Hello,

I am less or more forced to move to Windows 10
because my new laptop was delivered with it.

My old system is
- windows XP
- trados Studio 2011
- Office 2010

I currently want to keep Studio 2011 but I am thinking about installing Office 2016.
I do not want to upgrade to Studio 2015 now.

First question is, how to bring Trados Studio 2011 to my Windows 10 computer
- deactivate the licence on my xp computer
- install from scratch Studio 2011
- activate the licence
=> Is this the correct procedure ?
Anything else I should do or look after ?

Question number two is, does it make sense to install Office 2016 instead of 2010.
My main concern is that trados studio 2011 uses some parts of office package (e.g. spell checker, file conversion routines, etc) and that Trados Studio 2011 won't work with Office 2016.

All useful suggestions are highly welcome

Thanks in advance

Ralf

Stay with Office 2010 Mar 3, 2016

Do not go to Office 2016 or you may have file version compatibility issues; there are many other threads on this.

I went from 2013 to 2016 but had to roll it back to Office 2013 - this was with Studio 2014. Apparently Studio 2015 works fine with Office 2016, but like you I'm not planning to upgrade just yet.

I have had no problems with Windows 10 so far.

Yes, that would work.
Or, you could download and install Studio 2011 on your new computer and use its default one-month demo (which is the full professional version) before you deactivate the license from your XP computer.

For more ideas, have a read of this post, which is about Studio 2014, but will still be helpful:

Re: Word versions:
I agree with Dan. If you want to use an old version of Studio, then use an old version of Word to match.

Hi Hispa,

I would like to confirm that Studio 2011 and Office 2016 are indeed incompatible and will not work.
Only Studio 2015 is compatible with Office 2016.

As you may not be aware- Studio 2011 is no longer officially supported by SDL but upgrades are still available.

Should you have file related issues an ideal starting point to find a possible solution is our fantastic (and of course free) SDL COMMUNITY

http://xl8.one

This is staffed by both SDL and Industry professionals who are sure to be able to offer advise.

For general SDL enquires we also have our own LIVE CHAT-

how about Windows10 - Studio 2011 - Office 2013 Mar 4, 2016

Dear all,

thank you for your really helpful replies.

I also digged a bit deeper now and
found that Studio 2011 still seems to support Office 2013.

So the combination Windows10 - Studio 2011 - Office 2013
should work, is that correct ?

I am asking because the old MS Office 2010 will anyway remain on
my old computer. So now that a new licence is needed either way, ithe only
question is 2010 or 2013...

Regards

Ralf

2010 and 2013 would both work, but...

If I were you I'd move Office 2010 to your new computer to match Studio 2011 and install Open Office on your old computer.

Or, better still, upgrade to Studio 2015 and get Office 2016.
Studio 2015 has so many features that Studio 2011 doesn't have: merging files on the fly, automatic concordance, improved terminology (no Java issues), autocorrect, PDF processing, retrofit...

Try Office 365 Mar 4, 2016

I use a 5-device license of Microsoft Office 365. The license only lasts one year, but then again it only costs £62, which is good value in my eyes.

The only slight doubt in my mind is whether you would still be able to download Office 2013 rather than 2016. I can and did a couple of months ago, so it should be okay, but it's worth looking into.

Thank you Emma,

I agree but in my case it is simply a question of price.
Translation is only a side job for me.

I can get an Office licence for some 30€ on Ebay...but the studio upgrade
(even taking into account SDLs current 30% discount) is in the ballpark of ~300€.

Regards

Ralf
