Translation Memory System – Introduction.

Transit NXT is STAR’s translation memory system for professional translators. Crammed with features and benefits for you – it can make you more productive and profitable with its state of the art translation editor and tools. This 38 minute video shows how Transit can help you create a project, built and use dictonaries and check your translation quality.

Transit NXT – Translation Technology for Translators Introduction from Damian Scattergood on Vimeo.

Translation technology helps real human translators create consistent accurate content. Using translation memory and terminology management systems means you only ever have to translate content once. This ensures that you get the most from your translation budgets. STAR has been developing translation technology for over 25 years, so your linguistic assets are in safe hands.

Transit is used by Professional Translators and Language Services Providers. It can be usef standalone or within the context of a global information management system. You can edit a number of native file formats including Adobe Indesign and the Microsoft Offie Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint). Transit can also edit and translate software file formats such as XML, HTML, CSV, JSP and many more. This demo shows how you can create projects, translate and proofread them all in the same single sourced environment.

Are you interested in using the STAR Transit NXT system for your translation projects or translation department?

Während des Upgrade-Prozesses, zeigt Windows ggf. ein Fenster an, in dem Sie auswählen sollen, was Sie beibehalten möchten.

  • Persönliche Dateien und Apps beibehalten (standardmäßig ausgewählt)

  • Nichts

Es ist unbedingt notwendig, dass Sie die Einstellung “Persönliche Dateien und Apps beibehalten” ausgewählt lassen!

The new Transit NXT Service Pack 9 ushered in loads of new features.

As the localization industry grows, we grow along with it and enhance Transit NXT each time to suit the requirements of the industry.

SP9 packs loads of new languages in which you can now work. Gone are the days that you no longer have to depend on variants if your language was not supported; start working in one of the new languages now supported by Transit.

Eight Additional Languages

Transit supports eight additional languages and language variants. Furthermore, both Transit NXT and TermStar support more than 200 languages and cover all relevant markets in the target languages.

Asian languages: Tajik, Pashto and Dari (Persian); Maori (New Zealand); Spanish (USA) and International Spanish variants; and two other European languages are all the latest additions to Transit NXT SP9.

Next Level of Translation Memory, Transit NXT

Welcome to Transit NXT

It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce the release of Transit NXT — the next generation of STAR’s translation memory app.

STAR is a leading supplier of language technology with more than 20 years of experience in the field. Sustainable ideas, enthusiastic users and the continuous development of the tools are the most important reasons why Transit, TermStar and WebTerm have enjoyed lasting success in the market.

In parallel to the enhancements of the current version Transit XV, the product managers have had intensive collaboration with the development team and many power users regarding which new functions and innovations would be needed in the field of translation and localization. The ideas and concepts, as well as the performance, have been tested with numerous prototypes and the new version has matured via the help of our internal professional users.

At the tekom conference last autumn, the public was given the first preview of the new look and feel. The internal and external user groups have contributed to the further enhancement and optimization of the product with their feedback and demanding questions. During the past eight months, Transit NXT has been tested in production work both inside and outside the STAR Group. The tests focused on compatibility between the current Transit generation and the next generation due to Transit’s new functions, interface and role-based model. The new localization features (resource editor), the new mark-up-strategy (automation) and the target language fuzzy matching have all had to prove their usefulness and usability.

20 years of know-how with a new look and feel, an appealing and user-friendly interface and even more powerful new functions combine to define the concept Transit NXT. The well-balanced combination of proven ideas and principles, innovation and focus on the needs of the users has been the desired end result. It’s a mature product that satisfies the most stringent demands. The software is now available in the UK and Ireland.

New Features

DLL & EXE Editors

You now have the ability to edit and translate DLLs and EXEs.

Bubble Windows

Bubble windows, providing a dynamic representation of fuzzy matches, allow you to make even more efficient use of the Transit editor.

Fuzzy Term

Transit’s tried-and-tested ‘Fuzzy logic’ is now also available in TermStar NXT. Fuzzy search in TermStar NXT not only finds items which precisely correspond to your search term, but also all similar entries contained in the dictionary.

Dual Fuzzy

Your reference material now has even more value. Dual Fuzzy logic in Transit NXT not only takes account of the source text when searching for translation suggestions, it now also looks at the target text.

Synch View

Using the PDF viewer for FrameMaker, QuarkXpress, InDesign and PowerPoint, the translator, reviewer or terminologist can display the fully structured source text in synchronisation with the language pair.

Advance to the NXT level of translation technology
