I installed Wf 6.0, but was not able to locate a manual or tutorial. Do you know of any?

Regards
Heinrich

Online WordFast manual Dec 18, 2008

I use only the online manual [Helpfile]. There is no on-hand manual to use as I have the latest information.

But the online help does not work, at least not in Chrome Dec 18, 2008

There is nothing to be seen, no index, no search result, just the titles.

 
Wordfast Pro Manual Dec 18, 2008

Hi Heinrich,

The online help pages need to be viewed in I.E, Firefox or Safari. They are not compatible with Chrome at this time.

There will be updates coming to the online help pages as well as support videos to walk through Wordfast Pro.

Regards,
Hillary

Under development processes Dec 19, 2008

I understand that both WordFast 6.0 and its user manual need more improvements.
I already commented about non-functional menu/tool bar and online help click in this Proz forum.
I hope WordFast 6.0 is as reputable as WordFast 5.xx in the coming years.
The Yahoo or other user group forum is not so active for WordFast 6.0 now; I guess that this version is too new to be popular at this moment though its free license is valid until December 31.
It also have superior points: Faster processing time, smaller program size, few resource requirements, slim translation processes, compatibility with XML format.

Well, I have to say that my opinion is quite the opposite based upon the messages that I receive (and read) every day from both the Wordfast Classic and the new Wordfast6 Groups on Yahoo. The groups are actually very active and it is a good thing that they finally created a separate group for Wordfast 6.0 last month because it is now much easier to follow up the different topics without mixing both WF versions.

And I find it very useful. I initially subscribed to the group because of a problem that I was not able to solve on my own, and my problem was actually solved very quickly by contributors to the list. Since then, I have continued to read the messages, taking notes of any interesting problems and solutions, just in case, and I must say that I have learned a lot and I am still learningicon_wink.gif
