Dear colleagues,

This story starts with my recent purchase of a new CPU with Windows 7 on board, to which I mistakenly added Office Home and Students 2010. I quickly discovered that I don't like Office 2010 at all; I much prefer the way my old program, Office 10 (aka Office XP), handles file manipulation and presentation. Worse: Office Home and Students 2010, a "click-to-run" program, is not compatible with my good old Trados 7.0. According to my researches, Windows 7 and Office XP have conflicts. So I'm considering purchasing Office 2003, which a few translators I've consulted say works well with Trados 7.0.

My question: can you confirm that the combination of Windows 7 with Office 2003 and Trados 7.0 is perfectly compatible?

Thanks in advance for any comments and advice.

I'm using Studio 2009 and Office 2010 now, but I used to work with Trados 2007, Office 2003 and Windows 7. I can't say, I never had a problem, you do (sometimes) when using Windows, Office and/or Trados, in their different versions, but they are compatible.

Good luck!

Yes, Office 2003 is OK Aug 23, 2012

Flippy, I am using exactly the same combination: Windows 7 (32-bit), Office 2003 and Trados 7.0. Works like a Swiss watch. I tried Office 2010 and Trados 2009, was totally disgusted with both, and quickly rolled back.
