I have updated to Office 2010 because more and more docx documents were problematic to convert to word 2003.
But now, in Word 2010, the Trados 2007 Toolbar to translate directly in Word documents ist gone.

But I have a client who requires this combination: Word (not Tag Editor) and Trados 2007.

Does the Trados 2007 plugin work with 2010 or do I have to downgrade Word again?

thanks, Thomas


I found on SDL troubleshooting section a non 100 % indication how to improvise a solution:

"SDL Trados 2007 Suite toolbar compatibility with Microsoft Office 2010"

It worked, I hope without further system damage, and I have the toolbar now.

Users of a spanisch word 2010 version: please note, that you must copy the two dotm files to the spanish, not to the english startup folder in yaour AppData>Roaming>Microsoft>Word folder.

Thanks to all.
