Hi,
I have Trados installed on 2 computers, one with Windows Vista and most recently one with Windows 7.

On my Vista computer, I can right-click on an Excel file and select Trados 2009 from the right-click menu that pops up to open the file in Trados. However, on my Windows 7 computer, this option doesn't appear when I right-click on an Excel file within the menu options...

Does anyone know if there is an option within Trados 2009 to enable that shortcut on Windows 7 or was it just a Trados feature for Vista, or maybe there is an issue with the order of installation??
On the Windows 7 computer, I installed Trados after Office, so I'm not sure why it didn't create the shortcut I have on my Vista computer?

I've tried searching around the internet and on the SDL website, but I haven't been able to find any information as to why my two installations of Trados are different in this manner, it is really useful to have this right-click shortcut to open an excel file in Trados.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Carole,

If you really want to open Excel files with Studio 2009 under Win 7, right-click and select Open With, default is Excel, select Other Programs, navigate to Program Files (x86) -> SDL -> SDL Trados Studio, select SDLTradosStudio.exe, uncheck Always open selected files... checkbox and whenever you right-click on an Excel file you'll have the option to open with Excel or Studio 2009 under Open With.

You're welcome.

HTH,

Bernard

Thanks a lot! Yes, much better!

It's true Win 7 works differently from Vista. I had tried browsing the other programs after right-clicking, but I couldn't find the exe file before, so thanks for the link!
And I have now a shortcut on Win7 too.
Thanks!

I have the same problem in two different installations using the same versions of Studio (2014) and Windows (7).
One will have the useful right click menu options and the other one won't....
If I try your suggestion, Studio will simply open, but it will not be ready with the file(s) loaded for translation. I will have to go to the File>Translate Single Document option for example...
Is there any way to fix this properly to have the menu shown in the picture?
