I am using Office 2000 with Windows XP on a Pentium 4 machine. Maybe I should upgrade to Office XP. For defragmentation I always keep my drive in good shape so thats can't be the answer. And I also split large documents but I am just trying to find a simpler way.) Thx again.
It should not slow down that much with a large document. Have you defraged your PC lately? Before I get going with a large document, I always defrag the main drive, and at least once a week. With really large documents it is a good idea to split it into 2 or 3 documents and then combine them at the end before sending it off, still using the same TM of course. It is not Trados that is causing the problem, it is the PC and your word processing program.
