Is there any way to restore the shortcuts of Trados 2007 Freelance in Microsoft Word 2007 to default shortcuts?

I have previously changed some shortcuts of Trados, but now, they are not helpful for me any more.

1-In Microsoft Word 2007, click on the Office button and click on the Word Options Tab.
2Select Customize in the left Pane. This opens the Customize the Quick Access Toolbar and Keyboard Shortcuts dialog.
3-Click on the Customize button at the bottom of this dialog. This opens the Customize keyboard dialog.
4-Under Categories, select Macros. This displays the available macros in the Marcos list.
5-In the Macros list, select the TW4Win macro that you want to change. The current keyboard shortcut for this macro appears in the Current Keys area.
6-In the Press new Shortcut key area, press the new shortcut you want to assign, preferably unused shortcuts that are easily accessible from the laptop keyboard. Click on the Assign button. Repeat this procedure for all macros you want to 7-use with keyboard shortcuts.

NOTE: The changes you make are saved in the template Normal.dotm by default. This means that updates to the Translator's Workbench template ( and previous versions) will not override your changes. Be sure to make regular backups of to keep your customisations safe.

shortcut for set/close open/get Oct 3, 2009


I tried this procedure and it did not work for me.

When I over over the set/close open/get button I can see that the keyboard shortcut is set to (ctrl+[+])

In the keyboard shortcut assignment section I see

and I set the shortcut to Alt+Num+

Now nothing happens when I press this key combination and I see that the the keyboard shortcut is still set to (ctrl+[+]) when i hover over the button.

Is this something to do with the templates?

Thank you,
