Hi all,

I would like to know if Trados (any version) is compatible with LibreOffice (former OpenOffice), the open source alternative for MS Office?

I would like to build up a TM, but I would like to work with LibreOffice package instead.

Thanks in advance,

Soraya.

Yes Feb 12, 2011

Yes. I can handle *.idt files etc. in Trados 2009 and created TMs successfully.

Just a little confused..! Feb 12, 2011

Hi Soraya,

What do you mean exactly when you say you want to work with Libre Offfice? Do you just want to translate material generated in Libre Office or are you expecting the old Trados Toolbars to be available in Libre Offfice?

Personally I have not experience with this product so I'm not sure what the answer is to either of these questions.

If Soonthon has satisfactorily answered your question that's great, but I'm curious to know more?

Thanks

Paul

I don't understand the answer, Soonthon. LibreOffice doesn't have files with an ITD file extension, does it?

Maybe he meant .odt files?

In any case, Libre Office and oo.org can save files to either .doc or .docx format fine and can be used in Tag Editor. My experience is only with Trados 2007. Don't own 2009.

.odt Feb 12, 2011

Hi!

thanks Samuel, Paul and Rick,

well, Paul, let me explain: I have a huge file of content (it is actually my thesis) almost finished, so my 'experiment' would not be for a client or professional service but for myself. I have switched to Libre Office, although I do have MS Office 2003 still installed in my PC.

I have only SDLX. I have a new laptop (windows 7) now and I am not planning to purchase full MS Office, since I am pretty satisfied with Libre Office and I do have a Lite Package of MS pre-installed (only word and excel).

I was wonder if I could use my .odt file directly or even integrate Trados to my Libre Office text editor, so I could build up a Term Base.

I am not that experient with Trados and I was curious to know it I could have it integrated with Libre Office suite.

does it make sense?

best,

Soraya.

If you mean Trados Workbench, it won't integrate into LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org (or anything else except for Microsoft Word). Trados TagEditor is supposed to handle ODT files, but I can't confirm.

Hi Soraya,

You can probably translate your odt files in Studio (assuming are the same as that from Open Office), but you won't be able to integrate the Trados Toolbar into Libre Office.

Regards

Paul
