I found this to be very funny! Used Trados 2011 for a few jobs. Then for a certain job I found it more convenient to use 2007 so I opened the WORD file with the Workbench and to my astonishment I did not see the SDL Trados option on the menu bar. Assuming that it may have been automatically disabled as has happened many times in the past, I went to WORD Options and checked for the disabled Add-ins, so that I could simply enable the TRADOS add-in, BUT Trados is nowhere to be seen in that list !!!!

Can someone please advice on what needs doing? Quick responses will be appreciated as the work is pretty urgent.

Thanks in advance

Normally NO! Dec 18, 2014

That is to say, as long as you have a licence for 2007. You bought the product, so it is yours, and it can be uploaded from the SDL-site. I did.

Trados 2007 and Studio 2009/2001/2014 aren't related in any way.

Thanks for your responses! Dec 18, 2014

Thanks to you both Robert and Natalie, but could any of you tell me if there is a shorter way of resolving the issue. Re-installing the whole software would be the last resort.

Yes I do have both the licenses. When I upgraded to 2011, I was granted a permanent 2007 license too.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards

dotm file in Start-up folder Dec 18, 2014

I understand you've installed 2007 on your machine already, but the dotm file has got lost.

If that's the case, then copy it from here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SDL International\T2007_FL\TT\Templates
to here:
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP

Hope that helps.

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\Startup

Note that Application Data is a hidden folder, and hidden files and folders are not visible by default in Windows.
