This is maybe the easiest way to run InterpretBank on a Mac. Crossover allows you to install Windows applications on your Mac. It's easy and there's no Windows license required. Your applications integrate seamlessly on your Mac; just click and run. Try the 14 days demo version of Crossover! InterpretBank is officially supported, have a look. Most functionalities will perfectly work! After installing CrossOver, you can follow this easy instruction to install InterpretBank on your Mac.
Some suggestions coming from users:
- to import/export glossaries from InterpretBank you have to tell Crossover which folders can be shared with InterpretBank. Some are already enabled, you can enable for example your Mac Desktop in Menu CrossOver|Configure|ManageBottle (choose your bottle)|Control Panel (double click on Wine Configuration)|Desktop Integration (you can now add all Mac folders you want!)
A free alternative is Wine. Running InterpretBank with Wine should work (we have not tested it) but seems a bit more complicated as with Crossover.
