Advantages and Disadvantages of KDE Lokalize
Thread poster: ProzAga
Apr 27, 2011

Hello,

I would like to know your opinion about KDE Lokalize translation system.
What would be the most appropriate application of this software?
What type of files can I translate with it?. Is there an essay way of converting MS Office and HTML files in order to work with them in Lokalize?

PO files Apr 28, 2011

It works with PO files, and I'm not sure about other formats. Open source projects are very specific in terms of localisation process, and the tools are tailored to fit the workflow.

Check OmegaT, also free software, but more similar to "general" tools, and which opens more formats.

KDE Lokalize probably can transtate MS Office and HTML files with 3rd-party free software Aug 22, 2011

LibreOffice: Features:
Compatible with all major competitors' file formats. You can easily import files from Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and many other formats, and can easily save to Microsoft Office and other formats when needed.

LibreOffice: Features: Writer:
To guarantee that your documents can be opened by the widest range of products and far into the future, save your documents in OpenDocument format, the new international standard for text documents. This XML-based format means that people opening your files are not obliged to use Writer: they can be accessed using any OpenDocument-compliant software.
Writer easily reads Microsoft Word documents, and you can also save your work in Microsoft Word format, for sending to people still locked into Microsoft products.

LibreOffice: Features: Calc:
You can save your spreadsheets in OpenDocument format, the new international standard for documents. This XML-based format means that your files can be read even if the recipient is not a Calc user. Your spreadsheets will be accessible using any OpenDocument-compliant software.
You can also open Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and can also save your work in Excel format for sending to people still locked into Microsoft products.

LibreOffice: Features: Impress:
You can save your presentations in OpenDocument format, the new international standard for documents. This XML-based format means that your files can be opened by recipients who are not LibreOffice users: your presentations will be accessible with any OpenDocument-compliant software.
You can also open Microsoft PowerPoint files, and save your work in PowerPoint format for people still locked into Microsoft products.
