Hi,
Unfortunately I have to say goodbye to my old computer and buy a new one.

I run Trados 2007 Suite and MS Office 7 on Win Vista

My question before I buy is, will my present Trados and Office programs run on a 64-bit computer with Win 7 HP???

I would also like to know which office programs the different Trados versions run with?

Thanks in advance.
Birgit

It will run in 32 bit mode Aug 16, 2011

Just like many other programs without a dedicated 64 bit version - no problem here.

Best Regards
Stanislaw

Yes, except for Multiterm Aug 16, 2011

Multiterm will not run on a 64bit Windows 7 platform. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate you can still install the Trados Suite to the Virtual XP where Multiterm shall work properly.

MT on 64-bit W7 Aug 16, 2011

Hi,

This is incorrect:

Multiterm will not run on a 64bit Windows 7 platform. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate you can still install the Trados Suite to the Virtual XP where Multiterm shall work properly.


You can run MT 2009 with SDL Trados 2007 Suite (in fact you be better to do this anyway than to use MT 2007) and this installs without any problems on W7 64-bit.

Regards

Paul

You are right Aug 16, 2011

Hi Paul,

You are right. I've mistaken the Suite for Trados 2007 Freelance.

Still confused Aug 17, 2011

Hi,
Thanks for your answers so far, though I'm still a bit confused.

Stanislav: You write that I can run Trados 2007 in 32 bit mode. Does that mean that it doesn't run on an 64 bit pc, and that I can change a 64 bit computer to run in 32 bit mode??

And could the rest of you please be a bit more specific with the Multiterm information. Does it mean that Multiterm7 doesn't run on a 64 bit pc at all?

And what is all this talking about Multiterm 9, that I don't have? Is it free?

As I said my new pc will be installed with Win 7 HP and NOT Professional or Ultimate.

And then there are still the MS office issues. As I understand it Trados 9 requires MS office 2010, What does Trados 11 require?

Supported versions Aug 17, 2011

Hi Birgit,

SDL Trados 2007 Suite, SDL Trados Studio 2009, SDL Trados Studio 2011, SDL MultiTerm 2009 and SDL MultiTerm 2011 are all supported on W7 64-bit machines.

I think that what Stanislav means is that the application itself is a 32-bit application so it won't take full advantage of the resources available for a 64-bit application. This is actually very common for many software applications and you do not have to do anything special to use this software on a 64-bit machine. I am running W7 64-bit and have all the SDL applications running on there (less the really old ones of course).

On the Office version; Office 2010 is not required. The minimum recommended version would be Office 2003 SP3 with the Office 2007 compatibility pack installed. So anything between that version and Office 2010 will be fine.

You should note however that if you want to use Workbench in SDL Trados 2007 Suite with Office 2010 then you should only install the 32-bit version of Office 2010 (you should have an option when you install this). If you don't want to translate in Word using the old Trados toolbar then this is not necessary.

One more thing... I took the liberty of checking your account (at least I think it was yours) and you don't seem to have SDL Trados 2007 Suite. You are running SDL Trados 2007. Please drop me an email at pfilkin@sdl.com and we can make sure we fully understand what you are running and what the best advice will be for you.

Quite a lot of information in there Birgit, but I hope it's clear?

Regards

Paul

No... Aug 17, 2011

... I don't think you have SDL Trados 2007 Suite Birgit. There is a difference and all of the above including your original title refers to the Suite version and not plain SDL Trados 2007.

Regards

Paul

I upgraded Aug 17, 2011

to order no. 159363 SDL Trados 2007 Suite Freelance in Nov. 2008 - didn't notice this when I first took a look at my orders.

So what's the difference? Can I still run on 64 bit with W7 HP?

You're right.. Aug 17, 2011

Hi Birgit,

You are correct. I forgot we didn't change the license name with this upgrade so you have Suite but the license says otherwise.

So, all of the above applies apart from MultiTerm. To get MultiTerm 2009 you would need to upgrade to SDL Trados 2009... you would get to keep Suite so nothing is lost.

However, if you choose not to do this then there is a good workaround for MultiTerm 2007 users who wish to take a W7 64-bit machine somewhere on this forum... in fact I found it:

http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/123305-how_to_install_multiterm_2007_on_vista_64_howto.html

Seems to work for W7 too.

Regards

Paul

As Paul stated in his list of supported products, all SDL SW including Trados 2007 Freelance runs on 64 OSes, thus also on Windows 8 and 8.1.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that this product is not supported anymore, which means that if you run into a problem, you will not get any help from SDL.
