You can share a TM and/or glossary among Wordfast Classic and Pro users via Wordfast Anywhere, in a strictly confidential manner. To do so requires:

  • A Wordfast Anywhere account
  • A fully licensed version of Wordfast Pro or Wordfast Classic
  • An internet connection

Once you have accessed Wordfast Anywhere, do the following to share a remote TM and/or glossary:

  1. Click the Wordfast Anywhere tab, then click the Setup Tm&Glo icon.
  2. Upload the TM and/or glossary you want to share to your Wordfast Anywhere account or create a new TM and/or glossary.
  3. Once added, make sure the TMs and/or glossaries you want to share are active (box ticked in the Active column to the left).
  4. Click the Manage Sharing button at the bottom of the pop-up window.
  5. In the My shares to applications like Wordfast Pro section, click the Add button.
  6. Click Add in the TMs and glossaries sections and chose the TM/glossary you want to share.
  7. Choose privilege settings (read-only, read-write, etc.) for the TM and glossary, then click the Save button.

Now you need to share the API key with Wordfast Classic or Pro users. Make sure to tell Wordfast Pro users what the source and target language codes are for the shared TM and/or glossary so that they create a project with the same codes.

If you have questions about Wordfast Anywhere, you can join our user community forum and post them there.
