Hello everyone,

I use Wordfast Anywhere alot, especially when I'm away from my office (and personal laptop), but I had a feature that I've used alot but now won't work and I can't understand why:

I used to be able to download the Bilingual File (unclean version of my translation) at the end of my translation, but now I can't - all that shows up is a docx version of it - that I can get by downloading the finished product anyway! Why the heck can't I get a bilingual file?
Did I click on anything in particular to "deactivate" this?

This is a really important feature for my work, because most of the agencies that I work with need the bilingual file to forward to the revisor/proofreader.

Can I please get a rapid response as it's really bugging me and being a big problem.

Thanks in advance for any answers you can give me.

Best,

Maggie Santos

If you need support for Anywhere, you should ask your questions on the dedicated mailing list, because this is where the main developers are:

You're welcome (I saw you already got a reply)!

If the original file your TXML was created from was not a Word document, you can still create an "uncleaned" Word document from it, using the following workaround:

It involves using both Classic and Pro and is a bit convoluted, but it does work.

And here is another one you can use:

WFP users have to be thankful to Yasmin, for being so resourceful...

Another problem with bilingual files Mar 2, 2012

Hello everyone,

I have the same problem (in Wordfast Anywhere, I want to download an unclean, biligual document using the "Download Bilingual Word File), only with a slight difference: the format of my source documents is .doc, which seems to be the only prerequisite to make this tool work.
On the contrary, all I get is a clean .doc file.
Any idea why??

Thank you in advance!

Are you sure that… Mar 2, 2012

…you’ve opted to download a bilingual file, not a translated file? Describe in more details what you’ve done.

Okay... Mar 2, 2012

I've translated the document and I downloaded the clean file as usual (File > Download Document File).
Then, I clicked on File > Bilingual File Tools > Download Bilingual Word File (Beta).

The result are 2 identical files displaying only the target language!
Thanks again.
