Hola.

Me he descargado la versión de prueba pues nunca lo había usado, he estado viendo un tutorial y haciendo todo lo que me dicen y no me da traducción, ¿Por qué puede ser, es porque es una versión de prueba?

Gracias

Cristina

You need to feed your CAT Aug 12, 2016

Hola, Cristina.

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

For Translation Memory features see:

A CAT is an investment in every way Aug 12, 2016

In time, it will start finding segments that you've translated before and so it will start proposing them to you. It will also remind you of terms in the glossaries you've linked to it. And it will perform any number of QA checks as per your instructions.

You can use the full features of Wordfast for unlimited time. You have all the capabilities. But your size of TM is severely restricted. So, just when it starts being most useful you'll find it will pay you to get rid of that limit. You'll lose nothing and will get an immediate ROI. Even if you don't get a whole load of matches (I don't in marketing texts) it's still useful.

Just don't let agencies take all the savings and leave you with no ROI at all.

Use the Machine Translation feature Aug 12, 2016

If you need a machine translation using Wordfast, you should enable the Machine Translation feature. To do that:

Edit > Preferences > Translations > Machine translations (Machine Translation behavior, select Always perform MT translations), next choose a MT service provider (I think the only service provider that does not require a client identification is WorldLingo).

Next clic con Apply > OK.

Good look with the machine translation!
