Hi,

I have a problem when using Trados 2007 in Word 2007 on a Windows7 plattform. Sometimes Trados gets stuck, especially on bullet points or tables or tables of contents or other sections containing formatting. I wonder if this could be a Windows7 issue, that Trados is not really compatible with Windows7 yet, or that Windows7 is not that stable. My sollution to it has been to cut short the translation and leave the doc without saving. In the end, if a document contains a lot of bullit points or formatting I have to translate it without TRados. Has anyone come across this problem? Do you have a solution to it? Could I solve it by changing certain settings?

Thanks in advance!

Kristina

Has nothing to do with Win7 IMHO Aug 24, 2010

or even with Trados in fact - this is because of the specific of Trados-Word interface.
Switch to TagEditor and your problems are gone.

Try working on draft view Aug 24, 2010

...don't ask me why, but I have problems with bullet points in particular when working on print layout, yet when I switch to draft view no problem at all!

Hope this helps,

Helen

Draft view - thanks Helen Jan 14, 2011

Thanks Helen. I couldn't get Trados to process bullet points in Word 2010 in print layout either. It does work however in any layout in my old version of Word (2002) so I had to reinstall that. I didn't realise that you had to change to draft view, and now I can translate in word 2010 again!
