Hello,

I have created a wiki (TranslateOnLinux) with tools for professional translators running GNU/Linux.

Comments are welcome.

Intended readership Apr 9, 2018

Many solutions mentioned in TranslateOnLinux are cross-platform or online tools, so they should work on MacOS too.

The situation may be quite similar, but it has enough differences to warrant a separate list/guide specifically targeted at translators running MacOS. Maybe someone should devise one.

If Mac users find the list useful, all the better. But the intended readership has been clearly defined: professional translators running GNU/Linux.

Let's keep it

Let's keep it that way in the rest of this thread.

Impressive list! Feb 18

Impressive list! Most of the agencies I work with have their own browser-based CAT requirements, so I don't have much to contribute that is Linux-specific.

The section link to Language/Grammar checkers/Writing aids is broken; it points to "#language-grammar-checkers-writing-aids" but the header's id is "languagegrammar-checkerswriting-aids". The link to Speech recognition is also broken; I suggest looking through the list, I suspect your table of contents was auto-

The link to Speech recognition is also broken; I suggest looking through the list, I suspect your table of contents was auto-generated and tripped over special characters in your headers.

As a suggestion for productivity tools, Ibus-Typing-Booster is a good one to save time and reduce strain/RSI with word prediction. I haven't had much success getting it to play nice with Mint & Cinnamon (my current setup), but it works out of the box with Fedora (tested in a VM).

For unit conversion, I simply use DuckDuckGo as my default search engine in Firefox, so simply typing e.g. "10 mi to km" or "10 mi km" in the address bar returns DDG's conversion result.

Thank you for the feedback, Bruno

I have fixed the Table of contents issue and added ibus-typing-booster under Productivity tools selection. I will try to install it on my Ubuntu-based distro, although there is no readily available package for it.

Cheers!

Jean
