Technical Part

1. We need .exe and .dll files to be localized. Can you help?
By using the special localization tools, we can convert .exe/.dll files into the editable formats 
translators. After translation, editing, proofreading and engineering, we can return back 
    the required
file formats to the client. The tools include Alchemy Catalyst, Passolo, 
    Language Manager etc.

2. We need RC files to be translated. How do you process them?
    Since RC files contain much programming code, our experienced engineers can process 
    the RC files into
simple translatable formats for easy workload analysis and quote.

3. Do you have any experience in online help localization?
     Yes, we have finished lots of help l10n projects. Our experienced engineer team is very 
     skilled in 
handling help localization. The clients only need to send us help files in English, 
     and we are capable
of doing the remaining work - deliver localized Help file in Chinese or
     other target languages. The
table of contents, index and search functions all can be
     localized with the same structure and language
convention compliant. For details, please
     contact us now!

4. I have a FrameMaker project using single source. We need PDF and help files. Do you
    have experiences?
What information do I need to provide?
     Yes we have much successful experiences. Please send us FrameMaker files, linked 
     image files, fonts,
generated PDF, conditional setting of help, WebWorks files and related
     template files (i.e. all files
under Support folder).

5. How do you proceed with QuarkXpress typesetting in Asian languages?
     As you may know, Quark can't support Asian languages well, but InDesign can. To take
     use of batch
processing function of Trados, we can save Quark files down to 4.0 version,
     so that Quark files can be
converted to InDesign. In this way, translation and DTP process
     can be finished by using Trados, to save
much time and efforts.
