Hello everyone

For the past few months I've been translating/editing a project in Smartling. For this purpose, I extract the text from Smartling, do the translation/editing in Wordfast Classic, and then paste the updated text or translations back into Smartling on a per-segment basis. I do the extracting and pasting using a pair of AutoIt scripts.

It's not ideal, and there is much in Smartling that is unfortunate, but these scripts do help. So, if anyone is interested, here are the scripts:

You must have AutoIt installed to use them.
