Align Assist manual online

The Align Assist manual is now online. The manual includes a quick start tutorial to help get up and started using Align Assist quickly.

I hope to have a Japanese version of the manual up shortly, and to continue to expand and improve the English version.

About Align Assist

Align Assist is a free application to convert legacy translations into Felix translation memories (TMs). Use it to take advantage of past translations you have done, before starting to use a CAT tool. Align Assist supports many different file formats, including Microsoft® Office, HTML, and XML.

New online tool: Word count utility

Today I launched a new tool on the Felix website: an online word count utility. One of my goals for this site is to make it useful to translators, and word counts are one of the pain points for translators. This is especially true of those of us working into or out of (East) Asian languages, since most of the word-count tools out there don’t give Asian character counts (unlike those given by MS Word).

Basically, instead of luring people to this site, I want to make translators — my target customers — want to come here, and keep coming back, and tell their friends to come here, too.
