Hello,

I use Wordfast 6 - my trial expired so I purchased the full pro version.
It's running ok so far but I can't find the useful feature of provisional segments I had on the
previous version (F10).
I just can't find it anywhere.
I would appreciate some help here,...
thanks!
Julia

There is no such feature Mar 9, 2009

There are no provisional segments in Wordfast "Pro"; you just have to check the list of segments on the right-hand panel and look for those segments that have a white little box next to them. Intuitive, huh? Not at all! The list of segments on the right panel is totally redundant.

Isn't white just "not translated"? Mar 9, 2009

I thought white stands just for "not translated" - that means I can't mark
those segments I want to look at again? That's much worse than the free version.
It was a feature I often used if I was not so sure about a translation and wanted to move on and recheck those segments later on...

What do you do in such a case - just using some symbols to mark segments?
Thanks anyway for your answer...

If I don't want them to appear in green, I simply edit the corresponding segments.

Just use Wordfast Classic.... Mar 10, 2009

My advice is to stick to Wordfast Classic; or, if you want to try something new and do not mind paying, give MemoQ a spin.
I'm totally disappointed by the direction towards which Wordfast is heading.
