Hi all,

Again with Wordfast. Now if I want to see other documents while working on WF, I have to close THAT document and open the proper one, not simultaneously. What seems to be the trouble?

Again, any help is greatly appreciated.

not a trouble, according to me. Aug 11, 2006

Dear Pablo,

You have to close the translation session of WF of the first document, in order to work with the second one.

According to me this is not a trouble, but it preserves TMs, dictionaries and other seetings from err.

Kind regards,

Strange indeed Aug 11, 2006


I often open several documents in Word while working on a certain one in Wordfast.

What you describe seems strange to me. Maybe it's a matter of some settings?

Take care,

That's the thing... Aug 11, 2006

Hi again,

What seems strange to me is that I have Wf in other machine and it works just fine. I even ran antivirus software just in case and nothing happens...
