Well Anne, if you have some translated texts and the aligner and/or
OmegaT are not suitable for that kind of texts (maybe for html documents
could be easier) I suggest to go back to manual translation if you have
a close deadline.

Maybe we can try to improve the translation process afterwards with the
aim to improve the update of documents and so on, probably asking for
help at OmegaT mailing list.

Best regards
