I recently started Wordfast so that I am not too savvy with Wordfast so far.

I got a small size translation project (Eng to Jpn).
I have completed the translation. Right now I have the following files:

(The file for translation (sent by the client): ABC.doc (Word format))

The files created with Wordfast:

-Copy of ABC_JA.doc (Word format)
-Segmented File_ABC.properties (both in PROPERTIES and Txml Document)
-ABC.doc (Txml Doc

Now, I was told by the client to submit a segmented file.

I surveyed on segmented file with no luck. The only thing I received is the below link.

http://www.wordfast.net/?kb=164-35

The link is of Wordfast Classic so that I have to buy both PRO and Classic, which I am not expecting.

I would like to know:

1) How to get a segmented file with Wordfast only.

2) In case I have to go back to Trados Freelance 2009, with SDL Trados Studio 2009 and SDL Trados 2007, how can I create a segmented file?



Your suggestion and comments will be highly appreciated.

As the link says:

Download and install the latest version of Wordfast Classic (even the demo version)

This means the demo version is sufficient for the purpose of converting a translated TXML into a bilingual Word document.
