Apertium on Mac OS X
You probably want Prerequisites for Mac OS X which gives you all the dev tools you might want – this page has more in-depth documentation on compiling the core/dev tools from source.
There are two main options for installing, "system" and "local":
- Apertium on Mac OS X (System) — The fastest and easiest way is to install in your main system path (that is in
/usr/local), choose this if you have root access on your system.
- Apertium on Mac OS X (Local) — The second way is to install locally (that is in your home directory, e.g.
/Users/myname/Local), this is more contained but slower and more difficult, choose this if you don't have root, or want to make the Apertium installation completely separated from your main system. This can be better for developers.
If you do not have any experience compiling source code, you can also follow the more user-friendly Mac guide Apertium on Mac OS X (User), which walks you through every step.
