Wordfast Pro 4 is about to be released: http://www.wordfast.com/conference/program

What new features do you think they will include to compete with Trados Studio 2015 and memoQ 2015? (both coming soon as well).

Studio 2015 is still "vaporware" at this stage, but memoQ 2015 is real and can be dowloaded. I already made a tutorial video about it:

http://www.proz.com/forum/memoq_support/286208-first_steps_with_memoq_2015_video.html

Wordfast Pro 4 will have WYSIWYG formatting (instead of tags) for the main attributes (bold, italic, underline, subscript, superscript) and the main file formats (MS Office). Both Studio and memoQ have had that for quite some time already.

The user interface will use a ribbon (like MS Office 2007 and newer), which is something Studio and memoQ already have.

For more detailed info, I guess you should attend the conference in Riga . You can also apply for the beta program and/or test the online version of WFP4 inside Wordfast Anywhere.

Thank you May 26, 2015

That's good news! Wordfast Pro 4 certainly looks very promising (finally, a WYSIWYG editor).

Thank you for your tutorial video about memoQ 2015, Dominique I thought it wasn't out yet.

A few more features May 26, 2015

Dear Jorge,

I have been testing Wordfast Pro 4 for a couple of months now and here are a few more features:

Projects
4 is much more project-oriented than 3. You can create project specific preferences and base a newly created project off a previous one (select same TMs, glossaries, etc.). You can also export and import project packages (useful if/when outsourcing work).

Reports
The report has change and is finally legible. You can export reports in several formats including HTML, PDF, CSV and XLS.

Outline view
This is gone and replaced by a really nice filtering tool. This allows you for example to filter and only view segments that have notes, are unconfirmed, have transcheck errors, etc.

Glossaries
You can see glossary entries in a separate pane.

Interface
There are a lot of ways to customize the interface, for example, change the size of ribbon icons, include/exclude icon text, hide change the order of columns.

We just launched a survey to get some feedback about user needs. Would love to hear from you!

The beta version is stable enough now to complete a project except for the missing spellchecker on the Mac version (coming soon). There are a few minor bugs (mostly affecting Mac) but no show stoppers.

Please join the beta group and let us know what you think!

Best,

John
