Found out today that PlusTools could be just what I need. Simple storage of my previous work (aligned pairs of documents). However - and let me confess straight away that I am technically hopeless - when I went to download this free program I found that everything was described as for Word 2007.
Does anyone have experience with PlusTools + Word 2010? (I am doubly handicapped, as my Word headings are all described in German and the Wordfast/PlusTools help uses English terms for the program; e.g. no idea what the German equivalent of Tools/Templates & Add-Ins (Word 2007) is anyway.)
Question two: I imagine that I have to segment the texts before submitting them to alignment? I am not using any techical translation aids in my work.
Thank you so much in advance!

WRT PlusTools, you don't need to segment anything. Just follow the instructions.

As to whether it works under Word 2010, I don't know, and you can ask in the Yahoo group.
