The question looks easy but, how can I open a Word file?

No file formats appear in Edit/Preferences/Filters/Formats (in this particular project).
Clicking on New, I can only choose between ASP, HTML, INX, JSP, Java Properties and Text based filters.

Dear Biscaygo,

Apparently, you have a corrupted installation of an outdated version. Please download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html


After installing the latest version of Wordfast Pro, just create a new project ("File" menu) and a new translation memory. Then "Open" the source file you want to translate ("File" menu); you can open even Ms Word, Excel, PowerPoint and HTML files directly. Insert the translation in the target cell and move to the next segment using Alt+Down. After finalizing the translation, press Alt+End, "Save", and select "Save Translated file" from "File" menu to have the target translated file in the same original format. That is it!


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

Best regards,
Yasmin Moslem

I'll try that when I finish the project I'm doing now.
