I am using Word 2003 on Vista and have SDL Trados Freelance (the newest one).
The problem is that the Trados menu which contains Fix document and so on, is missing from the very top menu (File, Edit, View, Insert, Trados etc.), but the toolbar is still there, and Trados is working as such, except that I cannot fix documents once an errors happens or anything. I have tried enabling it via Plugins -Addins in Word.
I have also tried enabling the different toolbars, so it is not that either.

This is the best way to keeping steady the Trados menu on Word's menu bar.

Replace the template... Jul 22, 2008

Hello Anne,

This seems to a be a problem with the template used in Word. We have an article within the SDL knowledge base which should resolve this issue:

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

There are a lot of similar topics here on ProZ - would you have searche for "Trados template", your problem would most probably be solved before you even wrot your post.
