Translator's Workbench (SDL Trados 2007) crashes every time I try to analyze/clean up/translate one or more files, but it works normally in Ms Word, Tag Editor or for exporing/importing TMs.

I am using Studio 2009 much more often than 2007, but every now and then some client requests unclean Ms Word files and then I use the Workbech.

I have installed the latest patch for Studio 2009 recently.

Any suggestion?

(BTW is there a way to use Studio and get a bilingual MsWord file as it is for ttx files?)

I'd appreciate your help.

Why has nobody replied?? Sep 22, 2011

Seems like a pretty reasonable question. What does cause Trados to crash when analzing perfectly ordinary Word files??

You replay please to as I probably won't find this discussion again.

Analyze still crashes Nov 16, 2011

It would be nice to know if anybody can explain why Workbench anylysis crashes, even after total re-installation of Freelance 2007.

Workbench still crashes Feb 10, 2012

OK, so people think I look silly in prize-winning Rio de Janeiro garb....

Still no offers as to why Workbench needs to crash when trying to analyse Word files ??

Run register.bat and try again to analyze/clean up/translate.

Re-registering worked for me Jan 11, 2013

SDL Knowledge base Article 1855 (" Troubleshooting Crashes in Translator's Workbench") says:

"In most instances, you can rectify this problem by re-registering the SDL Trados applications. To register SDL Trados 2007 please select: Start-> Programs -> SDL International -> SDL Trados 2007 -> Trados -> Register SDL Trados 2007".

In my case (Windows 7), I had to run the registration as Administrator.

Re-registering works! Mar 11, 2013

My Trados workbench suddenly started crashing on cleanup. I tried running the "Register Trados" as an administrator (Windows 7) and it worked like a charm. Thanks!
