Wordfast PlusTools: I can not create a TM...

Good day,

I have an issue with the PlusTools from Wordfast: I was able to install them properly, it works and I can even align two files. Once aligned, the issue is that I can't export the TM, which is very frustrating. In my company, the only person who can do it is working on Windows XP. Everybody else working here on Windows 7 just can't export their TM...

The error message that we get, once we click on "Create TM" is "The document with the aligned table should be open, and only in this document." But we do NOT have any other document opened... this is really weird and a pity, since this tool is quite quick/useful.

Any idea?

Thanks a lot in Advance!

Best regards,
Nicolas

PS: I just reproduced the same problem at home, also with Windows 7...

Windows 7 vs. XP shouldn't matter to PlusTools. What does matter is the Word version. As stated on the download page: "PC/Windows with Word 97/2000/2002/2003 only."

I personally don't use PlusTools for alignment, so I can only refer to this article: http://www.wordfast.net/?kb=139-27

The development of PlusTools stopped years ago. Their are several good and actively developed aligners out there, for instance the Wordfast Online Aligner included in Wordfast Anywhere and LF-Aligner, both of which are free. Have you tried them?

Hi,

we had actually an outdated version of the PlusTools at my company... I redownloaded the file from the official website and fiiit problem solved... Our admin forgot to download the latest version... I trusted this guy too much!

Thank you for your comment anyway!

And for those with the same issue... download the latest version!

Best regards,
Nicolas
