Hello,

I would like to build up my first TM by aligning the segments of files in the source and target languages. Does this feature not exist ?

I know there is a free alignment tool, but it only seems to work with MS Word...

TIA Eric

Why don't you want to use Word?

Because I migrated to StarWriter. I thougt Wordfast 6 was a stand-alone program (it is written in Java), but it still seems not to be fully functional without MS-Word ...

Wordfast is a set of Word macros. That's why it is light. (pas une "usine à gaz")

Yes, it is ;-) Nov 17, 2008

Wordfast 6 will be available in two versions: As a traditional set of Word macros and as a platform and Word independant stand-alone Java application.
But Heartsome seems to be fine, too, and comes with an optional aligner

Oops, I quickly returned to Wordfast 6, seems to be somewhat userfriendlier and more reliable than Heartsome turned out to be. And the preview also works with StarWriter !

BTW, the pre-release of the Java-Version is freely available until the end of the year.
