First of all, I hope this is the right place to post this question.

I wanted to know if some of You know if there are any translation tools for MAC.I am a Mac user and until now I have been translating using just EXEL or WORD,but after a research on the net I could understand that with a good translation tool is much much better.
The probelm is...all these tools are for Windows...and MAC???

If some of You can direct me somewere would be more than appreciate!

Thanks!

Luca

Wordfast Oct 25, 2007

And doesn't Wordfast work on Mac too? As just a document template, I believe it is supposed to work in MS Word even on the Mac platform — though I haven't personally tried it...

Wordfast Oct 25, 2007

Hi Luca,

Wordfast is also compatible with Mac. The standard version (complete functionality) is free, if you want the full version (more TU's) you have to buy it (not too expensive, though).

For more information:

Best regards,
Hester

See discussion from last year! Oct 26, 2007

Hi Luca and all,

This topic was thoroughly discussed one year ago:
http://www.proz.com/post/425494

I guess the conclusion was:
Wordfast
OmegaT
Heartsome
(+ some Windows CAT tools, if you have an older Mac running Virtual PC)
(+ any Windows CAT tool, if you have an Intel Mac with Boot Camp/Parallels)

Most has already been said, unless there is new software out there since last year?!

/Jan

Trados on Parallels Oct 27, 2007

Hi Luca,
I've been using Trados on my Mac's Parallels for some time now. No problem whatsoever so far.

Ciao,
Laura

One more addition Oct 29, 2007

Hi again Luca,

I forgot one more addition!
http://www.proz.com/topic/19016

This thread mentions the CAT tool Mémento, which has the dubious merit of being the only native CAT tool under OS9!
It also works under OSX; although I'm not sure whether it's Cocoa or just runs under the Classic shell:
http://www.cogilia.com/memento_2.html

Also, if I understand correctly, this program wasn't released in public, so maybe it's "vaporware"?!

Regarding Virtual PC, I made a survey earlier about the successful system specs:
http://www.proz.com/post/310282#310282

Based on other people's experience, these are the minimum requirements for running Trados on Virtual PC:

Trados 4.5 and above with USB dongle
OSX 10.1.2 and above (OS9 might work, but I found less evidence)
VPC 5 and above (version must match CPU type)
CPU: G3 333 MHz and above
Mac model: PowerMac and PowerBook (iBook user reported dongle issues)
RAM: preferably 512 Mb and above

/Jan

This discussion is now in the archives, but for those who go looking for Mac CAT tools, a word of warning: the upcoming MS Office for Mac will no longer be supporting Visual Basic. The bottom line: Wordfast runs based on VBA macros, and hence will become inoperative. There's no indication it will be redeveloped to play nicely with native Mac applications either. Just a thought before you plunk down some money...

OmegaT + spell check Jan 8, 2008

I have downloaded a number of Mac CAT programs, and Omega seems to be a very good solution.

Can someone please tell me how to add/activate spell check?

I've found a number of options for Windows Omega users, but nothing for Mac users.

OmegeT 1.8 (still in beta) has a quite good spellcheck, on OSX too (I am using it now).

Not in newest Office Apr 3, 2008

As far as I know VBA is not included in the newest Office for Mac, so this is not the case if you use the latest Office for Mac as I guess Wordfast is based on Word macros.

Cheers,
Johnny

Yes, you're right. Steven already pointed this out:
