I am just learning my way through Wordfast Pro and wonder what solutions people have found for alignment - will PlusTools work with Office 2008 (when Wordfast Classic does not)? Or does anyone have other recommendations?

Wordfast Pro built-in alignment module is being implemented and should be available soon.

In the meanwhile, you can use Bitext2TMX; it supports Mac:

http://bitext2tmx.sourceforge.net/
http://bitext2tmx.sourceforge.net/b2tqs_en.html

It is a free easy-to-use alignment tool that offers Mac support.


I hope this helps.

next step with TMX file? Feb 9, 2010

Hi Yasmin -

Thanks for the tip - I've followed through so far and end up with a TMX file.

What format do I want to end up in, to bring the result into WFP as a TM, and how do I get there from the alignment?

Thanks!

Joy

Just add it to your project Feb 9, 2010

Click the "translation memory" tab, new/select TM, open and browse to the location where you saved your TMX file.

WFP can open TMX TMs Feb 9, 2010

Great! Now you can open it directly in Wordfast Pro. Just make sure you create/open a project with the same language locales. Then go to: Translation Memory menu > New/Select TM > Open > Browse. From the drop-down menu, select "Translation Memory eXchange File", which simply means TMX TM. Locate your TMX TM and click "Open" > OK.


I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Importing TM from Trados Workbench to WFP Feb 3, 2011

So by what I am reading, does that mean you can also import a TM from Trados Workbench int WFP? I am trying learning WFP for Mac and unfortunately am finding more articles for Windows than Mac. I can't find the PlusTools for Mac either, to align docs. Can anyone offer any more help???? Thanks.

Align available in WFP? Jan 23, 2014

Yasmin, I notice that your "coming soon" comment regarding this functionality in wordfast pro was almost 4 years ago. Is it now available? If so is it an integral part of WFP or is it a separate tool?

WF Autoaligner Jan 23, 2014

Hi BRtrading,

I would recommend using Wordfast's free alignment tool called WF Autoaligner, available online via www.freetm.com.

Once you create a free account and are logged in, click on the "Tools" menu, and then on the command "Align your Files" (see screenshot here: http://screencast.com/t/K1Qqajtpw
From there on, you should be able to follow the instructions on the screen.

Good luck,

John
