I installed the demo version of Wordfast Pro 5 this morning but I was unable to save the target despite carefully following the instructions; every time I get the file with the correct suffix (FI_en -GB) but the text of file is in the Finnish (source) ☹
I registered for a full trial version as I surmised that this feature was disabled in the demo version. However, I get the same problem. “Save as translated file” gives me a file in the source text (Finnish) rather than the target text (British English).

I am an experienced user of Wordfast Pro3, which has worked very well in the past, but is unstable with my new system (Win 10 Pro).

I really need this to work. I already had to get one deadline extended.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem is? Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Graeme

Hi Graeme,

Sorry you are facing this issue.
Can you email me at jsingaram@wordfast.com so I can check what's going on with your WFP 5 and saving target files.

Thank you,

John
