So far, I have only used WF for Castilian Spanish-English transltion. Now I would like to start using WF for Catalan-> English. Is this possible? Do I need to install another copy of the program? What steps should I take?
TIA.

You only need to set up a new TM where you designate the source language as Catalan, by clicking on TM in the Setup and then entering your source language code as you did for Castilian Spanish. You may need to look up the code in the training guide or the manual.

I assume you have only ever created on TM and have been using it ever since. But you can create many TMs and select one of them at the start of each translation. The TM is where the languages are specified, so you can translate an unlimited number of languages with one Wordfast. Just select the right TM.

To create a new TM: Go Translation Memory -> TM, and click "New TM".
To select a TM: Go Translation Memory -> TM, and click "Select TM".
