Translating a html document with WordFast Pro on my Mac, the Danish letters æ, ø, å, appear like this ö. What can I do to avoid this?

Dear Kristensen,

Before opening the source HTML file in Wordfast Pro, open it in any text editor (e.g. NotePad or TextEdit) and:

1- search for charset= and change it into charset=UTF-8 so the whole "meta" tag should look like this (without the two extra spaces):

< meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" >



2- "Save as" > Encoding > UTF-8


Now, you can open the source HTML file in Wordfast Pro and translate; when you Save Translated File, you will get proper HTML file with the correct encoding.


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

How to save the translated file Sep 9, 2010

Thanks for your answer, very use full, until I want to save the program. WordFast Pro does not give me any choice and saves the work as txt. I need to save it as htlm. How can I do that?

Dear Kristensen,

That process has nothing to do with Wordfast Pro. As I said, do that before opening the ***source*** HTML file in Wordfast Pro.

Opening the HTML file in a text editor does not mean that you will save it as txt. It is just opening the HTML file to be able to edit it as mentioned in my previous reply.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.

PHP format Sep 9, 2010

When I saves the file with UTF-8 in TextEdit, the file is named PHP. Opening in WordFast Pro it says that this this format is not supported.
Actually my client sent me the files in this format.
So now is the question, how do I deal with php format?
Thanks for your patience.

Dear Randi,

Was you speaking about an HTML file? Have you tried to change the extension to html? This could be a good trick for *some* php files.

However, this will not work for all php files; so you need to check the result.

If you need more help and like to sent those files for checking, please contact Wordfast Support:

To open a new hotline ticket, log-in (wordfast.net > support > login) with your login email and password mentioned on your invoice. Click on 'Contact the Hotline' and click on 'Hotline/support for Wordfast Professional'. Submit your ticket.
