Hello,
Is it possible to upload a document to the target section? I have a pdf (source) and a msword doc (target) and I want to upload them into wordfast anywhere to revise.

Thanks.

No Nov 13, 2016

No, you can't. There is no target section. You probably should align the document to produce a translation memory and re-translate / review the source file using the TM.

Why use a CAT? Nov 13, 2016

There may well be a good reason - I use my CAT in a very limited way, the only way I know. But if there's no source, there's no TM, surely. Wouldn't Word's Track Changes function do the job in a simpler way?

Reason is simple Nov 13, 2016

The reason is pretty simple: you'll produce a TM that will be used for future translations or reviews. Besides, most CAT tools present (and can export) translation projects in a fashion such as a bilingual table that is better for reviewing as you are not distracted by formatting / layout peculiarities.

Thanks for the replies. I have the source file and the translated text. I have the revise it. I can upload the source file to WFA. Can I also upload the translated text to the right side of so I can revise easily.

A MS Word table? Nov 14, 2016

I'm afraid you cannot do it with WFA, but why not use a simple table in MS Word with two columns? Or to display the two files side-by side?

Another way you could align the two files and work with the output file (two columns).
