Export WF to TMX, create a new empty TM in Studio with corresponding language pair and import the TMX. That should be all.

A word of caution: Wordfast language codes can be different from what is recognized by Studio 2009.

For example, when I used WF, its code for Polish was PL-01, something that, AFAIK, is not used in any other CAT tool.

So, you must check what language codes Studio 2009 expects. Otherwise it might tell you that nothing was imported.

WF2TMX Aug 22, 2009

Try WF2TMX. One benefit of this tool is that it zaps the "non valid TUs" without to stop the process until to the end of the file. You can download it from the files section at the the wordfast yahoogroup tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/wordfast/files

I am sorry, I deleted the direct dowload link , because it worked at my computer before, but not after publisihing this comment and I am afraid this will be the case for other people too
