Hello fellow translators and members of the ProZ community:

I work at an agency that uses WordFast, and I have been having some difficulty connecting to the TM. Our technician told me that I need to change the location (which can be accessed by clicking the Translation Memory tab at the top of the screen, then New/Select TM; then, after the Preferences box pops up, clicking on TM List on the left-hand side of the Preferences box, and Location is under TM Properties).

Does anyone know how to alter the location?

Thank you in advance.

Which Wordfast? Feb 17, 2017

I don't know the answer to this, but I think you could provide more help by specifying which Wordfast you are referring to: Wordfast Classic, Wordfast Professional or Wordfast Anywhere ?

(Classic is a giant macro that runs within Microsoft Word (it's the Wordfast that I use); Professional is a stand-alone program; WF Anywhere is "in the cloud" and accessed via the browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox etc.) on your computer. "Connecting to the TM" suggests it is probably WF Anywhere.
