Hello,

I'm a longtime user of WF Classic who recently installed WF Pro 2.3.0. So far so good. Everything works OK, except the MT plugin. I get a frequent error message stating: "Failed to leverage segment" and adding that the connection to the Google server failed. Does anyone have any suggestions to solve this irritating glitch?

Hi, Miguel

I don't have an answer, but I can say that I share your experience. I have posted a query on the Wordfast discussion group at Yahoo! and so far have not received a reply. My situation is that I'm working on a document with 4,000 segments. I find it interesting that I did not encounter the error message you mention initially, but around the time I reached segment 1,600, I started it and experiencing MT crashes. I also notice that every time the MT link crashes, all my committed segments (blue) become uncommitted (pink). I would not bother using WF Pro except that I have a client who requires it. I was quite happy with WF Classic myself!

Deborah

I might migrate to Google Translate "cloud" altogether Apr 26, 2010

The problem with WF Classic is that Google blocks automatic MT searches because it interprets that your computer is a robot (also, I suppose, because use of Google's tool outside of their environment defeats the purpose of augmenting Google's memory). Anyway, if WF Pro keeps malfunctioning, I am seriously thinking of migrating to Google's translation environment.
