Wordfast / Trados compatibility

I notice today (22/01/09) that an advertised job specifies Trados and anyone without Trados is not allowed to apply for the job. A user of Wordfast can successfully work with a Trados user because TMX files can be taken into Wordfast and returned asTMX files.
Is this a problem that can only be solved by Proz itself if it makes this fact clear to all Trados users?

Depends on the job Jan 22, 2009

Compatibility to Trados goes only to some level. There are tasks where only Trados's most recent version can be used. But this is only rarely the case.
You should be honest and mention that you do not have Trados but can deliver files that can be cleaned up in Trados Workbench, depending on the filetype.

Regards
Heinrich

Wordfast won’t accept TMs in Trados generic format and Multiterm glossaries.
