Wordfast Pro is the only major commercial TM tool on the market that runs natively on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Wordfast Pro offers users the ability to choose either a tag mark-up editor or WYSIWIG (what you see is what you get) editor based on personal preference. Proficiency is made virtually instantaneous by offering users customizable shortcut key bindings including pre-configured shortcut key maps for all major TM systems.
Target-only Live Preview
After translating your document, proofread a target-only version with layout and formatting in Wordfast Pro. Click on a segment in the preview you need to change and you are brought directly to the segment in the bilingual TXLF file for faster editing.
Wordfast Pro allows you to filter segments based on terms, regular expressions, match scores, notes, and other attributes.
Multilingual Translation Projects
Wordfast Pro allows you to configure a multilingual translation package when you need to translate into multiple target languages. The project can then be sent as a single package or separate packages based on language pairs. There are no language limits or restrictions in the licensed version (the demo version is limited to bilingual projects).
Export and Import Translation Packages
Wordfast Pro allows you to configure and export translation packages for fast, seamless translation management. Your translators can simply drag and drop to import the package, translate the files, and export for round-trip delivery. You can also directly import SDL Trados packages.
Support for Multiple File Formats
Wordfast Pro enables you to translate virtually any file format, including MS Office, Adobe InDesign, FrameMaker, PDF, HTML, XML, SDL Trados Xliff, MemoQ Xliff, and more!
Wordfast Pro allows you to chain multiple files into a single file to improve the consistency of repeated segments and facilitate file management.
Advanced Time-Saving Features
Work faster and more efficiently with several powerful time-saving features including advanced segment filtering, locking segments, and high-speed batch processing.
Unlimited TM and Glossary Access
Wordfast Pro enables users to access an unlimited number of TMs and Glossaries simultaneously. Users can also prioritize TMs as primary or secondary.
Integration with Machine Translation
Wordfast Pro integrates with multiple MT engines enabling users to leverage machine translations when there are no translation memory matches. Users can also assign penalties to machine translated content.
Real-Time Quality Assurance (Transcheck)
Wordfast Pro’s Transcheck feature verifies elements in your translation and warns about potential errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, numbers, terminology consistency, and placeables as you type.
