Hello, everybody.
I would like a suggestion.
I have to use Dragon Naturally Speaking within Trados 2011.
Can anyone tell me what version of Dragon naturally Speaking is compatible with Trados 2011. There are three of it, Home, Premium and Professional.
Thanks in advance for a reply.

I use WF Classic and Dragon Premium 11.5 and they work fine together. I don't use Trados, but my friend does and he also has no problems with Dragon and (I think he uses) the Trados 2011 studio.

PS: I just skyped him and it turns out he's using Trados 2007, (build 863), whatever that means, and his Dragon Premium (version 11.0) works fine with that.
However, he also says "It only sort of works with 2011. Another reason for staying with 2007 and Windows XP for as long as poss"...
I then asked him to define "sort of" and he says:
"You have to say "Get term and move to next translation unit", or some such nonsense. With 2007 you just say "translate to fuzzy" and it jumps to the next translation unit. My version also lets you use the instructions "Get translation", which the new one doesn't, as far as I can tell."

So, it probably does work with 2011, but not as fluidly as he'd like.
