MetaTrans, like MetaCheck, runs from the operating system command line, so it is suitable for incorporating into large batch (scripted) conversion runs. MetaTrans returns an error code that reports on 26 different errors that might be encountered during the conversion process, so you have fine control over the progression of the conversion process.
There is a rich set of command line options that allow you to tailor the conversion process for your needs, including the ability to specify the name of the metafile (ICN) that is one of the requirements of the S1000D2.3 profile.
MetaTrans can be programmed to remove or change identifying text (e.g., file names or company identification) within the CGMs themselves during the conversion process.
MetaTrans runs on the Windows, Linux, and Solaris operating systems.
