I've only begun using Wordfast recently, and my agency clients are sending me Wordfast txml files with txt file for TMs. I'm somewhat embarassed but can anyone tell me how to use these txt TM files for use in Wordfast? I know I'm supposed to use the txt file TMs in Wordfast for consistency and faster work. But I just don't know how because I'm not too sufficient in using Wordfast. I'd really appreciate if anyone can tell me how to use txt TM files for Wordfast, and also some general tips on using Wordfast would be much appreciated too. I'm just a novice in using Wordfast. Thanks a million!

On WordFast Pro Help file, TM handling is explained clearly. See also http://tam.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/145454-problems_importing_wordfast_classic_tm_and_glossary_into_wordfast_pro.html
for import of WordFast Classic or *.tmx format TM.

Are you working with Wordfast Classic or Wordfast Pro? Which version?

Meanwhile, you can read the topic http://www.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/127511-wordfast_60:_txml_file_conversions_and_other_formating_issues.html - hth.
