Anyone know what is the maximum numbers of rows or words or characters who can be translated one time from an Excel file in Word with Wordfast ?
I need to translate thousands of rows and i want to know this before pay a license.

There's no limit that I know of ... but I really wouldn't recommend translating such a big excel file using the method described in the manual. Things can go awry, especially if you need to jump around a lot within the file (ie: going back to previous segments higher up, proofreading ...)

Copying the columns/rows into word as a table works ok too. Translate as usual in word and then clean up. Paste translation back into excel when done. If you have line breaks within cells, you may come across some issues, search the forums for a recent discussion on the subject.

You may wish to work with smaller chunks. Say, rows 1-200 in one word file, then 200-400 in another, and so on. Keeps things from slowing down too much.
