SDL Trados 2015 Editor freezes when accepting translation by using Confirm and Move to the Next Unconfirmed segment Feature, whether it is with the keyboard or the mouse. I have uninstalled, re-installed, added updates, disabled plugins, etc. to no avail.
After a long time I get the message "Unable to locate if Microsoft Word is installed on this machine"
Please help.

O.S. Windows 10

Do you have MS Office installed on your PC? Jul 14, 2016


The error message indicates that you have selected "Microsoft Word" as your spellchecker and Studio cannot locate MS Office for some reason.

I suggest you go to "File - Options - Editor - Spelling" and select "Hunspell" in the drop-down field labelled "Active Spell Checker". This will disable the use of the Office Spellchecker.

If this solves the problem, then you know that the issue was caused by the spellchecker.

If you don't have MS Office on your PC, leave it like this. If you and want to use the MSO spellchecker, then you'll probably need to run a repair of MS Office, so that Studio can properly recognize it.
