Trados Studio 2011 - pop up about Word

Hello,

Last week I installed the upgrade for Trados Studio 2011 (from Studio 2009). I have Windows 7 Microsoft Office 2010.

Among other things, I set the Spanish spellchecker to be the one used by Microsoft Word (rather than Hunspell). I don't know if this is important or not to my issue, but I mention it just in case.

Each time I open Trados, I get a pop-up window which says "Word no puede guardar este archivo porque está abierto en otro lugar - C\Program Files (x86)... MetaTexis.dot) which in rough translation would be "Word cannot save this file because it is open in another location: C\Program Files(x86)... MetaTexis.dot".

This happens even if I have no Word files open at all.

I do not want to uninstall MetaTexis.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated. Please note, however, that I am not a computer expert.

Thanks in advance!

Lucía

Try uninstalling Jul 7, 2013

I've never use MetaTexis but from what you describe it might be the cause to your problem. Try uninstalling it and see if the problem is solved. I think since Trados use word for previewing your translation, and metatexis runs in Word, they might conflict with each other (like two babies eating the same cake).

I know you dont want to uninstall metatexis but you have to try to know.icon_biggrin.gif

Hope this helps.

OK, I'll try Jul 7, 2013

Dear Châu,

Thanks for your opinion and suggestion.

Yes, I'll probably have to try that to see what happens. I'll let you know.

Best wishes,

Lucía

Problem solved Jul 7, 2013

In the MetaTexis users forum on Yahoo I received a reply from Hermann Bruns, the creator of MetaTexis, who explained the following:

"You get this message probably, because TRADOS is calling up the Word
application somehow (maybe hidden), and because MetaTexis is integrated in
Word, it is also called up.

But the issue is not critical, it is only annoying. The fact Word cannot
save the MetaTexis.dot is no issue, at all. Just click Cancel or OK, and you
are fine.

You might even be able to get rid of the message by install the beta version
of a completely new MetaTexis version that is based on a different
development environment."

So I uninstalled MetaTexis, installed the new version to which he provided a link, and now both programs are working smoothly.
