Translating with Wordfast Classic 6 in Word 2011 on a Mac

This video shows how Wordfast Classic 6.02u “looks and feels” when used in Word 2011 (14.1.4) on a Mac (Oct-2010 MacBook Air with 4 GB of RAM running OS X 10.6.8 aka Snow Leopard).
Basic operations such as moving between segments is very fast (as fast on a Windows PC) compared to previous versions of Word for Mac (eg. Word 2004).

    I have just installed Wordfast Classic 6 and I am also using Office 2011 for Mac. But in my case it’s very slow ! It takes around 10 seconds to change segment. Can you please advice?

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Torill,

      My guess is that there was an older version of Office (eg. 2008 or 2004) prior to installing 2011. If so, you need to clean “leftovers” from the older version, see this troubleshooting article for details.

      You can also try to create a new user account in OS X, and then install Wordfast Classic under that account. Speed will most likely be acceptable, which will confirm there’s something wrong with your existing account.

      Best regards,
