Hello everybody,
I have a problem with Wordfast professional 6 - It used to work generally quite well,
no real problems so far, except some shortcuts...
Yesterday Wordfast suddenly didn't open any more. I reinstalled the program and checked the "maintain project folders and glossaries" option.
The trouble is, I can't find the glossaries - I tried creating a new one and I searched for this new one in the folder Wordfast indicates - I can't find a file by that name in that folder-
the glossary does work though.
So where are my glossaries?
Do I have to export them every day or so in order not to lose anything or do they exist -
"hidden" somewhere?
Does anybody know about that, it would also help me to know what the file ending is -
.txt ?

Thanks a lot for your time

WfMemory.Itx and .Txt Jun 10, 2009

By default it's something with WfMemory.Itx and .Txt

Hope it helps

Nothing... Jun 10, 2009

Thank you Edward for your reply...
Unfortunately I can't find one single file like that on my computer...
The glossaries could be easily found with the old classic Wordfast version - it was as you said something like WfMemory.Itx...Now with the new version nothing...

Hi Julia,

There is no physical glossary file created. If you need a physical glossary file, you will need to export it. However, when you reinstall Wordfast you can always open them by going to terminology > new/select terminology > open and look for the symbolic name. And if you need to edit the glossary you can do so using the glossary editor inside Wordfast.
