Spanish translation:It's an HTML page
Explanation:
(1) Too difficult to highlight... have tried but don't seem to manage.
(2) This is an HTML page. You have to translate whatever is NOT between a "<" and a ">" sign.
(3) You can do it in any word processor, although it would be easier with an HTML editor that hides the HTML commands and leaves visible just the text that you have to translate. The general idea is that text is framed between HTML commands, i.e., <head>. A command affects whatever text follows it, until the same command, preceded by "/", indicates the end of the effect.

Example:
<head>
<title>Documentación informativa gratuita</title>
</head>

¡Buena suerte!

Thank you very much for your help. I am not getting people to work for free as suggested by another member. This is a test (26 pages) and this part is meant to show how much you know about this type of text.
Could you please answer my other two questions, including the sort of application where I would find this type of text, and why. Thanks
Your explanation is brilliant, you should go into teaching!

See below,


Explanation:
Marqueses' instructions are correct. You can translate the stuff in a FrontPage 97 or 2000 application, which hides the HTML codes and shows only the text that needs translating.

Sin exagerar...


Explanation:
De nuevo (ver referencia abajo con mi comentario a tu otra pregunta), no exageremos. ProZ es un foro para ayudarse, no para que trabajemos gratis.

Explanation:
To translate this kind of documents, you need to be familiar with the HTML tags, to be sure what kind of information you should translate. You can use the Front Page or the Netscape to modify files in HTML or do it manually with any text processor.

Your other questions


Explanation:
Tried to find your email address.No luck. So I'll use this space for my reply.

Thank you for your compliment. As a matter of fact, I did teach computer programming and systems analysis years ago. Good to know I can still explain myself...

Sort of application where you'd find this text: web site. In other words, you'd be translating internet pages. If you refer to the application used for preparing an internet page, it can be done with lots of programs, including "Composer" in Netscape Communicator.

Why: this is written in HTML, which is the language used for preparing web sites. Nothing else uses HTML.

Go to any internet page. If you use Netscape, click on "View" at the top and then on "Page source". You'll see the HTML document that makes the page look the way it does. You can compare that page with the way the document looks in the usual browser screen.

Good luck. And don't hesitate to contact me if you need any further help.

Sebastian
