Hi,
One of my clients have asked me to use Worldserver and said it is free, but I have tried to download it from the Internet and get the message:
500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

What does that mean? Is it not free anymore?

The client must send it to you Feb 18, 2013

Whether it is "free" or not, I can't tell, but I do know that if you can get your hands on the installation files, then you can legally install it without paying for it. Unfortunately it is no longer distributed by the company that bought the company that used to distribute it, so if your client wants you to use it, he'll have to supply the installation files himself (e.g. via FTP).

Be aware of the fact that - assuming you can locate the installer for the latest (and last) version of Idiom WorldServer - you won't be able to install it under Windows 7 or Windows 8 unless you use the Windows XP compatibility mode (see
http://www.proz.com/post/2045125 for details).

Thank you very much! Feb 20, 2013

It all sounds more complicated than it ought to be, but I'll have to look into it!
