I work in a translation agency and we are currently using WordfastPro 4 (we are in the beginning of a 3-year license and do not want to change CAT tools at the moment).

The problem we are having is that we are not able to use the same TMs simultaneously. We were able to do so in WordfastPro 3.

Now, I know that Wordfast Server is an option and have already tested the demo version and quoted a price.

However, I would like to know what other options I have regarding a server to host Remote TMs that is compatible with WordfastPro 4.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Update: Wordfast Anywhere as a Server for Remote TMs Feb 15, 2017

Quick update, in case anyone is interested:

You can use Wordfast Anywhere to host a Remote TM for Wordfast Pro users.

I was able to so without any trouble in Wordfast Pro 3.

I am still running into some problems doing it with Wordfast Pro 4 and so I created another post to see if anyone can shed some light regarding that specific issue.

Wordfast Anywhere seems like a free alternative to Wordfast Server, it seems much slower than Wordfast Server (particularly if you are using Wordfast Pro 3 and a large file), but if you are not ready to invest in Wordfast Server, it might meet your needs.
