Hi,
I need to download Idiom WorldServer to check it out ASAP, but I only get error messages on their home page (I have registered and all):
http://www.idiominc.com/

Anybody know of other places to download it? Or does anybody have the installation file and could send it to me?
(NOTE: Do not send any files directly - to avoid being swamped with heavy files )

Best regards,
Cecilia

One can download it? Dec 18, 2007

I wasn't aware that Idiom WorldServer was freely downloadable. I use Idiom but I never had to download the server package (that's the agency's module, isn't it?). There is the desktop package, which I had to download (got a link in an e-mail from an agency), and the server module can be used via a modern web browser.

WorldServer Desktop Workbench Dec 18, 2007

Sorry for being unclear, I meant the WorldServer Desktop Workbench (I presume this is the user module).

Best regards,

Hej Cecilia Dec 18, 2007

You're right, I get the same error message.

Just write a complaint to the Idiom support. Usually, they are super fast, and reply 24/7.
Either they'll fix the link, or the can send you the file in a mail...

Correct Dec 18, 2007

Correct. Although I'm not sure if you can do anything with it unless you have files that were exported using the server edition. At least, I've never tried to do it.

Fixed Dec 18, 2007

I wrote to support this morning before I went on a shopping spree, and when I came home they had fixed the faulty link and contacted me, superfast - just like Jan said!
Jan, I have seen that you've commented on this tool before. I am downloading it as I have been requested to use it for a major project, and I want to check it out before I commit myself. I understand that you use it just to download files, that you then translate in TagEditor. This is the kind of scenario I am looking for, but I have to know what I am talking about before I make any suggestions to the client. Can I contact you off list (and in Swedish ) for furhter information?

Best regards,
Cecilia

No need for DW if you use TTX or XLIFF Dec 18, 2007

AFAIK, there is no need to download and install the Desktop Workbench (DW) if you're going to use Trados. The web server gives the option of downloading TTX files directly, so you can translate it in Trados without bothering with the DW.

Please note that when I translate Idiom files, I have to make use of the DW because it is easier to sort and view the stuff in DW before exporting the must-translates to tab-delimited text... which I need because I use Wordfast.

Hi Samuel and all,

This is only partly true. The server admin can customize the workflow to either allow or prohibit download in external formats. It's all up to the whim of the customer.

Until Idiom WS 8, we have received tasks that can be exported as SGML, for easy handling in TagEditor. But with WS 9, our end client prefers to block this feature, so we are forced to work with the Desktop Workbench after the upgrade.

/Jan

PS. Cecilia, sure - just drop me a PM here on Proz, and we'll take it in Swedish from there!

Integrating WorldServer 9 with SQLServer 2005 Feb 5, 2008

Hi Kavita

Can you expand a bit? Are you asking about connecting the WorldServer server-side application to an external database content repository? Or is your question in reference to the Desktop Workbench?

-Clove
