Some .FH10-files have found my way. Is there a CAT-tool that can translate these directly?

Save the FH file as .eps and open it in Illustrator. Export files from AI in RTF format. Use DVX to translate RTF file and then reverse the process. Depending on how the FH file was created, you may run into some stormy weather when re-importing the RTF file into AI (=having to paste each of the text blocks individually).

Von Freehand nach Illustrator und aus Illustrator als RTF exportieren. Zurück wird\'s je nachdem, wie die Datei angelegt wurde, aber krüselig - u.U. muss man dann jeden Textblock einzeln zurückkopieren.


Hmm, dann kann man aber auch aus ner PDF den Text als rtf speichern oder mit diesem Clipboard Übersetzer von Trados arbeiten.

Freehand kann auch selbst nach RTF exportieren Jul 20, 2004

doch man muss wohl die Texte stückweise zurückbringen. In Freehand sieht man immer nur ein kleines Stück des Textes so, dass man ihn auch lesen kann. Ich werde dem Kunden vorschlagen, die Übersetzung als RTF zu liefern, oder einen gehörigen Aufschlag zahlen.

Ja, genau Jul 20, 2004

T-Window for Clipboard heißt das Tool. Ist eigentlich sehr geschickt. Bedingung wäre natürlich, dass keine unmöglichen Zeilenumbrüche, Tab-Wüsten oder ähnliches in der FreeHand-Datei die Segmentierung unmöglich machen.

Whoopsiedoodle, here's the English (extended) version:
The tool for translating directly in any application using Trados Translator's Workbench is called T-Window for Clipboard. It's actually quite nifty. To work on a file like that requires that it does not contain line breaks in the middle of sentences, tabtabtabtab indentations or other nasty stuff that makes a clean segmentation impossible.

hmmm...can we pls use English in non-language specific forums?
I think this info would be interesting also for non German speakers
(alternatively, we could move this topic to the German forum?)

Thanks!
