The appTranslator Editions
The Standard Edition
The Standard Edition contains all the features described here
except for the 'Export to Translator Edition' and 'Import from Translator
Edition' functions, which are included in the Professional Edition only.
The Professional Edition
In addition to the Standard Edition features, the Professional Edition
supports export and import (merge) of appTranslator projects to and from
translators, allowing much
easier collaboration between developers and translators.
appTranslator Professional Edition contains a re-distributable installer
for the Translator Edition. This installer can be freely distributed to
the translators involved in the project managed using the Professional
appTranslator PE supports the XLIFF file format in order to ease collaboration with professional translators.
The Translator Edition
This is a stripped down version of appTranslator that does not
include the project management tasks:
- Translators cannot modify the list of modules and their properties.
- They cannot modify the list of languages.
- Items that must not be translated are invisible to translators (e.g.: Icons. See Do
not Translate flag).
The Translator Edition is bundled with the Professional Edition and
is freely re-distributable to translators working on appTranslator projects
managed using the Professional Edition.
Note: The Translator Edition is not available with the Standard Edition.
The Translator Edition can also be used by developers who are not involved
in managing the appTranslator project but only want to be able to build
target (translated) files. (e.g. upon compilation of the application,
using a Visual Studio custom build step).
