Introduction

Wordfast Server (WFS) is a Translation Memory (TM) and Terminology server. It only serves data. WFS does not edit or manage TM/terminology content.

Supported platforms

WFS runs as a 32-bit Windows application on any Windows machine that is connected to the Internet. WFS will also run on 64-bit versions of Windows. Those include Windows 2000™, Windows XP™, Windows server™ 2000, 2003, 2008, 2012, Windows Vista™, Windows Seven™, Windows 8.x™ , Windows 10.x™, and later versions.

Required environment

WFS does not require any third-party database system – it uses its own proprietary database and indexing system. Thus, it is not necessary to own or enable Windows database services or DBMSes like Microsoft SQL server™, ODBC, Oracle™, etc. For optimal performance of WFS, you should minimize the number of third-party applications and services installed and running on the same workstation.

Client-server communication channel

WFS uses TCP-IP to communicate with clients such as Wordfast Pro, Wordfast Classic, or Wordfast Anywhere. It uses its own protocol on top of TCP-IP, as well as its own military-strength encryption method. Thus, all WFS needs is a valid Windows socket. IIS or other services do not need to be activated.
Another communication channel uses an easier HTTP protocol through a small application (WfServerRelay). This manual’s Appendix 2 describes a REST API which allows developers to connect their applications to Wordfast Server in literally less than an hour.

Physical requirements

WFS only needs a basic, Windows platform with an internet connection to run.
Hard disk: A minimum of 10 Mbytes is necessary to install and run the application. For the database (TMs and glossaries), reserve three times the expected bare database size to accommodate indexes and temporary files.
RAM: At least 2 Gbytes of RAM.
Processor: Any processor can be used.

Server capacity

One instance of WFS can exploit a database of up to 10,000 Translation Memories (with any number of different language pairs), totalling up to 1,000,000,000 Translation Units (TU), and serving up to 5,000 clients.
A collection of TMs is a database, a TM is a table within the database, and a TU is a record within the table.
Most clients will start with one server serving all languages simultaneously, and will probably never outgrow WFS’ capacity. However, it is possible to split the load among as many servers as there are language pairs (one TM supports only one language pair), or even one server per TM, so that stellar scalability is achieved.

Database

WFS’ native TM format is the Wordfast TM format, which is a tab-delimited text file, as described in the Wordfast Classic Reference Manual, in the WFC Translation Memory format section.
It’s the simplest of all TM formats to date — it can be opened with text editors, like Notepad, or any unicode-compliant text editors.
Wordfast TMs can be regular ANSI (8-bit) text, or Unicode UTF-16 (both little-endian and big-endian).
WFS can import TUs from TMX TMs (all levels of TMX), and from Wordfast TMs.
Note that the Wordfast TM format does not systematically store text formatting information (inline codes) per se, because they are known to bloat and choke TMs. It does record, however, placeholders for all third-party “tags”, which are meant to preserve formatting when the user wants it to. In short, the Wordfast format stores formatting information using a symbolic method.

Backup

The WFS database is a collection of discrete TXT files (one TXT file per TM and one TXT file per glossary), plus one single configuration file with a .stats extension. All other files, such as indexes and temporary files can be recreated as needed by WFS.
Backing up simply means backing up TMs, glossaries, and the single .stats file. Any standard method can be used, including mirroring, replication, RAID strategies, etc. The only requirement is that the backup method accommodates “live” files. If that is not the case, the server should be stopped before files are backed up. Most modern backup utilities can back up live files.

Deployment

WfServer.exe is a stand-alone Windows application. It does not need any installation. It does not need any DLL. WfServer.exe can be dropped in any folder and started. Deployment must be done on a Windows workstation started with a Graphical User Interface (GUI), in admin mode, either in remote Desktop Mode, or directly with a keyboard and a monitor, in order to install, set up, and run the application. WFS is not a silent service.
WfServer.exe can be declared as a Windows start-up application (launched when Windows starts) so that it (re-)launches itself if the system reboots. WfServer.exe cannot be run as a Windows service.

