Does anyone know where we can actually buy Transit, and I don't mean their light version?
Their website (a.o. http://www.star-solutions.net/html/eng/home/index.html) lacks commercial insight, if you ask me.

Looks like one cannot get it online Feb 25, 2005

I tried this already in 2003 but did not find a site for downloading the full version. Seems one has to buy it from a local representative??

Searched everywhere...
Local distributors?
Nobody in Belgium. The one in The Netherlands seems to be a translation agency; but no pricing or other info at all about the actual software.

You need to go through a rep Feb 25, 2005

Most of their reps are translation houses. Here in Brazil they are a good size operation but they are eager to sell the software too.

I called them and they were very positive, gave me the price over the phone (I am actually considering buying it too)and we scheduled a presentation meeting for next week. They even offered a trainning program (not free, which tells me these are serious people).

I asked them point blank if they didn't have any problem feeding a future competitor in the translation arena. Their answer is pretty much what I think: There is a market for everybody. If they don't sell it somebody else will.

Contact me at my direct email flexwrite@gmail.com after my meeting with them on Wed, March 02, and I should be able to give you more details.

Nope (again), unfortunately Feb 25, 2005



Thanks for the effort, Kathinka, but this page doesn't give any info about purchasing the software.
And I already have the light version...

Thanks for the info!
We will have to get in touch with the translation agency in The Netherlands.
Rather weird that they don't seem to mention they're 'Star Transit' reps. Not very smart commercially, wouldn't you say so?

Reading the above statement I remember buying electronic dictionaries at Transword Holland, some years ago. The contact always offered me Transit and was very eager to tell me the advantages of their training program.

I wonder how they sell their products???? Feb 26, 2005

Thanks Evert for posting this question.
I have followed all the leads that our colleagues given us, but I'm always arriving on the same site, with no information whatsoever on how to order the full version.
I sent an email to the support with a question, ... and I got a prompt reply.
I sent an email to the information desk requiring the rates, ... and I got a prompt reply
I sent another email to both services, requiring how to order, ... and I got NO reply.
So they are alive somewhere, but apparently not really eager to sell their stuff.

Thanks Henk for the link. I will try and get in contact with the Dutch office on Monday.

It really makes one wonder how this program is being distributed if it's so hard to get your hands on it!
As Evert pointed out, hardly very commercial, is it?
