I think the limit is 500 translation units. Can I use the tool after that without crashing the system or my current translation ?

I believe that you cannot use the services of Wordfast until you will buy licence...

If I do remember, that's right (500 units). You can then use the tool without crashing, but the TM will not be more alimented. So, not very effective.

Good evening !

AFAIK, after reaching the 500 TU limit, you simply have to create/open a new TM. You can use the latter until you reach the 500 TU limit again.

Nevertheless, I recommend buying this excellent CAT.

At a certain point you'll get an error message and WF will stop working Jul 26, 2010

At a certain point you'll get an error message and WF will stop working. But your TM will be safe and your translation will be fine up to that point. If your file is bigger than 500 segments and you want to complete it, simply create a new, blank TM, and continue to use the program.

Once you reach the limit you can still manage the TM, you just can't translate documents. So you can merge several TMs into one and use it as the BTM (there's no limit to the BTM size) and continue using smaller (less than 500 TUs) TMs for your operating TM. The BTM won't be updated but it will be drawn on for matches.
