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.

...Flippy

yes Aug 22, 2012

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.
