G'day everyone

Toshiya Kazuyoshi's new freeware CAT tool, Isometry, was recently announced in the Proz forums.

The help files are available here:
http://finitefield.web.fc2.com/isometry/help_en.html

I have created (with the Isometry creator's blessing) a Yahoogroups user mailing list for people who use and who would like to try out Isometry.

Join here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/isometry/
or send an empty e-mail to:
isometry-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

Isometry has a few cool features:

* Multiple TMs and multiple glossaries
* Real-time glossary recognition
* Limited term replacement
* Translation memory fuzzy matching (it marks match differences up to sub-word level, using coloured markup -- ideal for languages with long words)
* Automatic context for individual matches

Isometry translates plaintext Unicode files only. The TM and glossary formats are both tab delimited plaintext files. It requires DotNet 2.0 on your computer.

A very nice tool Apr 28, 2006

This is a really nice tool, I like the philosophy. It's a major drawback that it only translates Unicode text files but the interface is very clean and the concepts are very useful.

I will make Isometry accept Word "12" format May 8, 2006

Thank you for your comments.
The current version of Word format is not open, but the next version "12" format will be open and it will be based on XML. So it is much easier for me to read the format. The next Word version will come late in this year.
