Hello,

I obtained Synergy (Trados 2007 suite) when I bought a license for Studio, and need to use Trados 2007 to deliver bilingual ('unclean') Word files to a client.
I have an activation code for SDL Trados 2007, which I entered as needed.

I know how to translate the file in Studio then having it re-translated in Workbench+Word using the TM generated by Studio, and also how to use the Workbench/Word combo (without creating a project) however I'd like to be able to use Synergy directly and create projects there.

- I tried to create a project under Synergy. According to the help files, at this stage you are supposed to have a choice between using TagEditor or MS Word as a default editor. I cannot choose MS Word, the option is greyed. Would anyone not how I can use that option?

- When using Synergy I cannot use MultiTerm 2007. I have the -well-known- error message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". Could it be that the Studio license does not inlcude MultiTerm 2007?


Thank you in advance,

Aude

No MultiTerm 2007 in standard Studio package Sep 13, 2010

So there is no MT 2007 on your system most probably. When you bought Studio, you will not have MT2007 anymore.

For the Synergy question: Go to View, chose Options, change to "File Types" tab and select "Convert to RTF and edit in MS Word".

EDITED due to a numbering error.

Thank you so much Jerzy!

I guess you meant Multiterm 2007 is not included in the Studio package, right?
Does it mean then that I must choose between using Studio (and having access to Multiterm (2009)) and using Synergy/SDL 2007 without Multiterm?
Which would mean in turn that if I wish to generate bilingual Word files directly, then I cannot use Multiterm?
Or is it possible to "connect" Multiterm 2009 to SDL 2007?

Thank you for the tip regarding the 'view' menu, I think I had tried everything but that... perfect!

Connection of MT2009 and Workbench is possible Sep 13, 2010

You can connect and use MT2009 in Workbench, but I really can't tell how that works.
Never tried to use this - I work completly in Studio and do not deliver any bilingual Word files anymore.

Thanks Jerzy -
Actually I do prefer Studio also, but a few clients still request bilingual files...

I must admit though that I found that it's quicker, for me, to translate in Studio (especially since you explained me how to turn on the AS feature!), and then generate a bilingual file in Word with the Studio TM if needed.
Still I'm trying to experiment all options at the moment, it'd have been nice to try Synergy with Multiterm!
