A customer has asked if I have locstudio and/or Helium. Is anyone familiar with these localization tools, e.g. how much do they cost, where I can find them online, are they easy to use - what do they do? I\'ve found a shareware Mac tool called Helium sold by a company called Tiger Tech -is that the tool in question? Would that be relevant for me as a PC user?

Hello Anne,



Helium and LocStudio are \"Internal\" tools of Microsoft and are not for sell. The person who contacted you should be able to rpovide these tools to you.

Microsoft Locstudio and Microsoft Helium Aug 2, 2002

These tools were developed by Microsoft for their own localization effort. Usually, the agency will provide you a copy. I\'m unaware of whether they are commercially available. LocStudio is a pretty decent tool, used for translating software. Helium is usually used for localizing HTML content and it is a real nightmare. Especially when interacting with Trados memories. At least in my experience.

HTH,



João Brogueira
