Has anyone tried/succeeded in uploading a file for translation to Wordfast Anywhere by a URL link?

This option is given on WF Anywhere in order to enable functionality on an iPad, something I was looking forward to (not having to carry my laptop around with me when travelling) - however I have not been able to do it yet. I've tried uploading from links created by cloud storage resources like Dropbox, CloudOn and MediaFire but it doesn't work. I am not sure how else to create a link, would I need to create a page of my own?

The only way I've been able to successfully use Anywhere on the iPad so far is by copying and pasting a word document into the work area.

Anyone got any tips?

Hi Ben,

Can you send me the URL to the file you are trying to open privately?

WFA- extra convenience May 11, 2013

While at home I upload the doc to WFA. Then wherever I go, once I get access to a computer, I can login at freetm.com and start processing, so once done I proofread download and send it to the agency.
Alternately If I stay at home for long times ( may days), I work on WFP3.1.5 and finish the job.

Away from home May 13, 2013

Thanks for the tip Srini, however I'll be using WFA on the iPad when travelling away from home for many weeks at a time (without my laptop - that's why I bought the iPad), so will not be able to upload on my computer.
