Hi everybody,

there's something strange happening with Trados. I had trados 7 freelance, then uninstalled it because I wanted to try Trados 2007 as I upgraded to Word 2007. Then uninstalled it and now I copied and paste a text in Word, from a webpage, and it appeared translated into is it possible, if I do not have any trados version now installed, so no TW and no translation memories??

then I just deselect Hidden text in Word options and the english translation disappeared, leaving the original text I copied form the web...

Do you know why this happens?

This problem could be caused by a corrupt Trados template in Word. Please try the following:

1. Open Word 2007
2. Go to the Office menu
3. Select "Word Options"
4. Select "Add-Ins" from the left-hand navigation pane. You will now see a list of Word Add-ins.
5. At the bottom of this window you will see a "Manage" option, please choose "Word Add-ins" and select "Go"
6. De-select any Multiterm and Trados templates, such as or
7. Press OK to save these changes

Please restart Microsoft Word and try again.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,
