Why are you surprised? Feb 6, 2008

I haven't tried it myself, but I know for sure some translators use Wf for Linux. Have a look here:

o, it's crossover Feb 6, 2008

I get it it now. But if this can be called WF for linux then there is MS Offce for Linux as wellicon_smile.gif))) And Adobe Photoshop too as it runs on Wine... almost.
Misuse of the word "supported" I think.

Wordfast is programmed in MS Word's macro language. As such, the core code is platform-independent. Strictly speaking, there is no "Wordfast for Linux", and no "Wordfast for Windows", either.

Still crossing my fingers... Feb 7, 2008

I actually talked to the creator of WF at a conference in Portugal and he said that there is a version in the works that will work directly with Open Office. If that happens, I may finally get rid of Windows altogethericon_smile.gif

The page doesn't say that there is a WF for Linux. It says that WF has been known to work on Linux. There are no separate versions of WF for Windows and OSX either.

Marc has a very good point, although a rather technical one for all practical purposes.

I hope you're right, because this is a major stumbling block for me with translation on the Mac... I'd like to work with native OS X software, but the new Office for Mac doesn't support VisualBasic any more.

Of course, Open Office isn't native to Mac either, strictly speaking, but nevertheless perks along pretty well...

that's what i thought Feb 7, 2008

When I saw the penguin on the WF site, that was exactly what I hoped for: WF for OO.
It would be great if it happened.
