Just sent me the files, and tell me which version of Wordfast you want them converted to.

What's the problem? Nov 7, 2011

Hi Pierre,

Is the problem that you can't convert them using 2009 or that you don't want to use 2009? If the former send me your TMW (all files) and I can try to upgrade the TMs for you. If the latter I can try to get the TMX out for you.
