MetaTexis for Word version 3 is out
MetaTexis for Word 3 features plenty of new functions and options; it is more stable, more user-friendly, as well as more customizable; and almost every function is now considerably faster, especially database related functions and navigation functions. A lot of efforts have also gone into improving support for tagged files. (For a more detailed description of the enhancements and improvements in version 3, see the list at the end of this newsletter.)
For all who love working with Microsoft Word, there is the good news that MetaTexis, unlike other TM tools, is still fully integrated in Microsoft Word, thus offering a unique combination of user-friendliness and powerfulness. Now this integration is also fully developed in Word 2007 and Word 2010: MetaTexis for Word 3 features a new ribbon that lets you easily access every function.
You are invited to test the new version 3 by downloading the trial version at http://www.metatexis.com. If you have already purchased a license for version 2, you can purchase the upgrade at a reduced price (102.33 euro). Those of you who have purchased version 2 since July 1st 2010 will even get an upgrade key for free!
To make the upgrade, install the new version, and launch MS Word; then a dialog will be shown that leads you to the upgrade page.
I hope you will continue to enjoy translating with MetaTexis! I will keep developing MetaTexis to make your translation job even more efficient and profitable. Your suggestions and error reports will help me achieving this. You are therefore welcome to contribute to the further development!
