Hello all.

We have both CAT Tools but I'm having a bit hard time working with wordfast. The Interface seems a bit user unfriendly to me. Is there any possibility to convert the wordfast file so that I can work on it in trados and then save it as wordfast again? I got only the wordfast file from the Client, no MS Word and I Need to deliver a Wordfast as well.

Thank you all!

Please be more clear Oct 16, 2014

Dear Monika,

Please state the Trados version and the Wordfast version (Classic, Pro, Anywhere) you're working with, the format of the files you receive and the format of the files you have to deliver.

Cheers,
Gerard

Thank you Gerard, I didn't think about it...
The file I have is a txml.
And I Need to deliver this type as well.

I work with Trados 2014 and the Wordfast that my husband has is the 6.

I've been working with Trados for years now and Wordfast seems a pain to me...
