After lots of problems the Wordfast Helpline really got me going (I did have to copy all the PB commands from the booklet in the end). Now all the commands there seem to be working, with the exception of the FR. I want to have Wordfast automatically replace all the words 'und' in a German text by 'and' in the English one, just so that when the new segments opens, all the unds have been converted into ands.

I have written FR="und","and",ww,/3 in PB, but it just won't replace the words. Where have I gone off the track?

Thank you in advance

FR="und","and",ww,/3 should be FR="und","and",ww,/T now Nov 6, 2007

It's not so obvious but FR="und","and",ww,/3 should be FR="und","and",ww,/T now. Yves recently has changed the PB command.
