I got a few thousand words I need to finish by tomorrow, and would really appreciate some help on this!:)

I know this is basic, but I was wondering if someone could help me figure out how to translate a .doc-file in Wordfast Pro. If I´ve understood it correctly, Wordfast converts the source .doc file to .txml. But how do I make it do this, and turn back to a .doc file after I´m done translating? How do I go about it, step for step from opening a new project, to get the translated text back in its original .doc file?

Thank you so much for your reply!

There's a manual indeed, but a better starting point for a beginner is the wiki:
