    Default Which software application to use for .rc files and Online Help files

    Hello everybody

    I am doing a test for a translation company specialized in software and website localization and, besides the usual translation tests, I have to answer a number of questions.

    I am given 3 samples (A, B and C). Firstly, I have to name the file type of each sample. I think A is an html file, B is an Online help file and C is a resource file (.rc, programmed in C++). Secondly, I have to highlight in the texts what needs translating (already done, I have avoided any codes/tags) and finally, to say which software application I would generally use to translate each text.

    I think Trados TagEditor would be the best option for the html text, so as to avoid removing any of the codes/tags (or to edit them if necessary). But is TagEditor the right application to use with samples B and C (online help file and resource file)? Or should I use, for example, "Catalyst"? Un fortunately I am not familiar with these tools, I have only used Trados Workbench and T-Window, so I am quite lost... but keen to learn.

    Many thanks in advance for your help,

    I'm not sure if Catalyst wouldn't be the one to use with the online help file...I'm more familiar with TagEditor though and if I had to do it in real life I would use TagEditor first.
