Trados buttons disaapered!
Thread poster: humbird

I use SDL Trados 2007.
This morning, like any other work-a-day, I opened TM (Workbench, that is) and Word file I am to work on. Then I noticed all these buttons ("open/get", "open next" .... that stuff) are not there!
In its stead, there is a small word "wordfast" at the end of "File", "Edit" "Tool" etc. line. This supposed to say "Trados".

I downloaded Wordfast trial version but never mobilied (used). It appears Wordfast took over my CAT function. I don't know how it could have happened, nor what I did to cause this.
Trados working fine when I shut cown my machine last night.

Any help is greatly appreciatedicon_confused.gif

Yes, Viola! Thank you Louisa,

Little knowledge goes a long way, ideed.
However, I am still puzzled what was the cause to this to occur.
