NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: Salón 1 Güell

We only have 15 minutes so I'll take a poll at the beginning to see what the majority of people are interested in learning about. Come see me at the Wordfast booth during the conference earlier in the day and I'll show you whatever you want!

1. "Not another PDF! Why can't my client send me a nice Word document instead..." If you find yourself repeating this all too often, come to this demonstration to learn how to use Wordfast Anywhere—a free, online tool—to convert both PDFs and even scanned images to Word documents.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  1. Convert a scanned image or document to a Word file so it can be translated with a CAT tool


2. "I wish I had been using a CAT tool before! Is there any way I can create a translation memory from all of my past translations?" During the second half of this demonstration, we'll learn how to align source and target documents using Wordfast Anywhere, create a translation memory (TM), and merge them into a single client TM.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  1. Align target and source documents from past projects and create a TM from them
  2. Merge multiple TMs into a single TM
