Bio: Bruno De Myttenaere a obtenu sa licence en traduction en 1975, à Bruxelles. Il a ensuite embrassé une carrière bancaire qui lui a permis de découvrir de nombreuses facettes de la banque. Il a mis un terme à sa carrière bancaire en 2009, comme cadre de direction, et a quitté la Belgique pour s’installer en France, à Annecy, dans les Alpes, où il a lancé son activité de traducteur freelance.

Depuis 2011, il utilise quotidiennement la reconnaissance vocale pour ses traductions, aussi bien dans SDL Studio 2011 (2014) que dans memoQ ou Wordfast Anywhere. A l’époque, cela lui a permis de respecter les délais pour la traduction d’un livre à laquelle il était occupé.

Bruno a 5 enfants et 10 petits enfants (et ce n’est pas fini…). Il aime la randonnée, le vélo, la lecture, la musique… et est comédien amateur : il a joué avec plusieurs troupes bruxelloises entre 1990 et 2009 et a écrit une pièce.

demo version of Dragon Naturally SpeakingNov 5, 2015

Hi Bruno,
Hope you don't mind if I'm asking a rather dumb question: is there a demo version of this software? I searched on Nuance website but there doesn't seem to be any.
I'm asking this because I want to know if it works for my native language, if I can dictate in Romanian because, otherwise, I would be paying for something that is useless to me.

Thank you.
I hope you can get back to me with a positive reply. Your valuable input will be much appreciated.

Hi Mihaela,

Unfortunately there is no demo version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Anyway, it is only available in six languages : English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.
Sorry about that.

Kind regards,

Bruno
