I would like to know if Trados 7.1 is compatible with Office 2007 or if it generates any kind of problem. Thanks.

AFAIR the answer is NO Jan 6, 2010

As far as I remember Trados 7 was not compatible with Office 2007.
At least this was the latest official statement I remember.

Jerzy remembers correctly Jan 6, 2010

Only Trados 2007 (builds 8.xxx) are compatible with Office 2007. Previous versions didn't include the Trados8.dotm template for Word to interact with Translator's Workbench.

I just installed Trados 7 with Office 2007, and I managed to find and install the dotm file (Trados7) so that it should be possible to interact with Word. I have not had the chance to test it yet, but the flagman and everything is there (look under some tab like 'Additional tools' or something like that.

I will get back to you whether or not it actually works.

Trados8.dot is not the problem Jan 6, 2010

But you do not have Trados8.dotm - and this is the problem.
AFAIK Trados8.dot will not work in Word 2007. It will load with no problem, but the macros inside are incompatible and you will end up with no function or error messages.
Trados8.dotm will not work with Trados 7 either - so I'm afraid you will have to upgrade Trados.

What do you mean by Trados8.dotm?
What is the difference between trados8.dot and Trados8.dotm?
what Trados version should I use?

dotm are templates for Word 2007 Jan 6, 2010

while dot are templates for Word 2003 and older.
This looks only like a simple change in the file name, but is in fact a completly new format.
You would need Trados 2007 or newer, what now measn buying SDL Trados 2009 Studio, which includes Trados 2007.

A little confused, though Jan 6, 2010

The template I copy/pasted to the STARTUP folder in Windows was called Trados7, but I guess this would be the same thing?

So you're saying that it will show all the Trados buttons in word, but actually it will not work?

Trados7.dot Jan 6, 2010

Sorry, you are right of course, the corresponding template for Trados 7 ist Trados7.dot.

And indeed it will show in Word 2007, but most certainly will remain without function.
