Import Package

Using the Import Package option, a Package file can be imported into Wordfast Pro. These are files exported from another Wordfast Pro installation. When a Package file is imported, Wordfast Pro connects to the translation memories and glossaries and gives you access to all the translatable files and additional resources. This eliminates the need for a manual project set up. Refer to Package Files for more information on Package file contents.

To import a package on the Projects tab:

  1. Click Import Package or drag and drop a Package file into the white space in the body of the window.
  2. On the Import Package dialog, click Browse to locate and select the Package file.
  3. Click one of the following options:
    • Update A Current Project: Select an existing project to update with the imported Package file. Select one of the update options:

    • Create New Project: Select to create a new project. Enter the new project details:

      • Project Name: Enter a unique name for the project.

      • Location: The location of the Package file is displayed as the default location. Click Browse... and select a location to save the new project in.

  4. (Optional) Select Open project after importing to open the updated or new project when the import completes.
