Hi,

Is anyone using Trados5 with Office XP?


I have just ordered Trados5 Freelance and I am going to use it with Office XP. On their web site Trados doesn\'t claim to fully support Office XP and they say \"You use Word XP and PowerPoint XP in combination with TRADOS 5 applications at your own risk. \"


I did ask my local supplier about this, and according to him the information on the web site is out-of-date and that the latest release has been corrected to fully support Office XP.


I would like to know whether other people are using this combination and whether you have encountered many problems.

Dont go for Office XP right now Oct 25, 2001

Hello,

Trados does not yet support OfficeXP. Wait till TRADOS makes an update for their products to be compatible with XP.

Sameh

...to fast on the \"Submit\" button!

As far as I can tell from that document, you should be doing ok as long as you stay off the latest \"bells and whistles\" in OfficeXP (I should add that I\'m stubbornly sticking to Office 97 to this present day...*g*)

Trados and Windows XP.... Jan 14, 2002

Hi


I am about to upgrade my PC to Windows XP and loads more much needed memory. It is also time to get working on Trados and before I purchase it, I\'d love to hear how you find using it and perhaps tips on how to best purchase it (directly at Trados website or thru e.g. a trade organisation like IoL or Proz)?


thanks

Helle

TRADOS and Office XP Mar 12, 2002

I\'m currently working with TRADOS 5 and Office XP - but only the latest release of TRADOS 5 (in my case it is the german localisad edition) works properly with XP. Even if TRADOS states, that XP is not yetz fully supported, I have no problems in working with WORD or EXCEL or even POWER POINT and TRADOS.

Trados Update 5.5 Mar 29, 2002

Hello Minna,


Trados has just released an update (called 5.5) that is supposed to fully support Windows XP (according to Trados), and if you have bought 5.0, you can download the update for free at www.translationzone.com.


Have a great Easter,

Patricia

XP and Trados 5 May 9, 2002


Hi!

I recently had to be sure of the same thing and have been told by Trados support that it is fully compatible, both with XP OS and XP Office programs.
