Hi, I'm using Studio 2009 for the first time today, and the first issue I've encountered is that I can't get preview to work. I'm translating a simple Word file (2010) I have saved in the same directory as the sdlxliff. This is something I've never been able to do with Excel files and the Trados' tag editior either. Am I missing something simple?

Preview tab Jul 5, 2012

When your document is open for translation do you not have a small grey tab that appears in the top right-hand corner of your screen?

No Jul 5, 2012

I have the preview window opened. It says 'No preview available' and clicking on troubleshooting produces: 'The Word document cannot be previewed.'

Can you export the target file? Jul 5, 2012

Hi Olly,
can you export the target file? If yes, it seems like the Office interoperatibility assemblies have not been installed properly.
This is just a shot in the dark, but have you installed Office prior to Studio, or vice versa?

Exports fine Jul 5, 2012

Yes I can export. I installed Office before Studio.

Click-to-run Jul 5, 2012

Thanks Lisa, I didn't check the forums thoroughly enough. Looks like click-to-run may be the problem.


...and it was! Now lets see what else this Studio can do.
