A Web setup for a full-featured evaluation version of the latest WinCALIS Author Workstation v.2.5 can be downloaded from here:
WINCAL32.EXE (5/14/02 18,646KB).
This download includes editing support for all the languages included in the first four download modules shown below for the previous v.2.3, but it does not include the large on-line dictionary modules for Japanese and Korean. They may be downloaded from the existing links below and installed as directed. This version is no longer time-locked to expire in 45 days.
Pricing for this new version remains the same. The regular WinCALIS Author Workstation setup on CD includes more extensive documentation, sample documents, and many other extras.
The Web download Setup does not include the Adobe Acrobat PDF version of the WinCALIS Author User's Guide (PDF, 2372KB). You can either view this file directly in your browser, using the Adobe Acrobat Plug-in, or download it to your own machine for viewing at any time. In order to save the file to your own machine, right-click on the link and select "Save Target As..." (or similar wording).
The Author Tryout Edition is a full-featured "time-locked" version of the WinCALIS Author Workstation, identical with the regular edition, which may be be used for a tryout period of up to 45 days. It will give you a feel for Author's functionality, especially its user-friendly interfaces for typing in most of the world's languages, support for Unicode/ISO 10646 UCS-2, and powerful ability to exchange data with virtually all other existing coding standards.
To install the Author Tryout Edition, you will need to download at least the first self-extracting archive file below. That is sufficient for all the many left-to-right alphabetic languages which Author supports. (During Setup--see instructions below--be sure to select the Optional Module for the language/script support you require, by clicking on the "Set Options" button.)
In order to have CJK support (for Chinese-Japanese-Korean languages), you will also need to download the second file. (During Setup--see instructions below--be sure to select the Chinese, Japanese, and/or Korean Optional Modules, by clicking on the "Set Options" button.)
In order to have support for the "right-to-left script" languages (languages written with Arabic and Hebrew scripts) you will also need to download the third file below. (During Setup--see instructions below--be sure to select the "Arabic script" and/or "Hebrew script" Optional Modules, by clicking on the "Set Options" button.)
In order to have (limited) support for the "Indic scripts", you will also need to download the fourth file below. (During Setup--see instructions below--be sure to select the "Asian Alphabetic scripts" Optional Modules, by clicking on the "Set Options" button.)
If you wish to install large on-line dictionaries for Japanese-and-English (105,000 entries) or Korean-and-English (25,000 entries) , then you will also need to download the fifth or sixth file below. (During Setup--see instructions below--be sure to select the "Japanese-English Dictionary" and/or "Korean-English Dictionary" Optional Modules, by clicking on the "Set Options" button.)
