I'm working on Trados Studio 2011 (I'm still new to this tool) and when I try to preview my translation, I get an error message saying that Word 2007 or 2010 is required to preview .docx files. It must be because I only have Word 2003. And I don't have access to the source doc file since the project was sent to me as a Project Package.

Is there a workaround for this issue?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind regards

I get a similar message, though I'm using a later version of Word.
You can possibly work around this issue by using the File / View in / feature.
It worked for me.
