To cut a long story short, just to solve a technological problem they installed 2007 on my netbook.
I have been working with trados 7.1, and with 2007 I do not know how to open Tag Editor or Excel files.
I have read the manual, but.... or it was not installed correctly or I am dumb.
TIA

Josefina

Start/My Programs/SDL International/SDL Trados 2007 freelance/Trados/Tageditor
does it work?

if you don't see the SDL International folder, it means that something went wrong during installation
let me know

furthermore, right clicking on a ttx or a MS Office file, you must see a menu like "Open with", and under "Open with" you should see Tageditor ...

Unfortunately, I cannot see the icon TagEditor. It is not there.
And I tried opening view> options> kinds of files, but no results.

OK, so try the Windows registry
Start/Add/Remove Programs
and now search for "SDL Trados 2007 freelance"

if you find it here, it must be even on your hard disk, i.e. under:
C:\Programmi\SDL International\T2007_FL\TT
or
C:\Program Files\SDL International\T2007_FL\TT

if you find it on your hard disk, it means that only shotcuts are gone

click again on Start/Add/Remove Programs/SDL Trados 2007 freelance/Change (or may be Repair, I'm not sure as my Win XP is in italian); this way the program will rebuild shortcuts

Well, not everything is lost.
I have found it in both places.
I can see the SDL int. folder and inside it the FI and TT

But you say:
click again on Start/Add/Remove Programs/SDL Trados 2007 freelance/Change (or may be Repair, I'm not sure as my Win XP is in italian); this way the program will rebuild shortcuts
Where should I click repair? Windows control panel has only two options, add/remove. Since the program is still on the hard disk, the only alternative I find is remove, and I do not want that, no?

Hi

I've just send to yoy a screenshot of Add/Remove Programs with Proz option Send a file

you can see 2 buttons for SDL Trados 2007:
Cambia (Change)
and
Rimuovi (Remove)

but if you dont have the Change button, don't worry: the most important thing is that you have the program on your PC
(if you don't have the CD-ROM with the application, that MUST have a Repair option)

so, go to the TT folder and you should find these .exe files:
TagEditor.exe: it is your ghost
TW4Win.exe: it is the Workbench, to use with MS Word
WinAlign.exe: it is the aligning tool
TWC.exe: its is T-Window for Clipboard, a very useful tool to use memories even in e-mails

Now, right click on every one of them and click on "Create Shortcut", then "select-drag-release" a copy of this shortcut in every place you want, for example in the Windows Taskbar, or simply click on "Create Desktop Icon" to have icons on your desktop

finally, you can open the excel or ttx file inside TagEditor in the common Windows mode, i.e. CTRL+O, or simply double clicking on the excel or ttx file
(unless the Windows association between application and file formats is corrupted too)

Claudio, although I can open the excel file, Tageditor apparently does not use the Trados memory.

Launch Workbench... Jan 26, 2010

Just like when you work in Word, you have to launch Trados Workbench...

Of course, I did launch it.
And it did not work, but following Claudio's previous instructions I managed to repair the installation.
And now it works.

Thanks Claudio and Marie Claude.
