I also asked this question on the L4T mailing list. Are there any programs like TOM and TO3000 available for Linux?

Wine HQ Oct 5, 2005

I really don't know about that issue but there are a number of Windows Emulators available for Linux, meaning that you could install and use any MS-Windows based program on a Linux box.

One of the most popular ones is Wine HQ. It is an open source software.

http://www.winehq.com/

What is Wine?

Wine is an implementation of the Windows 3.x and Win32 APIs on top of X and Unix.
Think of Wine as a Windows compatibility layer for Linux. Wine provides both a development toolkit (Winelib) for porting Windows sources to Unix and a program loader, allowing unmodified Windows 3.1/95/NT binaries to run under Intel Unixes.

Wine works on most popular Intel Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.

Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely alternative implementation consisting of 100% Microsoft Free code, but it can optionally use native system DLLs if they are available.

Wine comes with complete sources, documentation and examples and is freely redistributable. (The licensing terms are similar to BSD.)

With Wine Windows applications can be installed and run on a Linux-system without the need to have a dos file-system installed.

You might want to look at http://www.proz.com/topic/30549 as well

WINE is not technically an emulator. The term is usually used for software which emulates a hardware platform. Emulators like VMWare can be installed on Linux, and then "trick" Windows into thinking that it is being installed on a full PC, when in fact it is being installed within Linux, and is accessible from within the Linux environment. Emulators effectively enable you to run the Windows OS on Linux.

WINE does not work in this way and does not require a Windows installation; it emulates the Windows API.

Most Windows programs will install on a "true" emulator - not surprisingly, since they are being installed on Windows. Software which may need access to hardware peripherals may cause problems, however, and in our case that means software such as CAT tools which rely on a dongle.

By contrast, most Windows applications of interest to translators do NOT install on WINE, or on Crossover Office, its commercial counterpart. A short but by no means complete list of those that do can be found here:

www.linuxfortranslators.org/linux/windows.html

I tested TO3000, or an earlier version of it, at some stage, and it did not install.

Project open Oct 5, 2005

Hi,
a few months ago I ended up on the Project/open website.
If you look at the several version you'll find project.open/translations, which is aimed at translaiton agencies. The standard version is free.

For me as a single user it was too complex both to install and run, but it may be worth a look if you need a complete ERP-CRM suite ^_^

Here's the link:

There is a huge translation project in KDE ... http://i18n.kde.org/

And try this one:

I didn't examine it closely, but it appears that it is a full-blown translation project manager that is being used for various projects. It's aimed at software, but could probably be used for other purposes.
