Excel translation problem

Hi there!
I am recently working with couple of other students on a school project that needs a translation of 1000 words from English to a few other languages and we were hoping WordFast will give us a hand. Unfortunately, no luck so far.
The problem we're experiencing is of the following:
We've put the 1000 words in an Excel sheet and followed this video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UsPYscWH5A
We're doing it absolutely the same way as in the video and when we hit "Translate all" the application starts it's thing, goes until the end and when finished - nothing appears in the column where the translation is supposed to be.
We've tried OS X, Win, Ubuntu - same thing on all. After finishing the process - no translation appears where it is supposed to be.

I would really appreciate some help guys, because our deadline is approaching and we're about to fail.

I can also provide the excel file if someone is willing to do it for us, that would be awesome!!!

What TM do you use? Jun 20, 2016

Have you checked the TM? Maybe it's empty or hasn't been linked to the project?
If you have no TM entries and no MT engine connected, you won't get any translation, so you'll have to translate everything once more (or for the first time).

Good luck!

As for the MT engine - I choose WordLingo... Not sure about the TM entries, what are those?
Can you be more specific please?

You need to feed your CAT Jun 21, 2016

CAT tools do not translate, they only store your translations and may provide machine translations as well.