! Note that when accessing the physical server where WFS is located using a Remote Desktop (RDP) session, you must use an admin (administrator, or root) session. If you do not remote desktop to the server in admin mode, you will create a new session every time you log in, and possibly launch another instance of WFS in another session of the same physical server. If you are not sure how to work as admin, get help from a trained IT professional.
The workstation where WfServer.exe is installed (the server) must have a fixed sub-domain or domain name, or a fixed IP address, where it can be reached. If the server is located inside a Local Area Network (LAN), and is to be used by translators outside the LAN, the administrator must make sure the server can be reached from outside the LAN using a fixed domain or subdomain name, or a fixed IP address.
If only translators located within the LAN use the server, it is possible to use only the LAN IP number. The Setup > Network tab displays the server’s current local (LAN) IP number and the server’s WAN, or Internet, IP address. That Internet IP address is usually assigned by the LAN administrator. It can also be determined on the workstation by visiting http://www.whatismyip.com/ although only the network administrator can guarantee visibility from the WAN (Web).

Licensing and demo mode

A license is a contractual agreement between Wordfast LLC and the user to use the WFS software within certain limitations. A license is materialized as a code issued by the licensing party — usually Wordfast LLC — in response to a given Install number. The Install number of a WFS installation is found in the Setup > General pane.
The license number number can then be obtained directly from www.wordfast.net after logging in with the credentials obtained when purchasing the license.

Note that the Install number is valid for a particular context, which includes physical characteristics of the workstation where WFS runs (hard disk, BIOS, etc.)
If those characteristics change, the install number changes and a new license number must be obtained at no cost within the duration of the license agreement. Make sure that the workstation WFS runs on does not often change hard disk formatting or other characteristics.
WFS typically runs uninterrupted for long periods. The workstation where WFS runs should be rarely restarted, as it is generally the case with database servers.

Demo mode

The demo mode is defined by the absence of a valid license. It is indicated by a flashing RED message in the upper right hand corner of the application window. In this mode, WFS does not accept more than 3 simultaneous connections, and is reserved for private and personal use in production by individuals, such as freelance translators. Yes -- WfServer is free for use by private persons, including freelance translators, in which case, the (fully functional) demo mode can be used. Translation/localization agencies, administrations, and corporations in general, should use the demo mode only to evaluate or test WFS, not for actual production.

Setup overview

Bird's eye view

Here is a snapshot of a typical installation, with one server, Computer1 (where WFS runs), and two clients: Computer2 (Johnny) in the local area network (LAN) and Computer3 (Lisa) connecting remotely via the world wide web (aka the Internet, or the WAN network).

Computer3 connects to WFS with:

Computer2 connects to WFS with:
login:password@Foobar:47110, or
login:password@192.168.1.33:47110

login:password are the account names and passwords as defined in the "Accounts" section in WFS.

In the example above, if Wordfast Classic is used and WFR (WfServerRelay) is in the LAN, the administrator should open the WFR port on the router (port 81 by default, although that port can be customized). This does not apply to Wordfast PRO, which does not need WFR.

Detailed step-by step instructions

Wordfast Server (WFS) exploits TMs. The first step is to mount TMs in WFS. TMs must be in either standard Wordfast format (ANSI, UTF-8, or Unicode) or TMX format. Use the TM tab to do that. The server needs to “reorganize” a TM the first time it is used. Once the reorganization is done, reorganization is no longer needed, unless indexes are lost or damaged in which case the server automatically reorganizes the TM.

The second step is to create accounts that allow clients to connect to WFS. Clients are translators using Wordfast Classic, Wordfast Pro, or Wordfast Anywhere, or any third-party application that is compatible with WFS. Accounts give clients the right to connect to a TM served by WFS. One or more translators (users or clients) can use the same account. Each account has one login name and one password; it exploits a TM.

For clients to connect to WFS, the WFS server must have a fixed IP address, accessible by anyone who connects to it. The relevant port must be opened on WFS computerf. Clients need to know the account login, account password, server’s IP address, and Port # (WFS uses port 47110 by default).

To provide access to a given account, the WFS administrator should provide the client with the following details:

  1. The server account Login and Password from the second step described above.
  2. The (sub-)domain name, or the IP Address, of the workstation where WFS is running. The IP can be determined by visiting the following link from the physical server: http://www.whatismyip.com/.
  3. The Port # from the WFS Setup tab > Network option.
  4. A WorkGroup ID (if the Public checkbox in the TM tab is not checked). A workgroup ID can be any 10-character code that you choose. The code can contain letters, numbers and/or special characters. Warning: the characters i, l, o, I, and O are not allowed.

