Translation (the process) of an ebook

Hi!

Can someone tell me how to translate an epub or rather a mobi file into another language? With which programs can I do the translation?

I mean like translating docx files with the help of a translation memory software.

So I don't want to use MT (machine translation) but rather TM software.

Or should I convert it to docx and then I can translate that file?

Thanks for your replies.

Simply unzip the epub file and translate the following:
  1. All HTML files
  2. The NCX file
  3. The OPF file
However, it might be easier to simply translate the .docx file file that the epub was generated from and to re-generate the translated book.

You'll need to use a CAT program.

I'd recommend Heartsome Translation Studio 8.0, which was GPLed by the developer a couple of years ago. (Download HSStudio_UE_8_3_1_Win_x64_JRE.zip from the Dropbox folder, if you have a 64bit Windows machine.)
If you want to translate the epub files, you'll have to change the file extension of the .opf and .ncx files to .xml and all HTML files will need to have an .html extension.

If you find Heartsome Translation Studio 8.0 too complicated also check out OmegaT, which is somewhat easier to use.

I'm not able to do that because I bought it in epub format. So there is no docx file.

Thank you but:

Where is that folder at all? I haven't found that file nor a binary executable.

  1. Visit the Heartsome Translation Studio 8.0 Github website.
  2. Double-click the Dropbox link.
  3. Download HSStudio_UE_8_3_1_Win_x64_JRE.zip.
