The Wordfast format, as used by the Wordfast translation tool, is a simple tab delimited file.
The storage format can read and write Wordfast TM files.
Escaping – The format correctly handles Wordfast
&'XX; escaping and will
unescape and escape seamlessly.
Soft-breaks – these are not managed and are left as escaped
Replaceables – these are not managed
Header – Only basic updating and reading of the header is implemented
Tab-separated value (TSV) – the format correctly handles the TSV format used
by Wordfast. There is no quoting, Windows newlines are used and the
is used as a delimiter (see issue 472)
