This course is for anyone who wants to learn more about translation software in general, and gain enough basic skills to begin working with Wordfast. The course will begin with an introduction into different translation memory software and components; basic functions such as segmentation, alignment, glossary and TM; and the many benefits for the translator. TM software is not just for translating updated editions of previously translated documents. It can help you manage your time and translate text embedded in html code, maintain consistency throughout your translations, and much more.

This course requires a working understanding of Microsoft Word, and an installed trial version of Wordfast.

You're allowed up to 500 translation memory units with the FREE version of Wordfast.
