Can you use Felix to effectively translate websites?
If yes, can somebody do some 'hand-holding' and lead me through the process?
Do you need to download the entire website or ask the client to send a copy?

You can use Felix to translate HTML pages, of course, but whether it is the best tool for the job depends a lot on what you mean by translating a website.

If your client is simply looking to have you translate a few pages, you could ask that the pages be sent in a zip file or something, and then you could simply translate them in Felix.

Most websites are generated with content that is dynamically feed into page templates from a database, though, and depending on how the client wants to provide the source material, Felix might not be the best tool for the job.

If you can share a little more detail about what you have in mind, I might be able to offer better suggestions.

Best regards,

​Thanks, Sako. I have not yet received the link to the website so I don't have much of an idea.
About eight years ago, I used Rainbow to prepare a small website for translation​ into rtf (there was no dynamic content, Java code, flash, multimedia, etc.) and had it translated using Trados.
I know it all depends on the structure and content of the website, but I wanted to know what  Felix is capable of; whether it can be used to translate website content prepared in XLIFF, html or some other format.
