    Yes! You have to open the PPT, then a blank document in MS Word and with the corresponding TM selected just click on the open segment button of the Worfast toolbar.
    You will start getting the text from the PPT within the word and every time you confirm a segment you create the bilingual file for that PPT.
    Good luck!

    It's not as easy as it seems. WF does not pick up all the text boxes, I just tried it and it only detected one line of a 5-line page.

    That sounds very inconvenient. Are those bilingual segments going to Word or PP? If they go to Word, do you have to place the text manually back in PP?
