Wordfast End User License Agreement (EULA)
See an important annoucement for teleworkers during the COVID-19 crisis in clause III, section on "Corporations" further below.
This agreement is for paid licenses. For free or discounted licenses, refer to the email that delivered the license for terms and conditions.
This agreement is short and legible ~ please read carefully. This EULA is a legal agreement between you,
the customer, and Wordfast LLC. By purchasing Wordfast's software products you agree to be bound
by the terms and conditions herein.
The software designates Wordfast Classic
(a translation tool designed as an add-on to Microsoft Word),
or Wordfast Professional (a platform-independent suite of translation tools),
or a bundle of the two known as Wordfast Translation Studio.
Terms and conditions
Licenses to use the software include, from date of purchase:
- the right to install and run the software;
- email support (e-hotline) for three years;
- free upgrades to new releases(1) of the software for three years;
- a right to relicense(2) the software to keep it running for three years.
(1)A new release means a new version of the software which
has substantial new functionality and which is designated by a change in the version number.
(2)If you format your hard disk, change your Operating System, or migrate to another computer, you might have to apply for re-licensing by logging into your user account at this site (www.wordfast.net) and/or contacting the hotline. This process is free for three years from the date of purchase, and can be repeated as needed to keep your installation of Wordfast running during those three years. Please see additional licensing instructions at https://www.wordfast.net/wiki/Licensing.
I. LICENSE PERIOD
The License Period commences upon purchase date of the license and continues for 3 years from date of purchase.
To renew a license after the initial three-year period, the cost will be 50% of the full list price of a new
license at the time of the license renewal; that renewed license will also be valid for an additional three years.
II. LICENSE RENEWAL
A license number is delivered for one specific install number (click here for help on a Wordfast Classic install number, here for help on a Wordfast Professional install number).
Your install number reflects some unique characteristics of your computer, which can change if you format your hard disk,
change your Operating System or Microsoft Wordâ„¢ version, or migrate to another computer.
If this happens, you must re-install the software then
click here to apply to renew your license number ("relicense").
This process is free for three years from the date of purchase, and can be repeated as needed to keep
your installation of the software running during those three years.
Should you use this licensing renewal facility more than 4 times a year, we will require
an emailed request to relicense further. After review, your request will most likely be granted. We reserve the right to
discontinue providing license numbers in a (very unlikely) case of abuse of this multiple relicensing policy.
III. MULTIPLE INSTALLATIONS
Individual users (physical persons) who want to use the software on a second computer (for example, a laptop) they own and use:
install Wordfast on the second computer then obtain a license number using the relicense procedure.
Corporations & organizations (moral persons) can run only one installation of the software per computer
they own and use. Any of these installations can be relicensed if the install number changes.
CORPORATIONS WHO ALLOW THEIR EMPLOYEES TO WORK FROM HOME DUE TO THE COVID-19 EMERGENCY CAN LET THEIR EMPLOYEES INSTALL AND USE THE SOFTWARE ON THEIR PERSONAL COMPUTERS UNTIL THIS NOTICE IS REMOVED.
Your licensing credit has already been modified, please avoid calling the hotline. Simply follow the regular procedure as if installing within your premises. WF PRO: guide your translators to download and install from home (no need to log in), then the corporate manager can fetch an activation key from www.wordfast.net and email it to the translator who can enter it in WF PRO. WF Classic: the manager logs in at www.wordfast.net, then downloads a registered copy of WF Classic (a zip file), then sends the zip to the translator for a local installation.
Wordfast LLC offers a generous demo mode which enables you to try the software on your system and make sure you are satisfied
with it prior to purchase. As such, Wordfast licenses are non-refundable.
Licenses cannot be sold or transferred to other persons or corporations.
The user has sole responsibility for damages arising from the use or misuse of the software.
Wordfast LLC remains the sole owner of the software.

This EULA is the entire agreement between Wordfast LLC and the customer and supersedes any
prior or contemporaneous agreement or understanding, whether written or oral, and any

Here are a few examples of what this practically means:
ExampleÂ 1||An individual user bought one license. She installs Wordfast Classic or
Wordfast Professional (or both if she purchases the "Studio" bundle of the two tools) on her desktop and receives the corresponding license(s).
She installs the same software again on her laptop then applies for license number(s)
on her laptop, using the relicensing
ExampleÂ 2||A translation agency, or a corporation, bought 3 licenses.
They can have, at any time, no more than 3 installations of Wordfast (Wordfast Classic and/or Wordfast Professional).
If a workstation breaks down and is replaced, they can re-install the corresponding Wordfast application, then
relicense that particular Wordfast application.|
