Good translation software Jun 7, 2008

Meiner Meinung nach und aus technischen Gruenden, wuerde ich dir entweder DejaVu oder MemoQ raten.

Aber, du sollst auch daran denken, dass aus Vermarktungsgruenden (a bon entendeur, salut...) , die Mehrheit der Kunden dir meistens eine ganz konkrete Uebersetzungssoftware verlangen werden...

Fuer mich die Frage waere welche Uebersetzungssoftware eignet sich am besten fuer die Uebersetzugsart mit der ich am meisten arbeite. Verschieden Uebersetzungsarten haben ja auch verchieden Beduerfnisse.

You have to choose, which would be the best for you

Why not to download trial versions, check them and then decide, which you wish to pay for.

I myself use HS Xliff Translation Editor and sometimes OmegaT. The first one has a trial version, the other one is freeware.

Look in the forum archives Jun 7, 2008

There is lots of information, as this topic is often discussed. Just last week there was a thread that linked to various of the previous discussions.

As a beginner, learning OmegaT, I can't see any reason not to start with it, as it is free! I had some trouble getting started, since I was totally ignorant about it. If you decide to try it, contact me and I will tell you some of what I learned about where to get the most helpful information.

What do your customers demand of you? Jun 7, 2008

Hi! A good software is that one using which you feel most comfortable executing your customer´s specifics. It should cover a wide range of market demands and you should not spend much time learning it, whether it is trados, wordfast, transit or as a matter of fact any piece of software. There is much information available including debates and trouble shooting issues on this portal. I hope you find your way in and out of it. Brandis
