I have upgraded to version 3.3.3, and now I am getting again too often the message about TM not leveraged because of an "ampersand" when the whole cell does not contain even one ampersand. It destroys the workflow, and is very annoying, and I do not understand why it creeps up again, as it did in the first Wordfast Pro versions.

Hi Dr.Phil,

Where did the TM come from? Are you using WFClassic TM with WFPro 3.3? Can you copy the exact error message you are seeing regarding ampersand here?

The issue could be TM came from some other tool, in WFPro TM ampersand is escaped i.e & in TM should be written as &'26; that might be causing the issue.

Thank you,

John

Thank you Feb 11, 2014

Hi John,

the TM came from an agency (a download of a remote one). I will just remove it. By the way I use Wordfast Pro 3.3. without any bells. Classic does not enter.

Thank you very much for your answer.
