I'm after reinstalling my OS and cannot seem to get the Trados interface working properly in Office. I've got Windows XP SP3 and Trados 2007 Freelance.

I tried adding the Trados template file (via Microsoft Options - Add-inns...) and also enabled macros. Then the Trados tab and the individual symols appeared but it looks all wonky and doesn't actually work.

Apologies if this has been raised before but I couldn't seem to find it.

Thanks in advance

Try another CAT-Tool, seriously.

Hi Maria,
Try to reinstall Trados and Office once again, it could help you.

you added the wrong template, i.e. instead of the correct one, TRADOS8.dotm?

Thanks ever so much, Zoltán! I was pretty sure I had added the correct template but just tried again and here we go!
