other hand, I used to have the same problem with Trados 2006 (build 756).
If you are using Trados 2007 SP 2 (build 835), why not use QA Checker 2? It is far more accurate and provides many more setup options.

Too many Tradoses ;) Apr 6, 2008


Could you try re-registering Trados 2007 and checking the QA Checker properties in TagEditor 2007? I guess this issue is related to two Trados versions on your machine (I have the same problem on my desktop in the office).

I can view it in SDL Trados 2007 Apr 17, 2008

I registered 2007 and ran QA verifier. Looks like the text was there with 2007.
