I cannot see how to use an electronic dictionary with Wordfast 6, and you can't easily copy a word to paste into a dictionary. Or am I missing something obvious?

No, you're not missing anything. Wordfast 6 is horrible right now; let's hope they improve things soon!

Are you referencing the internal dictionaries available? WFP does not support external dictionaries.

The internal dictionary which is accessed via the Spell Check feature has an easy to use Add To dictionary button for all words not in the dictionary.

Shortcoming Jan 23, 2009

I have found the previous version of Wordfast useful, and I like the company's approach of allowing translators to get used to the software before purchasing. However, in Wordfast 6, I regard the inability to use an external dictionary as a major shortcoming.
