Thread poster: Wordfast Support
Dec 22, 2008

For those of you who do not own a Wordfast license and are currently working with our free trial version, we are extending the trial license for Wordfast Pro 6.0 until January 31, 2009.

To take advantage of the license extension please navigate to www.wordfast.com/store_download.html , be sure to reference the included installation instructions.

For current Wordfast license owners, email instructions will be sent to you in early January with information on how to obtain your permanent Wordfast Pro 6.0 license free of charge.

Please note: Pricing for Wordfast licenses will increase on January 1, 2009. In order to take advantage of the current retail price, you must purchase your license before that date.


Best,
Hillary

Unfinnished software Dec 23, 2008

I will not even think of paying for Wordfast 6.0 as long as my "classic" license is valid. If they want to keep their market position they'll have to extend the classic license to the editor version. Now they are only bluffing. I bet.
Happy translating!

What about the license policy for Wf 6? Dec 23, 2008

I wrote three times to Wordfast recently and did not get an answer. Will it be the same as for the other versions? We do not even know the price for this new version.

I believe we should get these details beforehand.

Furthermore, is a license older than three years still considered *valid* in order to get a free license for version 6.0? I mean, even if it is older than three years, we can perfectly and legally use it as long as we do not change computer/OS. But do we need to relicense anyway if we want to get WF 6 free of charge?

I am a WF user and very pleased with it.

Is my license for WF 5.53q valid for the new WF 6.0?

Hi Nigel,

Great to hear you are pleased with Wordfast Classic. To answer your question, yes all Wordfast Classic license holders will be entitled to also license Wordfast Pro concurrently.

We will be sending out emails to all license holders once they are able to generate a license for Wordfast Pro and begin using this software. This will be coming in the next month.

As a reminder Wordfast Pro is not replacing Wordfast Classic and both products will be sold as a bundle moving forward. You will be able to run both products at the same time depending on your project/client needs!

Regards,
Hillary

Wordfast Bundle License Dec 23, 2008

Hi Heinrich,

Just to clarify we are selling Wordfast Pro and Wordfast Classic as a bundle. All current license holders of Wordfast Classic are entitled to add a Wordfast Pro license at no extra charge for the remainder of their license period. Currently Wordfast Pro is still in its pre-release stage and we have not starting generating licenses for license holders. We will be starting this process in the next month.

Due to a community response we have extended our Trial License period for non-WF license holders to have more time to test out the full version of the software before buying.

As I said previously the price for a Wordfast License (entitling you to Classic and Pro) will be increasing to 300 Euros starting January 1, 2009.

Regards,
Hillary

PPT and Excel files Dec 23, 2008

Can I translate PPT and excel files with Wordfast 6.0. ?

I am clumsy with new softwares, and wouldn't try it unless it has some revolutionary advantages compared to the old version.

Is this the right place... Dec 24, 2008

...for my question?

I tested Wordfast 6.0 and couldn't use the "/" sign. I had to copy it from the source.
Is this a software bug? Did anyone experienced the same?

Word 97-2003, or just Word 2007?

If Word 97-2003, is it supported directly, or does it involve conversion to RTF and back?

If it involves conversion to RTF and back, is Word itself required for this?

Hi Marc,

Actually it works with 97-2003 with the current version available. Word 2007 documents will have to be saved as a 97-03 file type for use in Wordfast Pro. We are working on accepting Word 2007 and expect it to be resolved around the corner.

You do not need to convert to RTF, that is not an accepted format actually. Wordfast Pro translates inside a .TXML file. So you do not need Word if you have been supplied a TXML file from your agency/client.

If you are working with any of the other file types I mentioned Wordfast converts them to TXML and back very easily inside the software.

Hope that helps!
Hillary

To pay for an unfinished product and expect that it will become ready in the near future (and still have the license expiration time running) is not what I'd call "taking advantage of the retail price".

I got following error message by trying to open a xml-file with Wordfast Pro 6.0:
"Unsupported document format" - the same with txt-files.
But I got this feeling that Wordfast Classic and Wordfast Pro are two separate CAT-Tools. Either I have to work with this or that one.

Hi Jamal,

You must convert your XML file to TXML through the PM Perspective. After you convert it, you will be able to open and translate via the TXML and save again as an XML file. Txt flies are not a supported file format however.

Yes you are correct, WFC and WFP are two separate CAT Tools, they can be used concurrently as the WF Translation Studio in order to fit your preferences and current project needs.

Regards,
Hillary
