Hi,

I used to be able to translate from Excel 2010 using WC 3.0t but now, using the latest version and Excel/Word 2013 it just doesn't work.
I followed the same steps as before (below) but nothing happens.
Please help!
Thanks,
Monica

Open the Excel or PowerPoint file you want to translate.
- Place the cursor on the first cell or slide with which you want to start translation.
- Create a new MS Word document and save it.
- Now, you can start translation pressing Alt+Down. Remember that the Excel/PowerPoint file is still open, but we will work in the Word document.
- As you can notice, the text of the first cell/slide has been inserted in the Word document as a new open segment.
- In the Word document, write the translation in the target cell and then move to the next segment using Alt+Down, as usual.
- In the open Excel/PowerPoint file, you can notice that the translation has replaced the source text.

Yes, it won't work with Office 2013. It has been mentioned several times before, for instance here. You'll have to use Wordfast Pro, or Wordfast Anywhere, or some other tool that supports the PPT/PPTX format.

As described here - alternative method #2 and be sure to read the "potential issue" section!
