Hi David,

Another tool you might consider is Help & Manual. Unlike Flare, H&M saves pure, unadulterated XML. Here is some translation specific info: http://www.ec-software.com/products_hm_xml.html.

Regards,
Leonard

David, I do not know but I purchased Flare, Lingo and Mimic recently and am learning how to use them.

So, I would be very interested in this too.

I know that Lingo itself will produce the specialized files that translators need to use with their tools.

But Flare - I suspect that it will not produce those files - but I do not really know; how well does it do that thing? I'd like to know.

They are advocating Framemaker - but I am wondering - has anyone out there seen problems between Flare and Trados?...
