Tried to install Rainbow 4 in order to extract text from html files and insert it into Word/Wordfast for translation. However at installation installation I just get the error message that I need to install .NET version 1.1.xxxx. I have already installed .NET version 2.0 which should be ok.
Have anyone experienced the same problem, or does anyone knows any program that can be used in the same way as Rainbow when translating web-pages in Wordfast? Any help appreciated!

You could tag the HTML files with PlusTools. Go to to download it. Another solution would be to download Rainbow 3, which doesn't use .NET and works fine for HTML.

Thanks Gerard! Mar 13, 2006

It got me a lot closer to solving my problem! I have now installed Rainbow 3 which seems to run fine and to be rather user-friendly. Didn´t think of the obvious solution to try the previous version...
I experienced some problems while preparing a file for translation, but I guess I´ve just made some mistake somewhere along the way:
"The file is in a format not supported for preparation. It will be simply copied in the translation package for reference."
