Hi,

I'm using wordfast 3.35 (can't afford the paid versions at the moment) to translate from Japanese to English. There is often no space after the fullstop. However when there is no space after the fullstop, the following happens, for example:

テスト。テスト。 (test.test.) will be split in to

テスト。 (test.)
テ     will be skipped, and the next segment is just
スト。

yielding a translation of test.

does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks!

It was one of the problems of some of the WF 3 versions. Much research has been done since then, which fully justifies the price you pay for it. Developers have to eat too.

Edited for typo.
And I agree with Dominique hereunder.

The last 3.35 build was released in September 2002. It is unlikely you will get any support or suggestions for a version almost 10 years old. Use Wordfast Anywhere (www.freetm.com) if you can't afford the current version of Classic.
