It should process Visio files, but is uploads them only.
Unable to download translated file.
Any known issues with WFA and Visio?
Any advise?

Hello Yakiv,

Is a file corrupted or too large even ZIPed?

While they mention MS Visio (vsd vdx vsdx) as eligible format for WFA, there's a note:
If you received a VSD file, ask your client to save it as XML Drawing (*.vdx). As of Wordfast Pro v. 3.2, Visio (VDX) files can be translated directly just as any other supported file format without the need to write custom conversion rules. Use File menu > Open to open the file. When you finish translation, use File menu > Save Translated File to get the target file in the same *.vdx format.

Dear DZiW,
Thanks for reply.
Files are normal vsdx files opened in Visio and WFA.
Do you know if vdx files are working with WFA - not WordFast PRO?
Yours
Yakov

View allowed file formats Jan 2, 2020

Hi Yakov.
When we upload a file in the WFA a window appears where it says view allowed file formats. There is also MS Visio vsd vdx vsdx. I suggest you contact the support and ask for their help!
