Whenver i open a word document for reading(NOT FOR TRANSLATION), when i close it, i get the following message in the end:

Do you want to save the changes to TRADOS

Probably, the above makes sense when i translate in word using TRADOS but i cannot explain why

this message appear in instances completely unrelated to translation.

I just open word 2007 documents for reading and nothing else.

Any ideas?

Trados Template Sep 29, 2011

This has something to do with your Trados template (tradosX.dotm). Maybe you've seen the same question about normal.dotm from time to time. The template is a Word add-in, and it loads whenever you open Word, so you don't need to actually translate anything for something to potentially happen to the template.

Whenever I see this message I just choose not to save any changes to the template and proceed as normal. I'm sure there's probably a more elegant/permanent solution, but I've tried replacing the template with a fresh copy and the problem still crops up from time to time, so that doesn't seem to be the perfect answer.
