Hi, everybody!

Has anyone ever tried to use Wf Anywhere for memories in different language combinations? If so, what is to be done when registering for the account? I stopped going on when I had to enter the languages for the memory, as it gives you only one chance. Once I've created the memory i, say. EN-IT, should I repeat the procedure for the combination DE-IT after logging in with my credentials?

Thanks in advance for your replies, if any.icon_confused.gif

3 pairs Jul 25, 2012

I have used WFA for translation in 3 language pairs and see no problem with it. You need only to properly set up your TMs/glossaries, no need to create a new account.

If you face any problem, you’d better provide a better description of it.

Multiple language pairs possible, but only one is active Jul 26, 2012

You can create TM's (and glossaries) in as many language directions as you want, but only one of them will be active at any given time. The active language direction is surrounded by a red frame, as shown here:

WFA,%20language%20pairs.png

Four language directions have been defined in that account, the active one being Russian>Slovak.

OK! Jul 30, 2012

Thanks a lot, Dominique. I'am getting started with Wf anywhere and I'am sure I'll ask some more questions now and then.
Happy translating!

I strongly recommend you subscribe to the dedicated mailing list. It's where the developers hang out, so you will get more expert answers there.

precious tip Jul 30, 2012

Thanks a lot for the precious tip. I also happened to watch some of your "tutorials" on you tube and I received an answer to some more questions. Now I've just to experiment it all by myself.

It would be grate if WFA remained for free...

No plans to stop free WFA Aug 3, 2012

I'm not aware of any plans to stop the availability of WFA for free: WFA will continue to be free, in its current form and with its current feature set. Were a paid version be introduced at a later stage, it would be a premium version with features that are not currently available.
