While more and more corporations and agencies are turning to Wordfast, we preserve our proud heritage of making software aimed at driving efficiency to the desktop of the end-user, the translator. Today, our products are a collaborative effort of over ten years of field-testing with actual translation professionals. Our development team, motivated by feedback from linguists, continues to work on maintaining the most user-friendly and powerful TM solutions available.
Consistent with our respect for the translation community and our desire to drive value to customers, the Wordfast price point is kept intentionally modest. Further, our development team has gone to great lengths to use open, non-proprietary formats, so that translation memories, glossaries, and other assets, regardless of origin, can be easily shared and introduced into each customer's workflow.
Today, Wordfast has been featured in numerous publications and is ranked the #1 translation memory solution by independent researchers on many key criteria. Driven primarily by the positive reviews of users and industry experts, Wordfast's client base has grown to include leading organizations such as the United Nations, NASA, McGraw-Hill, Nomura Securities, a wide array of educational institutions, and thousands of independent translators.
