Documents to be translated:
You can upload documents in various formats (TXT, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, HTML, TXML, MIF, INX, IDML, PDF) to WFA for translation, and download them back after translation. Up to ten documents can reside in your workspace at any given time. Download then delete documents from the Workspace after translation is completed to free space and upload more documents.

Translation Memory:
Your private online TM grows as you translate. You can also upload TM content, in Wordfast TM or TMX file format, to your private Workspace at WFA, in as many languages as you want. Those TMs are yours, confidential, and never shared nor disclosed to third parties, unless you specifically invite others. Your private online TM can be downloaded, should you need a local copy of it.

There is an option to also leverage translations from a large public, read-only TM (the VLTM), and/or from machine translation. Those two sources are optional and will always be considered secondary to your private TM.

Terminology:
You can add terminology to your glossary a you work, just as with Wordfast. You can also upload terminology to your Workspace, in as many languages as needed. Those glossaries are yours, confidential, and never shared unless you specifically invite others. Your private online glossary can be downloaded, should you need a local copy of it.

There is an option to also leverage terminology from Tilde Terminology Services.
