Hello, I have Office 2007 and Translator's Workbench 8.2.0.835 running on Windows 7.

They were working fine together (except for the infamous "Trados changing fonts" problem) and suddenly something must have changed, because everytime I open a Word file, the template trados8.dot tries to open for edition (unsuccessfully). I am not willing to edit the template in any way, I just need to work with the Word file. Why does the template (try to) open together? How can I avoid this?

Thanks.

Hi Carmen,

This issue has been discussed ad nauseam - you need Trados8.dtm for Word 2007, Trados8.dot is meant for earlier versions of Word - just delete it in the Word Startup folder and your problem should be fixed

HTH,

Bernard

Thanks a lot, Bernard, but where do I get the dtm template? In my version of Trados I only have the above mentioned one...
