Hi everyone,

I got Trados 5 installed for my introduction to this CAT tool. I can create TM without problems and Trados toolbars show in my MS Word document.
However, when I activate the Open/Get button, I get the following notice in Translator's Workbench:

Outdated document template (TW4Win2k.dot or earlier). Please use current version.

Could you assist me in how to remedy this situation, please?
Thank you.

Which Word version? Feb 16, 2007

Hi Ljerka,
Impossible to answer without knowing which Word version you're using (although I suspect you're using Word 2003...?).

Best regards,
Ralf

Need to upgrade Trados, or 'downgrade' Word Feb 16, 2007

Hi again,
IIRC Trados 5 does not support Word 2003 (bear in mind that Office 2003 was probably not even developed when T5 was out).

This means that you will need to upgrade Trados or use an older Word version (which I wouldn't recommend).

HTH, Ralf

Thank you for answering, Ralf.

I'm not going to do either for the time being. I wanted to see how Trados works and version 5.5 was the only one for free download.

I'll stick to other CAT tools for now...

Regards,
Ljerka

Try the SDL Trados 2006 Trial Version Feb 16, 2007

Hello Ljerka,

I wanted to see how Trados works and version 5.5 was the only one for free download.


If you go to TranslationZone.com you can download the latest version (SDL Trados 2006) as a trial version: SDL Trados 2006 Trial Version.

I'll stick to other CAT tools for now...

As you only tried a completely outdated years-old version, I suggest that you give SDL TRADOS 2006 a try.

Best,
Stefan Gentz

Trados 6 Feb 16, 2007

OK, I have downloaded Trados 6 and it has taken me only a tiny step ahead of Trados 5. I´ve downloaded also Trados 2006 tutorial, only to come upon the first discrepancy in trying to set MultiTerm version. The tutorial prompts to select multiterm 7, while the downloaded version offers only multiterm 5 (Trados 5) and no options in Language selection boxes...

where do I go from here?
