Languages that require Unicode Wordfast Classic

Latin-1 is a character set used for most West-European languages, including Scandinavian languages. It includes all English letters, plus a large number of accented letters. East-European languages like Polish, Czech, Hungarian, etc. use another character set known as CE or Latin-2 and do not fall in the Latin-1 group.

If you do not use Unicode, and your system is Windows NT4, Windows95, or Windows98, then the display of characters in the glossaries and in message boxes may perhaps not be possible, which is a minor annoyance.

I recommend using Windows 2000 (or a higher OS) and Ms-Word 2000 (or a higher version), or Word 2011 on a Mac, with Unicode translation memories, although older platforms may behave well.
