Hi All,

I have my Wordfast Classic installed in MS Word 2003. I wonder if I can have my MS Word upgraded to MS Word 2007 and have Wordfast Classic installed in MS Word 2007.

Thank you very much!

Yes, but... May 6, 2009

Make sure you have WFC version 5.51h (March 2007 release) or higher.

Older versions may not work.

I use 5.52 with Word 2007 and I'm happy with it.

PlusTools also works with Word 2007, see this link for more information about how to install it (and launch it!)

Try the betas May 6, 2009

The betas are still better: they install a nice icon on the title bar of Word (Quick access toolbar Microsoft calls it, I think).

It's a pity they haven't published one of the 5.60 versions on their site yet.
