Are there any? Or would a Java-based tool work? (Ooh, I'm totally Linux-ignorant, but as I'll have a "spare" notebook soon, I may try installing it and see how it flies, especially with Chinese text issues.

Hi Terry, just try OmegaT, a java CAT tool, or kbabel. I used booth on big projects and I can confirm their usability.

For more detailled informations, take a look at Marc Prior's site "Linux for translators"

or join the Linux for Translators forum

Best regards,

Translators would use it instead of the proprietary software they are being forced to buy and use, none of which runs under Linux.
But I don't know whether it's working already..

HTH, Harry

Concerning Chinese text issues I thought there would be innumerable Chinese programmers working on it ???

OmegaT Aug 13, 2003

... is one that can be used with Linux. It is a Java-based application, so it is platform independant.

Here's the link to the homepage of Marc Prior, where you can find further information about it:
http://www.marcprior.de/OmegaT/OmegaT.html

As far as I know, it now supports the TMX standard, so TMs can be used with Trados.

HTH.

Thanks for the excellent information and links! Aug 13, 2003

I have actually tried OmegaT under Windoze, but haven't had time to fuss with it with work and all.

I'm sure there *are* many Chinese solutions out there - it's just that I tend to be very cautious about any software changes, even within Windoze, because if I mess up the Chinese components of my system I'm really up the creek!
