Hi all,

I'm getting rid of my old PC to buy a new one, but I would like to know if I need a new WF license for that machine, or can I just download the software and use that same license?

Thanks in advance for your support.


All best,

Pablo

Relicense if you already have a license Oct 12, 2006

You need to relicence the version, which you can do free of charge.

Please go to http://www.wordfast.net/ and click on "buy". Click on "click here to re-license Wordfast if you already own a license" and follow the instructions.

Hope this helps.

Wenke

Just for the record Oct 12, 2006

Many users really believe you have to buy a new Wf-license when switching machines. That is not true. One license is good for three years of use.
Regards
Heinrich

I can't relicense Aug 7, 2010

sorry if this has been already mentioned somewhere.
My PC does not work anymore. I installed wordfast last version in my Mac with the same license. It does not recognize it saying that it's unknown or already in use.
What should i do?
thank you

You can log-in to your account (wordfast.net > support > login) and enter the *new* Install No shown in Wordfast Pro > Help menu > License Management into the online licensing system to get a new suitable lic file.

You can watch this small video, describing Wordfast Pro licensing steps:
