I reformatted my PC last week and reinstalled WF Classic and Office 2013. Today I'm trying to translate an Excel file and WFC for the first time with the new setup and it doesn't appear to be working. I proceed in the same way as I used to with earlier versions of WFC / Office: Open up a copy of the Excel file, then a Word document, do the select and click thing... And nothing happens.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there another step that I'm missing out with new MS Office version?

Excel & PowerPoint work up to Office 2010 Jul 13, 2015

No, you are not missing anything: Microsoft has removed the feature that allowed Wordfast to communicate with Excel and PowerPoint from all versions of Office newer than 2010. That includes Office 2011 (Mac), Office 2013 (Windows) and any other newer version. You will have to get a copy of Office 2010 (or older) if you wish to translate Excel/PowerPoint documents the "old-fashioned" way.

So Wordfast Pro would allow me to work on Powerpoint and Excel?

Sure: Wordfast Pro (and Anywhere) supports a number of file formats, including PowerPoint and Excel.
