I'm having this issue with wordfast Pro. Every time I try to do a word count when translating EN to FR, I get this error message: "No active TM Server, create new or select an existing one". I click "okay", and the "remote TM properties" page opens up. As I am not working from a remote TM, I don't add in a TM html address, and the problem repeats itself.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dear David,

So, when you contacted me, you did not mention this message.

Please go to Translation Memory > New/Select TM > LOCAL, and make sure that your TM is marked as "Selected".

Even if you want it to be "Read Only", it should be "Selected" as well.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.
