Does anybody have any ideas how to solve this Trados problem?
I have used Trados 5.5 and Word 97 for two years on this Windows 2000 machine. Basically no problems (except for the usual bug or two...).
One of my main clients has Word 2002 so I decided to upgrade. Unfortunately, now I can't get Trados 5.5 to work with the new version of Word.
I thought it was a problem with Word 2002 but after one hour on the phone with Microsoft Support I determined that removing the trados5.dot add-in from Word would solve the problem. Otherwise stated, Trados is making Word freeze.
What happens is that once I get a Word file open, I can't type more than a couple of characters before Word locks up. Sometimes one character, sometimes more, but I never get far.
Any ideas or similar experiences?
