A friend has asked me to send him my Web site to translate it into another language, would someone please tell me how one can send a site to somebody else?

just individual files Dec 18, 2002

If the site is already online the easiest thing would be to go to it, open the HTML source files by clicking on View : (Page) Source, and translating those.

Alternatively, a Web site is just a collection of text files stored in a directory on a Web server. Those files are mostly text and graphics. These are the files you need to send.

Hope that helps

They can extract it using CatsCradle Dec 18, 2002

Good morning and \"Welcome to Proz!\",

The person can download and install (freeware) the program CatsCradle.

Once this is installed, just give him/her the URL for your site (which I gather they have already) and using Catscradle he/she can extract the site, translate it within the tool (even view how it will look) and give you back the site fully translated.

Here is the URL for this software:

(Fast and easy to use web page editor for professional language translators. Translate whole web-sites without having to worry about page layouts and HTML code)

I hope this will help you!

Have a wonderful day

Are the files on your computer? Dec 18, 2002

As with any Web site translation, it\'s best if the client (in this case, you ) sends all the files to the translator. It\'s not the translator\'s responsibility to download the files. There\'s too much room for error with this method.

Do you have the individual page files on your computer somewhere? If so, you could zip them using a compression software program (like WinZip) and send it via e-mail. Or, you can go to the Web site, save each page onto your hard drive and then follow the above instructions.

Good luck,

NO Frontpage PLEASE! Dec 19, 2002

using frontpage

Please don\'t use Frontpage to edit an HTML website. Don\'t even OPEN with it!

Frontpage will alter your original formatting so bad, the web programmer wouldn\'t recognised it anymore (it would add a lot of Microsoft\'s formatting).

Please use Dreamweaver, HomeSite, or simply NotePad.
