Wordfast Pro 5 "Copy Source, Tags and Term Translations" problem...

Hello fellow Wordfast Pro users,

I'm having problems with the "Copy Source, Tags and Term Translations" function (regardless of the source file type). When I select it from the menu and the source term contains tags (or parentheses, brackets, hyphens, or other non-letter characters) like in this example from a table of contents:

1.0(Tag1)(Tag2)(Tag1)Öffentliche Forschungsförderung(Tag3)10

and I select the various copy source commands, I get the following in the target:

Copy Source: Target contains exact copy of source, as it should.
Copy Source text: Target contains exact copy of source without tags, as it should
Copy Source, Tags, and Term Translations: Target is messed up with a mix of German/English terms and missing text:

1.0(Tag1)(Tag2)(Tag1)Öffentlichepublic (Tag3)

instead of:

1.0(Tag1)(Tag2)(Tag1)public Forschungsförderung(Tag3)10

This happens regardless of whether "Enable fuzzy term recognition" is enabled or disabled, and seriously slows me down when translating, especially in segments with lots of tags and other non-letter characters.

I sent an email to support a while back when Wordfast Pro 4 was released and they responded saying they have noted the problem and will fix it in an upcoming release, but were at 5.0.7 now and I still have the problem.

Am I the only one with this problem?

Thanks
Dave

No answer? Aug 16, 2017

Looks like I have to switch back to Wordfast Pro 3 until this issue gets resolved....

Still having issues... Aug 17, 2017

Hello,

I am using WPro 5.1.0, but am still having issues, unfortunately. Instead of:

1.0(Tag1)(Tag2)(Tag1)Öffentlichepublic (Tag3)

I now get:

1.0(Tag1)(Tag2)(Tag1)ÖffentlichepublicForschungsförderung(Tag3)10

Better, but not quite there yet. Maybe in WPro 5.1.1?

Thanks,

Dave Pape
