!DEAL Translation for Adobe InDesign CS (TRADOBEINDECS)
!DEAL Translation for Adobe InDesign CS (TRADOBEINDECS) is a filter application
designed to facilitate translation of Adobe InDesign CS/CS2 documents.
To each InDesign document, TRADOBEINDECS generates a file with marked up text
that will work well with SDL Trados or
any other XML-savvy translation memory tool.
A TM friendly intermediate XML format, "JOY"
TRADOBEINDECS extracts texts and other pieces of information
from an InDesign Interchange format (INX) file and reorganises them into an
intermediate format for translation, the "JOY" format.
JOY is XML and is friendly to a translation memory solution like Trados of
Translation with minimal impact on layout
The text attributes and general layout of the document, including
inline frames and their anchor positions in texts can be preserved,
as much as they can be with INX in InDesign.
Facilities for story selection and rearrangement
Stories for translation can be selected if desired, along with
they will end up with
in the JOY translation format.
