Hello everyone,

Please help me to give me an idea for downloading Wordfast tool after purchasing via Proz. This is my first time to purchase a tool via Proz, so I have not understood how I can start using the tool.

Usually, when I buy a tool through a compan's purchase site, after making a payment via a credit card, I can reach a download site and start translating immediately. I thought that the same applied to purchasing via Proz.

Proz support is not available in this time period, so I hope somebody gives me instructions of what I have to do to start downloading. Thank you for your help in advance.

Hiroko Miyazaki

You should get a separate mail with the details Jan 13, 2011

sales at wordfast.net will send you a mail with a link to your license. You can download you copy of Wordfast from the download section. Install it first, then generate the license.
Regards
Heinrich

Thank you for your clear comment. I need to wait for the compan's mail, don't I? I have patience to wait the mail for several hours .

No need to wait Jan 13, 2011

Wordfast can be downloaded from the official site without any delay. You will need an e-mail only to get license information (a license number for WF Classic or a license file for WF Pro). If you don’t receive the e-mail within 2 or 3 days, file a support ticket here, on ProZ.com.

I understand that I can get a demo version via official download. I think I have to wait more for the license to come. Thank you.

Not really a demo Jan 13, 2011

What you download, is not exactly a demo. It is a fully functional version. The only limitation is the translation memory size: without a license it will be approximately 500 translation units max. All other WF functions are available.

However, if you want to start working, you can do it now. The above limitation lets you even complete a small to medium project. And after receiving a license number, you need to input it and reorganize your TM, but you job will not interrupt.

Well, just go and download! And good luck with WF!
