Dear all,

second question - I did not want to mix them up: How do I create a biligual version in Wordfast (like an uncleared file in Trados)?

My best regards

Anja

Hi Anja

I'm only a very basic user but, when you've finished translating you have a bilingual document. For safety's sake I always save a copy under a different file name before cleaning but, when you clean, Wordfast also creates a back up bilingual document - file extension .bak.

If you're using WF Pro, you can't.

If you need to do this, try WF Classic.

Dear Lorie, dear Russel,

I am working on a Mac - is there WF Classic available for it?

When I look at my desktop, I see my TM file as a tmx.bak Version! But not my source file. Do I do anything wrong?

Best regards
Anja

If you have MSWord for Mac 2004, then yes, you can use WF Classic. WF Classic does NOT work with the latest version of MSWord for Mac 2008.

Keep in mind that though that the size of the TM you can use with a demo version is limited to 500 TUs.

.bak file Oct 28, 2009

Before you clean up the file, wordfast will automatically save your 'uncleaned file' as a file with extension bak. You can use MS Word to open this file.
I don't know whether it will also work on a Mac.
