After cleanup I saw that Wordfast Pro "kindly" removed all breaks from the text file! Is there a way to switch off this "feature"? Thanks.

Dear Mlinar,

This is a known issue. In the meanwhile, you can fix it as follows:

- Once you "Save Translated File" in WFP, open the generated TXT in MS Word. It should look perfect.

- Run Find-Replace (Ctrl+H):
Find what: ^p
Replace with: ^p

- Save.

Now, you can see the paragraphs correctly in simple text editors such as NotePad.


I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. I converted my data to Excel file and then exported it after the translation was done.
