Hi all,
Has anybody already worked with WF Classic or WF Anywhere while the agency required WF Pro, providing and requesting txml files? Can it be done?
Thanks.
Audrey

Workaround Sep 30, 2015

Wordfast Classic cannot translate TXML files directly. However, you can do it indirectly, using the following workaround. Note that this can be tedious if the TXML has a lot of tags.

Anywhere can handle txml Sep 30, 2015

WF Anywhere can handle TXMLs and even connect to clients' remote TM servers so I'd go that route.

Thanks! Oct 1, 2015

Thank you both for your answers. I will give it a try at see how it goes.
Jenae, do you think I might encounter issues with the limited capacity of WF Anywhere to handle long TM files ?

Wordfast Anywhere can handle TM’s of just any size. Where did you see this "limited capacity"?

In Anywhere, there is a limit to the maximum size of the documents you can upload, but there are ways around this limitation.

Great news Oct 1, 2015

Thank you Dominique.
It's the agency who mentioned this limited capacity, but they were not sure and me neither... That's great news!

Limitations in Wordfast Anywhere Oct 1, 2015

Check the limitations here:

The size of TM’s is actually limited to 1 million units, but it’s unlikely you run into it in practice.
