"Wordfast Pro 3 - Good for starters and light Project Management"

What do you like best?

Nice out of the box simple options and fast to configure by project.

Like the fast that it is also usable on Linux and I can use Wordfast Anywhere in case of emergency.

What do you dislike?

Spellchecker, Transcheck with Terminology could come out with extra options.

Even the latest version, Wordfast Pro does not support DeepL Machine Translation yet (Wordfast Anywhere only).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Does not handle multilingual glossaries.

Not intuitive use of tables in Project Management view when importing/exporting tables modified with changes

Benefits: able to use for freelance projects with minimum learning curve compared to other products. Good value for money.

"The best platform I have used"

What do you like best?

I have worked in the translation business since 2007 and have tried a variety of software solutions. What I like best of Wordfast is:

1) it's Mac compatible

2) gives you a solid, easy-to-use experience

3) user friendly interface: everything is clear, I like the layout and how things are organized. It's fast and everything always works perfectly.

I have been able to work with ease and simplicity on large, heavily formatted documents that other software solutions handled very badly.

The use of colors in the editor is awesome. It all adds up to the sense of tidiness and ease of use.

What do you dislike?

For sure I would love the software licence to not expire after 3 years.. but this is the company policy. This is no good for occasional translators: the purchase is worth the price ONLY if you do have a good amount of work to justify for the expense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can handle big formatted files more easily than I have done with other software. Glossaries are easy to create and to use

What Translation Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Why Wordfast and not Trados?"

What do you like best?

Mac compatible, fast, light, uncluttered. Cost effective, real-time quality check, complete integration with Word, great customer support.

What do you dislike?

Despite being light, Wordfast can be a little unresponsive, and file processing is a bit too slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Despite what they would have you believe, Trados is not the only choice, even when working with Trados files. There is a native compatibility between Wordfast and Trados which allows a Wordfast user to work on virtually any Trados project and produce segmented files that look and behave just like Trados’ own segmented files. However, Wordfast is not a mere clone for Trados, and frankly, it is a much better tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was looking for a CAT tool compatible with macOS, that was lightweight and easy to use. Wordfast checks all those boxes.

Translation. The benefits is translating faster using the TM

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

Wordfast is easy to use, you can optionally use machine translation and access a large amount of public read-only translation memory. It is a simple and intuitive interface.

What do you dislike?

In fact I don´t dislike at all. It is really easy to use and I like the confidentiality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is easy to use, keeps the confidentiality of all you files and memories. Glossaries are accessible "in the cloud".

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can create a translation memory at any time and host it in your server and start storing segments.

"7 years + experience translator (more than 5 years using Wordfast)"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, can connect to the TM of the client easily, repetitions and fuzzy matches are displayed with different colors to be identified easily

What do you dislike?

Acceptance of file types. It would be good if it could be compatible with Trados and MemoQ.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good tool. Used by many clients so if your client works with Wordfast I recommend to purchase it and even if he doesn´t it is a good tool to have to work with new clients.
