Fear all,

this is my first post, so I do apologize for any mistake or inconvenience.

I want to buy a new MacBook Pro 13", 2,8 Ghz, but I also need to use the latest version of Transit NXT Freelance Pro and Termstar. I am unfamiliar with both hardware and software, because until now I am translating on a Windows-PC without translation tools.

I would appreciate, if someone using Freelance Pro on a Mac-PC could tell me something about his experience and provide some advice.

Thanks in advance
Davide

Transit NXT on Parallels 6 and WinXP 32: wow!

You might want to consider an external monitor.

Transit XV + Parallels + Windows 7 = fine Oct 28, 2011

I am using Transit XV (and Termstar) on my MacBook Pro 17" with Intel Core i7, 4 GB RAM, 750 GB disc space, and it works fine. (Across and Trados 2007 and 2009 as well) I am running it on Parallels with Windows 7.
The only thing you have to consider is the keyboard. I cannot use alt+ins to close a segment and jump to the next one, I have to use the menu. If someone has a solution for that, please let me know. The function of the delete key is fn+backspace on the Mac keyboard, but I haven't found out, if it is possible to emulate the insert functionality.

Error Message in Transit NXT pro on Parallels Win7 "Could not save file: USER_DATA.INI" Oct 28, 2011

Hello -

My name is Karen - I´m new to proZ.com and would be grateful for your help.

I need to work with Transit NXT and bought the Pro 3 month licence.

Installation on my MacBook Pro, Parallels 6, Windows 7 was ok, but when I try to load the customer´s ppf I end up with an error message "Could not save file: USER_DATA.INI".

If I press OK the screen remains in the dictionary mode.


Could you direct me to

Solution for Alt+Insert on a MacBook Oct 29, 2011

Hello Tarja,

You might want to consider to connect an external keyboard (e.g. Cherry Strait) with a Windows layout.

When you're running the 32 bit version of Windows, you can write a Transit macro to emulate Alt+Insert.

Third solution: Install AutoHotkey and create a macro for Alt+Insert.

Best,

Hans

Thank you, Hans Oct 29, 2011

I think the easiest way for me would be either an external keyboard or AutoHotkey.

Thanks - Nov 3, 2011

Thanks Emanuela,

An external keyboard is a must for the macbook, I fear. More stuff to schlepp around ...
