Have you tried using the forum search function, using "toolbar missing" and/or "taskbar missing"?

Best regards,

some indications taken from Trados User's Guide Jun 16, 2006

TRADOS-Word Interface
Translator's Workbench and Word communicate via a specially designed document template, When this template is activated in Word, the Trados menu is added to the Word
menu bar; when you open a document for editing, the Workbench toolbar is displayed. The Trados
menu and Workbench toolbar in Word provide access to the commands that you require for
translation with Translator’s Workbench.
During installation of the TRADOS translation solution, the setup program tries to determine where
the Word Startup folder is located on your computer. If it is successful, it installs the TRADOS-Word
template and the next time you launch Word, the interface with Translator’s Workbench isautomatically available. If for some reason the Trados menu is not available in Word after
installation, you may need to prepare Word manually.

Manually Preparing Word

The TRADOS-Word template,, is copied to the TT\Templates folder during
installation of the TRADOS translation solution. Use this file to make the interface with
Translator’s Workbench permanently available in Word.
To set up the interface between Word and Translator’s Workbench:
1 In Windows Explorer, copy the TRADOS-Word template,, from the
TT\Templates subfolder of your TRADOS installation to Word’s template folder.
2 In Word, select Templates and Add-ins from the Tools menu. The Templates and Add-ins
dialog box is displayed.
3 Click Add to open the Add Template dialog box. This dialog box contains a list of all templates
that are available in Word’s template folder.
4 In the Add Template dialog box, select Click OK to add the TRADOS-Word
template as a global template to the standard Word template,
5 In the Templates and Add-Ins dialog box, is listed as an active global template.
Click OK to confirm and to return to the main Word program window. The Trados menu is
now visible in Word’s menu bar.

Every time you start Word, you must activate the Translator's Workbench template by selecting
Global Templates and Add-Ins on the Tools menu in Word and selecting in the
Global templates list. For this to happen automatically, copy the TRADOS-Word template to Word’s
Startup folder (usually C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup). The template is then
activated automatically each time you start Word. You can deactivate the template temporarily by
selecting Templates and Add-Ins on the Tools menu and clearing the check box. To
permanently deactivate the template, delete the file from the Startup folder and
restart Word.

Translator’s Workbench 6.0 does not support earlier versions of the TRADOS-Word document
template. Make sure that you install and rename or remove,, or from your computer.

I hope it would help
