Hello,

I had to buy a new desktop with Windows 8.
I still use SDL Trados 2007 (for one of my main clients - a translation agency- it is mandatory) and would like to know if someone has encountered difficulties or if Trados 2007 runs smoothly with Windows 8.

Any suggestions on installing would be useful, too.

Thanks a lot for your precious help,
Juliana

No compatibility issues from my experience Oct 21, 2013

Trados 2007 should run fine on Windows 8 (and 8.1).

Win 8.1: file-based TM yes, server-based TM no. Jun 11, 2015

I understand that it should work fine with file-based memories, but not server-based memories.
Apparently SDL/Trados are not planning to resolve the problem.
Their "solution" is to migrate to Trados Studio.

I am not sure I quite understand what you mean here. As SDL has discontinued the old Trados, I cannot see how you would expect them to resolve the problem. Would be more or less like Microsoft resolving problems in Windows XP.

Doesn't clean files Jun 11, 2015

I got a laptop with Window 8.1 and also Trados 2007. I don't know why, but Trados doesn't clean the files, I use the macro tw4winClean.Main for that purpose.
