Hello

I just bought studio over the weekend after using the trial version for a while. I have Windows 8.0.

I have created a termbase in Multiterm, so far so good, but I can't enter a new term in either Multiterm or in Studio. The space is simply blank, sometimes showing the Multiterm logo. I see the two languages, but the main part of the window where something should be coming up is simply blank.

I have looked on various forums and saw that Java is often an issue and indeed, the first time I tried to enter a term Java came up and said it needed to be updated, so I updated it. That didn't help any. I have lowered the security setting since that seemed to solve the problem for other people, but that has also not helped.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks,
Helle

Solved with installing 32 bit - not happy with Trados! Jan 27, 2014

Happy to say I took someone's advice about uninstalling Java and then reinstalling using 32-bit rather than 64 and it works!

But I gotta say I am really NOT IMPRESSED! Where else can you buy an expensive item and right out of the box, it doesn't work! The developer knows it doesn't work but there is no notice of this when you purchase it; no guidelines for dealing with this common well-known problem. Each and every customer has to go out and find a solution individually. I have wasted more half a day on this problem. SDL - you should do better!

I also have memoQ and creating a termbase happens inside the program, with a simple click of a button and you are up and running. memoQ is user friendly and easy to use and I was translating my first file almost immediately. So far everything I've heard about Trados seems to be true. Too bad so many agencies use this tool.
