Hi all,

I'm trying to help another freelancer who just downloaded the legacy version of Wordfast (3.35x).
She's new to CAT tools, and have no clue about the settings.
Somehow, her output doesn't show up in Farsi font.

Which settings you usually have to do after install?
Does 3.35x work OK with RTL languages, or should she rather try another version or different tool alltogether?
She's not willing to plunk any money on this yet, for the time being she just wants a simple basic CAT tools for her Word files, nothing more.

Thanks for any input!

Two major technical features: RTL drivers and Persian fonts (TTF or others) Sep 12, 2009


Your friend might check that product to see if it includes these two major technical features:

1. Right-to-left ["RTL"] drivers


2. Persian fonts (TTF or others)

I do not know or need Wordfast in my business practice.

Hope this helps.
