I am hoping this is only my technical inability - is there really still no support for Office 365 preview/live preview in Trados Studio 2015??? Everything runs on Windows 10 home, if that helps to answer the question.

I'm also waiting for this feature to be returned to Studio since MS removed one of its components on non-MSI Office versions.

Actually, I've been working from an old machine running Office 2007 this week and am delighted to see live preview in action again (although it doesn't make up for the inconveniences of the old Office version - different language shortcuts, no docx to PDF saving, no opening of PDFs in Word... but I digress).

You may have seen there's a new .docx file type in Studio (called Word 2007-2016). Well, apparently it will probably have the live preview feature in the future, but right now its in technical preview form. Let's hope it'll be sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, do you know you can use Ctrl+Shift+P to view your target doc in Word? Although you don't get the real-time updating like that.

No preview for Microsoft 2013 Sep 29, 2015


I just bought Trados Studio 2015 and cannot believe that the realtime preview function does not work (this does not only apply to Word 365 but also to Word 2013, which is my version). But thanks, Emma. This will have to do in the meantime.

Kind regards
