I am trying the wordfast for the first time and I have difficulties in automatic translation. Sometimes I can, others I have to type everything, because target field is empty. Can somebody help me?

Translation memory? Aug 23, 2004

I think you must have a translation memory for the autotranslate to work, otherwise there will be no references to be found. And the translation memory is for you to create. Wordfast is only helping you NOT to have to translate the same sentence twice, once it's done, it's in the memory and will pop up next time you need it.

good luck!
