Mellel and CAT software

Post by ptram » Tue Jun 26, 2007 7:35 am

Hi to all,

CAT software, or memory translations, are software used to avoid re-translating recurring text in subsequent documents. For example, if you write a manual for version 1.0 software, you probably don't need to trasnalte more than 20% of the total text for version 1.5. The CAT software compares the two documents, and let you work only on the changed text.

On the Mac, I only know Wordfast, that only worked on Ms Office (before Ms removed the VBA language). It doesn't work with NeoOffice or Mellel. So, as far as I know, there is currently no CAT software for the Mac.

If someone knows an alternative solution, I'd be very happy to know.

I give myself a first answer: OmegaT, multiplatform and free.

There are also AppleTrans (free) and Heartsome (commercial), not that I have tried using them.
