Hallo again,

I would like to run an MT (machine translator) on Wordfast. I am using an iMac (quite new), and I have no clue how to get the connection done.

Can I use an internet platform or do I need to buy the product? If the latter - which MTs run on Macs?

What would the individual steps be?
I have found the following in the mauanl:

Setting up the MT mode:

1. Check the "Menu, sub-menu for MT... " checkbox.
2. In the textbox next to it, enter the menu and submenu which, in Ms-Word, are used to translate a selection. This could be:
Translate,Selection or Systran,Translate or Translate,Sentence etc.
Do not enter a space after the comma. The comma is a delimiter between the two menus. If you work on tagged files with an MT package that does not support tags, check the "Remove tags" option.
3. Close Wordfast. In Ms-Word, test your translation package over a short sentence to see if it's correctly setup and running.

BUT, I have to give up at the first sentence - I can't find a checkbox anywhere. Wordfast has the command bar at the left of the screen, but I can't find anything resembling a menu in there. How do I open a menu?

As I have trouble with pandora's box as well (cf. my other post) - could there be some general problem with Wordfast on this iMac? I have reinstalled Wordfast, so at least it cleans the documents, but that's as far as it goes.

Any help is appreciated! Thanx in advance!

Not with Mac Oct 9, 2007

As far as I remember, this is not doable on Mac OS (yet).
But please let Wf team know, to improve the Mac compatibility
