Does anybody know if I can use WF Pro with a WF 4 (older version) license?

Is it worth it? I am a happy user of WF 4 (older version).

Thanks in advance.

WF Pro and WF Classic have their own license numbers. The WF Pro license number (a .lic file) is based on another system.

If you renewed your WF Classic license recently, you can also retrieve a WF Pro license number.

But WF4 is really VERY old. It keeps functioning as long as you don't change your computer, but lots of features are lacking, compared to WF Classic version 5.

Dear Salvador,

WF 4 (and now 5) is now called WF Classic, and you can download and install the latest version of Wordfast Classic available at:
http://www.wordfast.net/index.php?whichpage=downloadpage

This should not change your license, but you can take down the current numbers, just in case.

On the other hand, Wordfast Pro is another product. You can get it if you renew your license. Renewing your license will cost you only half of the current price after which you will be able to license both Wordfast Pro and Wordfast Classic (before the end of 2010).

To renew your licence, log-in (wordfast.net > support > login) with your login email and password. Click on 'Purchase a renewal'.


Kind regards,
Yasmin
