Incompatibility between Trados 7.0 Freelance and Word 2007?

I am an inexperienced Trados user and to be honest I try to avoid using it, but a new client is insisting upon it.

Having read some of the posts on this forum I suspect my problems are caused by incompatibility, but if possible I would like some confirmation.

I have Windows 7, Word 2007 and Trados 7.0 Freelance.

The first problem:
A client sent me a .ttx document which I manage to open in Tag Editor (never used it before). However Tag Editor immediately freezes and I cannot do anything with it...not even close it.

The second problem:
I have a .doc Word document created in Word 2003 which I open in Word 2007. I followed the help on this forum to successfully install the Workbench Toolbar on my Word 2007, but clicking on the Open/Get button produces error 33353: End of paragraph not found.

My suspicion is that both these problems are caused by the incompatibility of Word 2007 and Trados 7.0 Freelance.

What advice would you give me? (I am hoping that purchasing the upgrade is not the only solution as like I said before, I am a very infrequent and inexperienced user).

Many thanks

Trados 7 Freelance is not compatible with Word 2007. You will have to either set up Word 2003 or buy Trados 2007.

... or you can use wordfast.dot, which is compatible with all Word versions from 97 to 2010.

All you need is... Dec 30, 2011

MS Office 2003 and the "Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office System". Both together are cheaper than SDL Trados last version.

Thanks. Dec 30, 2011

Thanks for the replies.

Unfortunately I decided to just fork out for the upgrade before I saw your cheaper alternatives as I need to get this thing working ASAP!
