In certain documents, when running 2007 Translator's Workbench and MS Word 2007, Workbench takes forever (at least 45 seconds to 1 minute) to move from one segment to the next. Some documents are just fine and things run at a normal speed, but some are atrociously slow. I have not been able to determine what is making the difference. Any suggestions as to how I can speed things up?

Reorganize Jul 14, 2008

I've you tried and reorganize your TM (in File Menu)?

Reorganizing helped a little possibly Jul 14, 2008

I tried "reorganizing", but while it helped a little, it's still taking about 30 seconds to open the next segment. Any other ideas out there?

File size Jul 17, 2008

If the size of your file is too large, Workbench will be very slow. You can try to split a big file into many small ones, then Workbench will be faster than before.

Images or icons in the file? Jul 17, 2008

We have experienced this behaviour with files containing images or icons in the text. In the segment before, after and containing an image, Trados's process is very slow.

In any case, my advice is that you use TagEditor, which does not have these problems and is rather neutral whatever the Word file contains.
