The source file format is a Word file. It has two columns, one for source and the other target text.
Does the source file also have two columns when you open it in Word? Or does it have two columns when you view it inside Wordfast Pro 5?
Or: It is my understanding that if the source file is a Word file with a table in it with two columns, then both columns will be loaded into WFP5 as translatable, so you should end up with a final file in Word that has two columns and the translation in both columns. Is that what happened?
I had finished my translation on Wordfast 5 Pro. My problem now is the file that I saved has only one column, which is target file. I need the bilingual as the final file.
It is possible that you had used the "Get MS Word Table" button on the File tab in TXLF Editor view.
This is a longshot, but: it may be that you should have used the "bilingual export", which is available in the Quick Tools. Click the Quick Tools icon, then go to the Bilingual Export tab, and drag-and-drop the TXLF file onto it, and press the Export Bilingual Files button. If the file name is too long (you'll get a cryptic error message), drag-and-drop the folder that the TXLF file is in.
