I have just installed both Trados Suite 2007 and Trados Studio 2009 on my new Windows 7 (64-bit) computer. Even though the whole new "reactivation step" that is required when you switch between 2007 and 2009 is extremely annoying, things seemed to be working fine.

Until I tried to use Multiterm Convert 2007, that is. Suddenly the 3rd screen (Conversion Options) only says:

Conversion o MultiTerm XML format
* MuliTerm 5 format
* Olif XML format

All the remaining options are non-existent, ie the bullet point to select them works and you can click on them, but the text is missing so I don't know whether they are just unavailable or if there is something wrong with the installation. And since I can't see which one is which, I can't proceed.

Most of the time Iwant to convert Excel or spreadsheet formats, so I just can't use Multiterm Convert 2007! This must be a software/installation problem but SDL's knowledge base doesn't seem to have any reference to it.

Any suggestions (other than having to switch and use MT Convert 2009 to convert, and then switch back to 2007 to import and use MT...)?
