“Wordfast helps me to remember what I have already translated, it has made my glossaries a valuable and customized resource, and has helped me to develop my language boutique business over the years. I particularly enjoy attending the Wordfast Forward conferences every year and seeing the other translators from around the world along with the software developers, who often are translators themselves and have developed the suite of Wordfast programs. In addition, you get to chat with Yves, the company founder… See you in Puerto Rico next year!”
