Does anyone know if SDL Trados 2011 runs with Open Office or do I need to buy and install Microsoft Office?

File Types Oct 17, 2012

Hi Manuela,

Open Studio with the Editor View and have a look at files types. You'll see that ODT etc., is supported.

Sorry forgot to mention that you have to go Project Settings -> File Types

HTH,

Bernard

... instead of Microsoft Office.

Hi Manuela,

You can do this but will lose several features (at least these):

  1. no realtime preview
  2. no Microsoft word spell checking (only Hunspell)
  3. no processing of PDF files or RTF files as we use components of Office for this
  4. no processing of Excel 2000-2003 files

So if you don't need these things you'll be fine.

Regards

Paul

This is definitely no big loss. Microsoft spell check is absolutely inferior to Hunspell. At least, for Russian.

I realize the thread is from a couple of days ago, but I ran into the same "problem" today while trying out the software.
Why doesn't Studio 2011 include these elements from the get go, within itself? Is it a Microsoft Office add-on? That would be news to me.
If Microsoft isn't cooperative about this, please ask the guys at the Document Foundation (LibreOffice). They seem to be doing just fine.
