I have a translation that I completed some time ago without using a CAT tool. Now, I was asked to review it and make the necessary changes since the source text has been modified. I uploaded the new source file in Wordfast as a new project and I was wondering if I could import the translation I have and cross check it against the new source file. All files are in Word. Thanks.

Alignment first Sep 19, 2017

Align your translation with the original source text and upload to your WF TM. Work as a new project with your new source text. Matched segments will show up. Update where required.

If not alignment Sep 19, 2017

Quoi is right, alignment is the proper procedure. However, in my experience, it may be faster and less headache to simply launch a new translation session with the new file, and copy/paste from Word each previously-translated segment and edit as needed, which avoids the alignment step, which is rarely straightforward.
