The Merits of Using a Mac in a PC-centric Translation World

Yves M. Averous, Christine Lemor-Drake, Michael Metzger, and Catherine Theilen-Burke
Thursday, 3:30-5:00pm - All Levels

The focus of this interactive panel will be the use of Apple's computers and technology in translation. The founders of the Northern California Translators Association's Macintosh user group, TransMUG, will be joined by experts from Apple to discuss the best and latest tools available. Please join us for a sure-to-be-lively discussion on the challenges arising from using Macs in a PC-centric translation world, and the creative solutions offered by advanced technology from Apple. What better place than the Bay Area, birthplace of Apple, to have this discussion!

Intel Macs Nov 23, 2007

With the new Intel Macs, the incentive for OSX-Native translation software have dwindled even more, so I doubt we will see Trados for Mac or (I wish) DejaVu for Mac. Fortunately we have Parallels and Bootcamp as workable alternatives.

I already sold my PC hardware and got two Macs - a Mini for my desk, a Macbook for my couch- and am using Trados in Parallels. Both are a delight to use.
