I'm using the Demo version of Wordfast Pro. Probably it's my ignorance, but I can't find any way of viewing the entire contents of a TM and editing units (eg changing typos). I can search a TM to find specific units, but I want to be able to view every unit in a list, to proofread them and make edits where required.

Or in Word, or in Excel. All software which can read and produce txt files can be used. Note that units which begin with x have been overwritten by another unit.
Or better, you can use Wordpad Classic for this, it has its own TM management part.

Excel should be used with cautious when editing a Wordfast TM. You may find quotes will be added around your segments and if you have very long segments, they will be truncated.

Wordfast Classic's data editor is a better and safer choice. So is Olifant (http://okapi.sourceforge.net/downloads.html).
