Dear all,

I have installed Trados 2007 (Freelance, build 835) on my virtual Parallels Desktop on Mac (Windows XP). So far so good - the Workbench has found the right TMs, Tag Editor works with my PowerPoint version (2002) so I know I've done something right - but I can't get Word to work with the Workbench.

I copied the trados8.dotm template into the Word Startup folder, told Word to use that as an add-in, but as soon as I open a segment in Word, Word crashes. I suspect this is a template problem but simply cannot work out what I am doing wrong. Can anyone help?

TIA
Karin

For Word 2002 you need Trados8.dot, not Trados8.dotm, Sep 27, 2010

... templates with the *.dotm extension are for Office 2007 or higher.

File extension? Sep 27, 2010

So all I need to do is to change the extension from .dotm to .dot? I now have trados8.dot, and Word still crashes.

Do not change the extension, use the .DOT version Sep 29, 2010

You should *not* chnage the extension, as the .DOT and .DOTM files are not the same.

You should simply use the .DOT file instead of the .DOTM, because .DOTM is only for Office 2007 and upwards.
