How easy is it to learn?

User friendly and good value for money.
Review by 
Clive Phillips Been using Wordfast Classic for Word source texts since 2009. Has become an 'old friend'. Easy to use. I don't use full functionality, due to my limitations! Represents good value for money, compared with SDL Trados.

How easy is it to learn?

A workhorse tool for MS-Word
Review by 
John Di Rico . I started using WF Classic in 2005 because of its excellent customer support and responsiveness to translator needs. The tool continues to be developed though I use it less today since I switched to a Mac. However, if you are primarily translating Word docs on a PC, I would recommend this tool.

How easy is it to learn?

Does what it does very well and without undue fuss
Review by 
Sheila Wilson . I'm quite aware that I don't use this tool to the full; I'm also aware that I'd probably fail to master its main competitor at all. For Word and Excel files (I don't work with PPT), Wordfast Classic is perfectly adequate for assuring consistent use of terminology, leveraging past work, and ensuring that, in your haste, you never overlook a sentence etc.

Simple, yet full of features
Review by 
Graciela Carlyle . I've been using Wordfast Classic for over 10 years.
It's the perfect translation tool for the Word environment and the support is great.
Simple to use but full of features that can be used as needs arise.

4 out of 5 Can start using it fast, but better if you invest time in learning more.
