Where do I find Wordfast Aligner in Wordfast Pro?
I need to make a TM out of a large source document and my equally large target document. Wordfast on line help gives instructions for doing this using Wordfast Aligner, which they say is an "add-on"- Where can this add on be found and once found how is it installed?

Thanks,
Rick Sanders

Perhaps your collapsable menu collapsed. Expand it - Aligner should be there.

A few tips Oct 16, 2011

I can't find it either, and I have the latest release.

I found these discussions:

http://www.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/191654-wordfasr_pro_aligner.html
http://www.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/190885-wordfast_pro_alignment.html
http://www.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/188549-wordfast_alignment_software_included_in_pro+classic_package.html

I know that Wf Anywhere (the free, web-based version of Wf) has a built-in aligner, but I've never used it.

There are several other online aligners, too.

Good luck.

installed automatically Oct 16, 2011

If you have a recent version of Wordfast Pro then you will have automaically installed Aligner (at least, I did). Its under Wordfast in Programs.

Thanks to all of you! But new problem has emerged-please help if you can. Oct 16, 2011

Thank you all!
I found it, but now when I try to create a new in Wordfast Aligner following the relevant step in the manual Aligner does not recognize my file paths. If any of you knows why, please let me know.

Regards,
Rick

Thanks again- I solved the file path problem, now to solve "java.lang.NullPointerException" Oct 16, 2011

Of course a new hurdle has appeared ..."java.lang.NullPointerException" , but I will search the forum to see if this problem has been answered already.

Best,
Rick

File formats Oct 16, 2011

Dear Richard,

Maybe it is a file type issue. Wordfast Aligner supports TXML, DOC, PPT and XLS file formats. So, if you have Office 2007 documents, it is better to convert them first.

Another tip: create two folders one for source and another for a target and put the file in relevant folders. This should make creating a project easier.

HTH,
Yasmin

Yasmin - how about WF doing a free webinar on Align? Manual leaves much to be desired. Oct 16, 2011

Thank Yasmin, I was already able to figure that out from a previous post which you answered. However, once I finally succeeded in creating the file, I found the process of matching the segments very frustrating.

It would be great if WF would offer a free webinar on this process, since the instructions in the manual leave much to be desired.

Best,
Rick

Wordfast documentation Aug 15, 2013

In general Wordfast documentation, and in particular for the later versions, is of poor quality. The current question about the localization of Aligner is so basic that it must appear in some place in the Wordfast documents. It seems the documentation is done by programmers, not by practical users.
