5.19 Released

We released Wordfast Pro 5.19 last week, and notable features, improvements, and fixes include:
  • Ability to create SDL Trados return packages
  • Rich text formatting no longer copied to the clipboard as tags
  • Application no longer crashes on Mac when closed
  • Application no longer freezes when left idle on Windows
This version represents noticeable stability improvements, so we strongly encourage you to download and update today.


Custom MT

If you want to test the Custom MT feature in Wordfast Pro (Preferences > Machine Translation > Enable Custom MT), you can use the following credentials:
  • URL: https://mymemory.translated.net/api/get?q={ss}&langpair=fr|en
  • JSON key: translatedText
Please note that you need to change the last part of the string to your language pairs. The URL above would be used for translating from French (fr) into English (en). We have not tested this for all language pairs, so we cannot guarantee it will work for your language pair.


Online Training

We are organizing a 3-part Wordfast Pro training for beginners starting on January 19, 2021. Purchase a new license between now and January 1st, and you will be able to attend the training for freeFind out more and register… 


3, 4, 5, 6…

The next release of Wordfast Pro will be version 6.0. Unlike the user interface makeover that heralded in the change from 4 to 5, version 6 will not represent any major changes. However, we will stop systematically referencing a number after Wordfast Pro, unless we need to specify the exact version or we are talking about our legacy software, Wordfast Pro 3. Furthermore, we updated our website to less prominently feature Wordfast Pro 3, though it can still be downloaded and we will continue to provide hotline support for it.

Thanks for reading and we hope that you have a wonderful holiday season!
