Connecting to IATE glossaries

From Wordfast Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Wordfast has uploaded publicly available IATE glossaries to our Wordfast Anywhere server so they can be accessed by Wordfast Pro users free of charge.

Please note that you must have a fully-functional version of Wordfast Pro in order to connect to these remote IATE glossaries. You can request a 30-day free trial license for Wordfast Pro 5 from our website.

To use an IATE glossary in Wordfast Pro, you need to create and account on Wordfast Anywhere, add the remote IATE glossary for your language pair, then share it and generate an API key. To make thing easier for you, we have created API keys for some of the most frequently used language pairs:
