Basic for me Jan 31, 2014

I use and like WF Basic. It is reasonably affordable can be used offline, which is a big plus for me, as my wifi connection sometimes crashes. I tried out WF Pro, which has more features, and found I didn't like its interface so much, so I went back to WF Basic.

The official name for the product you call (perhaps tongue in cheek?) Wordfast "Basic" is Wordfast Classic icon_wink.gif

Classic and Pro are sold for the same price. If Pro were a superset of Classic, no one would buy Classic (or only crazy people, masochists etc.). However, there are people buying both (either separately or together), so they must see benefits in Classic too.

Since you are French, the Classic vs. Pro debate is a bit like the querelle des Anciens et des Modernes...
