Every time I try to use it, it slows my computer down considerably and it stops aligning always showing the progress bar at around 19%. Other times my computer just completely freezes and even the task manager can't work properly. I've got Windows XP SP3.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Dear Diana,

After you quit it, try to go to File menu > Open Project and select the project file from where you selected to save it. You should be able now to open it without any problem.

Otherwise, you can use PlusTools to align your old translations. For more information, please read this knowledge-base article:

You can also try to use Wordfast Online Aligner:

Log into your Wordfast Anywhere account and then select "Tools" > "Align your files".

The steps are very simple and they are illustrated here:

Thank you, Yasmin. Oct 12, 2011

I will move on to a new computer soon as well, so I hope it will work properly then!

And thanks for reminding me of PlusTools! I have used the aligner and it worked very well, but have forgotten about it in the past few months!
