Dear All,



after having worked for quite some time with WordFast I would really like to buy a different Cat Tool for my Apple Mac (9.2.2.). I\'ve been contemplating various options:



Buying SDLX or Trados etc. and running it with Virtual PC on my iBook or installing MAC OS X and working with OMEGA (as it doesn\'t work on System 9.2.2.).





Does anybody have a better solution?





Many thanks,

Benita

CAT tool for Mac Feb 13, 2003

One colleague has managed to install OmegaT on OS 9. I don\'t know how she managed to do it - dig around in the archives LantraMUG forum at



http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LantraMUG/



or contact me privately if you\'re intersted.



Even if you do get it to work, though, you will be fairly limited without OpenOffice.org/StarOffice, which does require OS X, and also the X Window system. Unless, of course, Keith is inundated with requests for an rtf filter, to which I suspect he would respond favourably.



Another CAT tool for Mac users is under development. You can find out more in FutureMacMem forum at

A universal & open translation tool

Wordfast is a Translation Memory engine available for Microsoft Word on PC and Mac (see supported platforms).

Wordfast offers a transparent, open format  for all its data, but maintains direct compatibility with Trados 2, 3 & 5 (TM exchange, MultiTerm glossaries, same segmentation), TMX and IBM TM. Excel, PowerPoint, Access files but also tagged documents can be translated. Wordfast connects to MT packages like PowerTranslator™, Systran™, Reverso™ etc.

Although Wordfast is essentially a translator\'s tool, it easily integrates in the workflow of translation agencies & large accounts. All this power is packed in a single, compact Word™ template; data can be shared over a lan or over the web.

Wordfast works without license with translation memories up to 110 Kbytes, and/or 500 TU (translation units). Buying a license removes this limitation.

Wordfast downloads in 2 minutes at 56Kbps (file size: 540 Kb).
