That is strange ... well you can also download it from my server where I 
have a copy of RC10 for Windows including Java.

OmegaT does not install Java itself - only the bundel-version coms with 
the bits and pieces of Java. By clicking on OmegaT.bat in the subfolder 
you start the program without installing it on your computer: so no 
entries in the registry and no problems when there is an update, since 
you don't need to install it. OmegaT, as much as I remember, has no 
localisation in Hungarian for now - so it would load with English as

Well normally that should be installed separately if you use the version 
without Java. You can get it from here:
(sorry for some reason I cannot force the website to show up in English 
... my System is in German so I suppose it automatically reads that info).

Well you need, for example Chatzilla installed if you use Firefox as 
browser - or other chat software. If you don't want to install this you 
can also go through various web interfaces:

    * http://www.bitshuffle.org/cgiirc/
    * http://java.freenode.net/index.php
    * http://brujula5.brujula.net/cgi-bin/cgi/irc.cgi

If you have problems in using these, please let me know which one you 
are trying to use so I can help with descriptions.

Off to bed :-) Good night!
