Greetings to all:

Can someone kindly help me by recommending, "wihtout any obligation whatsoever", a GOOD Arabic- English software package(s) that can handle for me "hopefully" the following two tasks:

1) Recycling (or reusing) about 25 thousand A4 pages of my legacy Arabic- English (translated) documents, saved in MS-Word file format

2) Feeding (in batches NOT individually) into such package about 3 three million Arabic- English terms saved in numerous MS-Word two columned files.

For your kind information, the main purpose of such a task is to enable me to expedite a lot my future translations from Arabic into English and vice-versa.

Thank you for your kind attention and generous help in this respect.

Best Regards.

Appears to be a lot of hard work though Mar 13, 2006

I was about to post the same link to that question (which I had posted).
As you can see from most of the replies I got, a lot of work seems to be involved in "feeding" Trados your previous translations, and several colleagues suggested that it's not really worth the trouble (Trados IS worth it, but feeding all your previous translations in it isn't).
I've decided to give it a try anyway and maybe just focus on the most important stuff. Will let you know when I've started.

Consider TranSphere software by AppTek Mar 18, 2006

Greetings... taHaiya Tayyiba wa b3ad..

Given how you describe your desired use to create and populate a bidirectional bilingual glossary, you might consider the Arabic-supported TranSphere (r) software by AppTek. Visit < > for details.

As others mentioned, you're look ahead at a lot of "sweat equity" in your time and labor invested in entering those many terms the first time around (Allah yuqawwiikum...).

Hope this helps.

Khair, in shaa' Allah.
