The easiest way to try Tradumàtix is installing it in a USB drive. You will be able to use it in any computer without affecting its hard drive. You will need three things:
A USB drive. The more capacity it has, the better: 2 GB is enough; 4 GB is adviced. Caveat! Prevent data loss by creating a backup copy of the USB drive or use a USB without data.
A file containing the data of the operating system. You can download it at: serim-web.uab.cat/tradumatix (choose the most recent .iso file).
A program to burn the ISO file to the USB. We will use UNetbootin, free and cross-platform software.
Download the ISO file, run UNetbootin and select the file as the screenshot below shows:
Select “Disk image” and click on the browse button (...). The file explorer will open and you will be able to select the ISO file. Double-check that you have selected the correct USB drive under Type and click OK.
The installation process can take a few minutes. In the meantime, you can read how to load a liveUSB operating system from your computer in Unetbootin's webpage: “If you used the «USB Drive» install mode: After rebooting, boot from the USB drive. On PCs, this usually involves pressing a button such as Esc or F12 immediately after you turn on your computer, while on Macs, you should hold the Option key before OSX boots.”
