I have to update from Office 2003 to Office 2007 and heard that Trados 7.0 does not work with Word 2007. Is this true?

And if I update to SDL Trados 2007, can I use my old databases (tmw-files)?

I would also appreciate hearing any comments about the new SDL Trados, i.e. if you are satsified with it, if there are any problems, advantages etc..

Thanks in advance possums,

Love Christiane

As far as I tried, they are not compatible Feb 13, 2008

I have installed my Trados 7.1 in a laptop that has MS office 2007, it seems that word does not recognise the Trados at all. However, if you are using TagEditor, it is fine running on Vista.

I have read in Trados website saying that they are not compatible, you will need 2007 version to run with MS office 2007.

They don't work together Feb 14, 2008

When I tried to work with Trados 7 and Office 2007 on Vista, I saw that although Word recognised Trados and contained both the toolbar and the menu of Trados, for some mysterious reason the segments would simply not open. So, I went back to Word 2003...

Yeees! Mar 11, 2008

but you must use TRADOS8.dotm instead of
so the best procedure is to unisntall SDL Trados 2007 and reinstall it
(and after reinstall SP2)
