If you have run SDL Trados and/or MultiTerm on the Apple Boot Camp platform, successfully or not, please tell me about it.

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience and knowledge.

Yes Aug 30, 2008

I use Trados, Office 2007 and Dragon NaturallySpeaking at the same time with Mac OSX leopard with my MacBook Pro.

No problem, running better than in my Windows PC.

I use VMware, not Boot Camp.

Regards

No problem whatsoever! Runs great when installed on Boot Camp or Parallels.

Good luck!

Try Parallels Aug 31, 2008

Hello Thor,

I would look into Parallels Desktop:
http://www.parallels.com/
http://www.parallels.com/en/products/desktop/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallels_Desktop_for_Mac
http://www.macworld.com/article/58953/2007/07/parallels3.html

I am using Parallels to access some electronic dictionaries (Langenscheidt, for instance) that only run under Windows. I have the Windows desktop open in the upper left hand of my nonitor, which leaves enough space to work on my Mac-based documents.

I expect that running Trados via Parallels should work really well.

All the best,

Claudia.

No problem with Trados Aug 31, 2008

on Mac OS, I only use a PC keyboard to work with shortcuts (no "home" or "end" keys on a Mac keyboard)

Parallels as analytical said.

VMware for me the best (I have tried Parallels)

And a new for free from SUN, it seams to be good:

Hi, Fernando,

How did you deal with the keyboard shortcuts? Did you customise them?

I can only use 2 of then with the Macbook Keyboard. The solution is to use a "normal" USB Keyboard (I suppose)

For the rest I use the touch pad for it, not efficient but I like to use pad, keyboard and voice at the same time, it help me not to be boredicon_biggrin.gif

Apple's wireless keyboard lacks the home and end keys, but the wired keyboards they currently sell do have them.
