Trados keyboard shortcuts do not work anymore in Word

Since recently (i believe it is since i've installed SDL Trados Studio 2011, although i wouldn't bet on that), none of my Trados keyboard shortcuts work anymore in Word (2007) (when using Workbench with Word). I have to select all menu items one by one with the mouse in the SDL Trados menu in Word, which really is annoying. I've tried to repair SDL Trados 2007, but to no avail.
Does anyone have had the same problem and would someone know how to solve this? Thanks.

Actually, i've just found another entry about the same problem (Trados keyboard shortcuts not working). So the problem is solved and the case closed. Thanks.

The reason for Trados keyboard shortcuts not to work is the conflict between Trados shortcuts & Word assigned shortcuts.

Solution that worked with Word 2007:

Assign another shortcut that matched your desire as follows:
Right-click a free space on Word menu bar and select “Customize Quick Access Toolbar…” >> Click “Customize…” button located down>> under “Categories:” select “Macros>> under “Macros:” select “tw4win???" where “???” is the command you need to assign shortcut for.

Locate your cursor on “Press new shortcut key” box and press your desired shortcut key.

Kind regards
