About 2 weeks ago I bought Trados Studio that comes with Trados 2007. When I installed it I specified only the English to Spanish combination figuring out that I could set another combination later on. When I talk to someone more experienced than me, he told me that I should put all the languages I am going to use from the beginning. He sent me an article that explain how to install it. However, in order to set all the languages I have to run the Wizard during installation. The question is: How can I run the Wizard without having to installed it again?

Thank you in advance,

Argee

a) Make a backup of the registry

b) Try to hack the registry with the language numbers you need as it is explained by means of this thread

Trados basically does not allow to modify the select languages, if you do not reinstall it from scratch. To hack the windows registry, you have to go into Windows to Init > Run, then type regedit in the textbox and to press the Accept button.

The windows registry editor will appear and you will see a directory tree.

Open the subtree HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Open the subtree SOFTWARE

Then, you will have to search manually another subtree that contains the word Trados, similar to this one:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \\SOFTWARE \\Wow6432Node \\TRADOS \\Shared \\IDNG

or this one:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \\SOFTWARE \\TRADOS \\Shared \\IDNG

and a key similar to this:

{D7020440-18AB-11D0-B16A-005D534D4F51}

The last numbers (in hexadecimal format) represent the installed languages.
For example, in the last numbers in hexadecimal format {D7020440-18AB-11D0-B16A-00*5D53524784*} the languages would be:

84 = not used
47 = Dutch
52 = Danish
53 = German
D5 = English

Replacing one of this hexadecimal number with other of the list will change the existing language into that one of the list. Modifying the windows registry is a delicate operation. Therefore, I advise you to do it with the help of a person turned in computer science. If you are not able to get such help the easiest and surest thing will be to reinstall Trados from scratch.

Thank you, Pablo. Feb 17, 2010

I sure enough will try installing Trados from scratch. My only concern is if Trados will allow such thing or will be "thinking" that I am installing it in another computer, since I paid for only one computer. What do you think about it?

I suppose that if you are installing it to the same computer, it shouldn't give you any problem. But, really I do not know. As you own a legal copy, maybe it is worth you take a short call to your provider to ask him about.

There is a licence return "feature" in Studio which would be good to use before you uninstall and reinstall.

1. Return your licence
hELP>ABOUT>LICENCE MANAGER>VIEW ACTIVATED LICENCES>RETURN LICENCE
2. uninstall,
3. re-install choosing the languages you want
4. activate your licence

Thank you both of you for your time. Feb 18, 2010

Dear Emma,
I will try this and will let you know how it went.
Last night I contacted SDL, and although they didn't provide details, they said:

Please note-

The languages must be set when installing the software.
This cannot be done after the software has been installed.
You will need to complete a new fresh reinstall.

Please do not forget to return the license BEFORE deleting the software.

So, I will follow your advise,

Thank you again,

argee
