Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR TRANSLATING MESSAGES BETWEEN DIFFERENT ELECTRONIC FORMS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE CONVERSION DE MESSAGES ENTRE DIFFERENTS FORMATS ELECTRONIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method translates an incoming electronic message (136), for instance an email document in HTML or other format, into a format suitable for transmission to a generally non-network device, such as a facsimile machine. The arriving message is routed to and processed by a network interface station, which captures the incoming message, checks a subscriber's desired output format and destination, and converts the message to that form, invoking native applications for conversion if necessary. Automatic call back can be programmed if the transmission fails, or the system can be set to store the message for the recipient to dial in. Users not having a personal computer and/or an Internet service account can thereby still receive electronic messages such as email, Web page (144) information and others in a manner transparent to sender and receiver.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de convertir un message électronique entrant (136), notamment un message électronique en HTML ou sous un autre format, en un format compatible avec la transmission vers un dispositif normalement hors réseau, tel qu'un télécopieur. Le message est acheminé sur une station d'interface réseau qui capture le message entrant, vérifie le format et la destination souhaités définis par l'abonné et convertit le message en ce format, faisant appel à des applications d'origine pour la conversion. Le rappel automatique peut être programmé si la transmission échoue ou le système peut être défini de manière à stocker le message pour le destinataire par réseau commuté. Les utilisateur ne possédant pas un PC et/ou un compte d'utilisateur réseau peuvent malgré tout recevoir des messages électroniques, des informations de pages Web (144) et d'autres messages de manière transparente.
