I already posted this topic last November and got only one answer (thanks again ATT). I would really appreciate to get confirmation by other colleagues that Star Transit works/dos not work smoothly (natively) with WordPerfect files. Thanks in advance.

Hi There,

I'm usually a DVX and Wordfast user. However I've been recently granted a large WordPerfect contract, and none of my usual CATs are able to NATIVELY deal with WP files.

So far, I convert my WP English files to MSW files, then through the CAT for translation, then back to WP through a MSW to WP conversion. However the target French files I get are scattered with layout errors.

I have been told Star Transit can natively handle WP files, did someone already experienced that feature? Any feedback?

Ta

Michel

It is best to check with Star AG... Mar 23, 2011

I would suggest that you check this information with a representative of Star AG. I checked specifications that I have for Transit NXT and they do list that it supports Corel WordPerfect 5 – 11.

If you intend to purchase Transit, you will need to get in touch with their sales department anyhow.

What I can say is that they have excellent customer support and that software is very good and stable.

If you wish, I can send you the Product Guide (EN) - it will probably help you. You can contact me via my profile.


Good luck with your projects!

Ana

Hello,
I confirm that Star Transit XV Professional and Enterprise versions have the filter for WordPerfect 5/6x/7/8/9/10.

Transit XV and WordPerfect filter Mar 23, 2011

Hi Michel,
I did use the filter before and worked fine. If your files have has particular or complex formatting and would like to find out if Transit handles it correctly during the import and export phase, you can send me a sample if you wish and I can test it.

FWIW: I've used the filter once or twice, with - as usual when using filters from STAR AG - a perfect result. AMOF IMO The filters for Transit are the best in the CAT worldicon_smile.gif.

yes it works Mar 31, 2011

Hi Michel,

I'm used to translate everything with Trados, but one of my long-term customers works with Word Perfect and sends me files with a very complicated formatting. Moreover, they prohibit any file conversions because of the formatting, so that till now I had to translate everything manually. For this reason I recently tested and then purchased Transit NXT. Today I completed my second large WP project and it works PERFECT!

Kind regards,
Olga