The WFS administrator can provide that information in a connection string with the following format:

login:password@DomainName:PortNumber, or
login:password@IPnumber:PortNumber
for example,
login:password@Foobar:47110, or
login:password@192.168.1.33:47110

The WFS administrator must have mounted at least one TM and created at least one account pointing to a TM and/or glossary. Remember that clients connect to accounts (not to TMs). From that point on, activity can start. The “Server is active” checkbox must be checked in the “Activity” tab. More TMs and accounts can be added while the server is active.

Many options can be set to administer the server. The options are detailed further below.

Translation memory file name
    

Write a “user-friendly” TM name in the TM name textbox. Use short names without accented letters or special characters. Remember that when dealing with complexity, the golden rule is to keep things simple. Keep path (folder) names simple too. WFS supports long path and file names, as well as Unicode folder or file names, but we still advise keeping things simple.

Do not enter a TM password. That field is reserved for rare applications, such as remote administration modules.

Protection and security is provided by the password under the Account tab. Leave TM password field empty unless you know what you are doing.

If you allow clients to write to that TM, check the “Write TM” checkbox. Note that you can allow writing to a TM, but deny or authorize write access at the account level.

The “Without” checkbox, if checked, indicates that clients are authorized to write TUs to the TM without a WorkGroupID. As a general rule, you want to check that option.

Click the “Apply” button to record the new TM, or any changes in the list of TMs. It can now be considered that the TM is mounted. Click the Apply button after any change in the setup.

Right-click the list of TMs for a list of actions that can be performed on a particular TM. The most frequently used action is to add Translation Units (TUs) from another TM (the "Append TM" option). These TUs can be taken from a Wordfast TM or from a TMX TM.

This tab sets up glossaries, in a manner very similar to a TM.

Glossaries use the standard Wordfast Classic glossary format, in TXT format, ANSI, UTF-8, or Unicode.

Do not enter a glossary password unless you know what you are doing. As with the TM tab, note that security is enabled through the use of a password at the account level. A glossary password is only used in rare applications that offer a remote administration mode.

Click the "Apply" button to load the new Glossary or any changes made to it.

Start with entering an account name. In the Nb field, enter the maximum number of clients that can use that account simultaneously. Do not leave that setting at 0 (zero), otherwise, no client will be able to connect. Enter a password in the Password field. Keep the priority level to 10 (highest) if the client is a human translator.

Choose a TM for the account by clicking on the button with two periods next to the TM field. Choose a glossary by clicking on the button with two periods next to the Glossary field.

Check the Write TUs checkbox if you allow that account to write TUs into the selected TM.

Check Force encryption to force the client to use encrypted communication.

Leave the Speed value to its default value (180 requests/minute) if the account is to be used by human translators. If the account is used by an automat (for example, a piece of software that can send translation requests at a very high rate), raise that value to 1,000. The value of 180 is high enough to let "human" translators work, but it will block possible hackers that would try to block the server by bombarding it with millions of translation requests.

Click the Add button. The account has been created.

If you make any changes to an account, click on the Apply button to apply changes.

Use the Remove button to remove an account.

Go to the Activity tab and check the Server active checkbox. The server is now running and ready to serve any client using the account we just set up (REINE_Gabon), which is connected to one TM (TM_EN2FR) and one glossary (GLO_EN2FR) as in the screenshot.

The Activity tab lets the administrator monitor server activity.

The Server active (or WFS active) checkbox, when checked, actually turns WFS on (makes it an active server, responding to requests). It should be checked when the server is in use.

The Activity log checkbox tells WFS to echo all activity in the textbox. The Activity checkbox actually turns itself down if nobody uses the WFS interface (clicks a button or changes a tab) for 10 minutes to save processor cycles.

The Sess. Count number indicates how many users are currently connected to WFS. Users open a session when they first connect to the server. They can close their own session (for example, when quitting their translation tool, the translation tool sends WFS a “Close session” command). A user session is automatically closed if WFS has registered no activity for more than five hours (the number of hours can be set in the Setup > Sessions tab).

The Queue progress bar indicates the state of the FIFO queue run by WFS to process incoming requests sent by clients. The priority value associated with an account in the Accounts tab sets the account’s priority in the queue. It is advised to give human translators a high priority (closer to 10) because they typically send 2 to 10 translation requests per minute, needing immediate response, and a lower priority (closer to 1) to automated processes, like programs that batch-process files, because they can load WFS with thousands of translation requests per minute.

