Hi all,
I use a Mac Book, Office for Mac, and I have the latest version of Wordfast.
By mistake I removed one of my glossaries in the terminology list. I tried to import it again but the file looks "older", it does not have many of the new words I added over the last year. Is it lost forever?
Am I missing something?
Cheers

.wf_workspace > glossaries Aug 3, 2011

Step 1: Showing hidden files:

1- Open a Terminal (you can search it in Finder)

2- Type:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

3- Press Enter

4- Type:

killall Finder

The first line changes the setting in Finder. The second line closes all open Finder windows, so that Finder will restart with the new configuration the next time you open a new window.

Step 2: Finding .wf_workspace > glossaries:

1- You can find the .wf_workspace folder under the following path:

Users/(whatever is your user name)/

2- Open the "glossaries" folder; if you have the latest version of WFP, you should find the glossary in the txt format.

3- Export the txt into your terminolgoy list of WFP.


I hope this helps. Please let me know.


Kind regards,
Yasmin (WF)

almost there Aug 3, 2011

Dear Yasmin,
Your instructions are great! I got to the "glossaries" and there are about 30 folders. Each folder has 4 files in it called:
_3.cfs (this name varies for different folders)
glossary_config
segments_9 (this name varies for different folders)
segments.gen

none are txt

Am I in the right track?
Thank you so much
M

Which version? Aug 3, 2011

Hello,

What is your WFP version (Help menu > About Wordfast)? If you really use the latest version, you should find txt files in the folder "glossaries" itself with the same names as the sub-folders (NOT in them). Cannot you see any txt files in the "glossaries" folder itself?

If not, please zip the "glossaries" folder and send to me, and you will need to upgrade to the latest version as well.

Please let me know.

Kind regards,
Yasmin (WF)

If you want to update a glossary you already selected in WFP, check "Import into existing glossary", select the existing glossary into which you want import the terms of the other glossary, and the way you want WFP to deal with source terms that already exist.
- A message will appear telling you about the number of terms that will be imported. An "imported successfully" message should appear.
- Now, you can use the imported glossary, as usual.


To avoid that in the future, please download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
