Short and painless:

Very customer-unfriendly, you may have to try several addresses to get in touch with them. Also, they don't have a price list, you have to ask for a quote.

HTH,
Benjamin

Thanx Mar 7, 2007

Thank you, I could find the site, but as far as I noticed, there is no pricing at this site. And I think, Quicksilver is not the easiest way to process documents while translating.

And expect a very high price Mar 7, 2007

I've asked several years ago, as one of our customers is working with it and was giving us Transit projects.
Now I'm glad the price was that high - the customer does not provie any work now and there are not so many companies using Interlead.
And indeed, this program is also not very user-friendly.

High price Mar 7, 2007

Are there any "experts" in working with Quicksilver who could share their experience? I`ve got a bunch of files (pdf and interleafe-files included) with an inquiry to translate it using Quicksilver. There must be an option to get it ready for translating by using Tag Editor then buying Quicksilver.

Only if the files are in IASCII format Mar 7, 2007

You cannot open original Interleaf files without Interleaf, I'm sorry. AFAIK any CAT tool is usung this Ileaf interchange format (similar to MIF for Framemaker).

It's not half bad actually, from a translation standpoint Mar 8, 2007

I've done quite a few projects with Interleaf/Quicksilver and the process is pretty fool-proof:
You take the IASCII files from Quicksilver (or generate them if you have the program) and convert them to .ttx using S-Tagger for Interleaf.
Then you translate them, minding the tags as with any other TTX files.
Following translation, re-convert them to IASCII and place them in their original folders.
And finally someone might have to post-format the files in Quicksilver. It's not that hard once you get used to it.

As you can see, there are a few extra steps involved compared to translating, say, MS Word files, but the good thing about Quicksilver files is that they're usually very well-structured and formatted (i.e. no broken segments etc.)

HTH,
Benjamin

You must have been very lucky - my files from Interleaf, which I've got in Transit, have always had some broken segments, like "hexagonal" "screw" building two different segments. And because my customer used one file to pretranslate another one, the result was a number of hexagonal hexagonals or similar