Organizations with more than 3 employees, such as corporations, translation agencies, or institutions, must have a valid license to run WFS in production mode. Without a valid license number, WFS runs in demo mode, which is only allowed for evaluation purposes, or for production use by individual (“freelance”) translators working as self-employed individuals. In the demo mode, WFS does not serve more than three “clients” simultaneously. That is the only limitation. When you enter a license number in the red textbox, the textbox background turns to white if the license number is correct, and WFS runs in production mode.

Check the System cache checkbox to boost hard disk operation performance on regular Windows versions. On Windows server versions, the system cache is enabled by default, so it is not necessary to check that option.

By default, WFS uses port 47110 for communication. We advise using that port. The Wordfast client is set to use port 47110 by default, in the absence of a specified port. Port 47110 is not a standard Windows port, and is less likely to be bombarded by hostile pings and pressure. You can use another port number, but then, clients that access WFS must specify the same port number right after the server’s IP number in their connection string, as in the following example, where port 500 is forced:

john:mypass@domain.com:500, or
john:mypass@167.67.78.1:500

If 47110 is used, clients only need to specify:

john:mypass@domain.com, or
john:mypass@167.67.78.1

The WFS administrator can specify an email address (and the relevant SMTP server for mail relay) to receive automatic notifications. Notifications are critical events registered by the server, such as starting up, closing down, or faults.

! Firewall/security alerts. Your network administrator may notice that WfServer.exe tries to reach servers outside the corporate LAN, and may object. The checkbox right after "WAN IP" can be unchecked, in which case, WfServer will not attempt to determine its WAN IP address by polling www (WAN) web servers.

The server can automatically delete TUs if:

  1. They are older than X years
  2. They were re-used less than X times.

Values 1. and 2. are entered in the TMs section of the Setup tab. Actual purge is done by right-clicking a TM in the list of TMs in the TM tab, and choosing the Purge option.

Check the Delete redundant TUs checkbox if WFS must delete existing redundant TUs when TUs are being added to the server. Redundant TUs are defined as TUs where source segments are identical. If a different definition of a TU must be used (for instance, redundant TUs are those where both source and target segments are identical, or where the degree of matching is above 95%; or where attributes are identical too), the translation client should make the decision.

Check the Auto-increment 100% checkbox if WFS must increment a TU’s "Re-use" counter if it serves a 100% match originating from that TU.

Check the Reorganize with pack checkbox if WFS must pack holes during reorganization. When a TU is deleted, it is filled with whitespace, creating a “hole” in the database. The holes are often reused in real time when TUs are added, but sometimes some holes cannot be reused. That is why it is necessary to remove the holes during the reorganization.

The Admin password can be set here. It is required by any “client” that wishes to connect to the server in Admin (administrator) mode. At this time, no application exists to pilot WFS from a remote location in administration mode, but the API explains how such a client application can connect to WFS in admin mode.

We recommend accessing WFS in remote desktop mode to set it up or administer it by directly manipulating its user interface.

! Note that when accessing the physical server where WFS is located, you must use an admin session. If you do not RDP the server in admin mode, you will create a new session when logging in; however, that session may likely be closed when you log off, thereby closing WFS. Otherwise, that session may keep running, and the next time you log in, you may create a nother session, and effectively start a second instance of WFS. In short, when using Remote Desktop to access the server, open an admin session.

The Maxi value is the maximum number of persons that can simultaneously access the server in Admin mode.

The Donor password is “Donor” by default. It allows clients accessing the server in “Donor” mode to write public TUs into a TM. “Public TUs” are visible to anyone accessing the server, so they are considered as being “donated” to the public. Public does not mean “the public” at large. Public distinguishes these TUs from private TUs in the same TM, within the one server you run, which is not accessible to the public. Private TUs have a WorkGroupID attached to them and are only visible to clients using the same WorkGroupID.

Disable logins: If you want to shut down the server, you may perhaps want to first block any new session from being opened. This checkbox, if checked, rejects any new login request, but keeps existing users logged on until they leave.

Max idle time: This is the maximum idle time until WFS terminates a user’s session (the maximum time without a ping or a request coming from a user).

