Just use Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/).
Convert any e-book to RTF. Translate it and convert back (to any format).

I saved you 48 $.icon_wink.gif

I regularly convert ebooks using Calibre, but... there is severe format loss when converting to RTF, so even if you do translate the RTF, you'd need more than just Calibre to convert it back to a professional looking ebook format.

Indeed. Use OpenOffice with OOoFBTools. Still, you save 48 bucks.

Concerning this Webinar Dec 18, 2013

Hi Sergei and esperantisto,

- If you are expert users of Calibre it does not mean that others are as well. There may be translators that wish to take a look at how it works before they use it.
- If the Webinar was only about which tools to use, I would not mention them in the description, would I?
- The price is not 48 - the bundle is 48icon_wink.gif

The Webinar provides practical information, especially for those who are not IT-freaks like meicon_smile.gif

Happy Holidays to all,
best regards,
Irene
