I'm trying to translate HTML and HTM documents (such as http://www.times.com/) on Wordfast Pro 6 trial version, but it shows this error message: Unsupported file format HTM

Is it because of the web page, the trial version, or some type of conversion I have to make before translating?

Thanks,

Sebastian

First of all, please make sure you download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html

You can open HTML files directly without any problem.

As for HTM files, you need to change the extension from HTM into HTML. That is how you can open HTM files in Wordfast Pro.

-----------------------------------

If you want to add the HTM extension to WFP to be able to open it directly without changing the extension, you can follow these steps:

- WFP > Edit (menu) > Preferences > Formats > New > Text Based Filter
- In "Extension" textbox type, *.htm
- In "Conversion Rules" browse (using "..." button) to locate a property file called: HTML.properties. Its location should be similar to that:

C:\Program Files\Wordfast\rules\HTML.properties

- Click OK to save.
- Later, you can rename the filter (optional).


Now, you should find the extension *.htm among the supported formats while you try to open a file.


I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
