Hi! all!

Today I came across something new, Openoffice - New office tool !! It is for free bieng an opensource project, here is the link http://www.openoffice.org/ . From the looks and feels , it is much like MS-Office yet at no cost. I have even tried converting .htm files in it, a real success, the size remains almost same, unlike MSHTML which makes files very thick, and hence not suitable for webprojection. I wanted to share this information with you, now we can tell the outsourcer that we can work with openoffice, as it doesn´t entertain any CAT-Plug-ins, hence the whole work needs to be done manually. Call it price politics!!
greets

Brandis,

> Today I came across something new, Openoffice <

OpenOffice.org isn't new. It was launched around two years ago.

> it doesn´t entertain any CAT-Plug-ins<

OOXlate is a plug-in CAT tool for OpenOffice.org. It's only recommended for the really adventurous though.

Think twice Jun 14, 2004

Brandis,

I'd think twice about trying OOXlate if I were you, at least for the time being. In theory it will run on Windows but you'd have to be something of an IT wizard to set it up.

Wow! I hereby declare you an IT wizard!

Can you tell what versions you are using of Perl, the Java SDK, the WSDK, OOo (version and language), and of your operating system?

HI! not a wizard and nothing special, I used to teach a few introductory courses in Java earlier, for the beginners. I shall send you the above information separately. I work also with Application server and Webgain, Database designing modules.
