Hi; several years ago there was a company selling a program to assist in translating webpages; it would strip everything from the page except the actual text; you would transate it, and then it would reassemble the page to look exactly as before, but now with the translated text. It was sold for around $50.

Anybody remember the name/company?

Thanks, Rick

True, but Cats Cradle has a preview function that OmegaT lacks.

no instant preview Feb 17, 2009

although not as instant as cats cradle, you can open the translated page in a browser. to update, just hit refresh in the browser after you create translation in omegat.

Check Webbudget as well Feb 25, 2009

Hi, is another cat tool specifically designed for website translation. Among other features, you can mark every image as translatable/non-translatable, while viewing it.

Hope it helps