Ping same identity: If two clients are logged with the same identity, this may indicate that one session crashed (or did not end with a proper end-of-session command), and the same user started a new session, with the first still opened. The server will ping both sessions to resolve the problem and know which of the two sessions is “orphaned” and should be ended. Each session has a unique session identifier that makes this operation possible.

Resolve address: Tries to get a clear domain name from a user’s DNS information.

Appendix 1: Setting up Wordfast Classic or Pro with WFS

Methodical two-step troubleshooting with WF PRO and/or WF Classic:

  1. Set up WFS in the physical server. Install a client (WF Pro, or WF Classic) in the physical server, and make sure everything works. In this first test, both WFS (the server) and the client application (either WF PRO, or WF Classic) are on the same computer! Note that the IP number is 127.0.0.1 in this mode.

  2. Now, set up a client (WF Pro/Classic) on a LAN or WAN computer and test. At this second stage, you will need to know the WFS server's IP number (whether LAN, or WAN). Do not proceed if you don't know that IP number!

If 1. works and 2. (LAN or WAN) does not work, you’re dealing with port issues, NAT issues, firewall issues, or generally speaking, architecture issues that are outside our hotline’s reach. If 1. does not work, see the troubleshooting guidelines below.

Using Wordfast Classic (WFC) as a client

Prerequisite: you must run a small utility named WfServerRelay.exe alongside WF Server, which is in the WfServer.zip file you downloaded. WF Classic (WFC) actually “talks” to WfServerRelay (WFR). WFR “locally” talks to Wordfast Server (WFS). The physical server should have a fixed IP, and the appropriate port open. WfServerRelay uses port 81 by default.

The example below assumes EN2FR as both account name and password defined in the WFS > Account tab. It assumes that WFC has a TM (not necessarily an active one, but it must be selected) with EN-US and FR-FR as source and target language codes. If yours are different, use the proper language codes.

Bottom line: language codes on WFC's Translation Memory pane, and on WFS' TMs pane, must be identical. Do not confuse language codes and TM file name.

Setup in WFC

The Remote TM section of Wordfast offers a connection to a Wordfast TM Server.

Setting up Wordfast Pro with WFS

With WFS:

Using Wordfast Anywhere (WFA) as a client

WFA accounts, as of going to press (Sping 2020) are free for all. In WFA, get the URL from "TMs & Glossaries > Setup > View/Edit". It looks like this:

wf://CznlO71SE7.EN2FR:@207.223.244.237:47110/14+?$yCv1S

That way, you can connect to the TM and glossary that are currently active in your WFA account. WFA TM connection is read-write. You can even set your TM as "shared" in your WFA account, if you wish so, and invite others to share it.

Wordfast Anywhere is found at http://www.freetm.com/

Run this checklist before contacting the hotline:

  1. The entire setup (WFC’s TM setup and the TM used by WFS) has the same language codes (EN-US to FR-FR in this example, any other codes are fine as long as they are consistent). A common cause of failure is that the local tool (WFC) and the distant server’s TM do not have identical language codes. Remember you can open a TM with a text editor (Notepad) to verify and/or edit language codes.
  2. All software is on the same computer for engineering test by the administrator (case #1 in the initial "Methodical test section above). However, in production, with both the server (WFS) and the relay (WFR) on distant machines, update the IP numbers. If both WFR (WordfastServerRelay) and WFS are on the same remote machine (recommended setup), the WFR=... IP should be the accessible remote IP (LAN or WAN), and the WFS=... IP should be 127.0.0.1. This is because, in that typical setup, the local WFC talks to a remote WFR (remote IP) and in turn, WFR talks to a localhost WFS (localhost in relation to WFR).
  3. The Account at WFS in the example is named EN2FR (any other name is OK, in which case, use that name), same for the password. The “Server active” checkbox is checked in WFS' "Activity" pane, the "Activity log" checkbox is checked, so that the server echoes the received commands as in the screenshot (it can be unchecked in production). Do not use a password in the TM pane in WFS. It is left empty in the screenshot. The password is defined in the Accounts tab, not in the TM tab.
  4. TM is set to “active” in WFS’ TM tab.
  5. WFC is set up using the screenshot as example.
  6. The active TM in WFS contains a translation unit with "Hello World!" as source.
  7. The active TM in WFS' TM tab's properties group is in "sync" (meaning, it has been reorganized once).

Appendix 2: Wordfast Server API commands
