Sinomac is a web site based in Qingdao, People's Republic of China. It is known for localising Macintosh software, often churning out simplified Chinese software. It is also an Apple-recognised Macintosh user group and helped establish the Qingdao Apple User Group on March 20, 2005.

Background[]

In 2003, Sinomac released the very popular isQ, which turned Final (version 1.0) in late December 2004. This enabled Macintosh users under Mac OS X to use QQ, a popular IM platform on mainland China. Sinomac had a content partnership agreement with the Beijing Macintosh User Group and authorised CNAD-union.org to distribute its iSQ software.

Sinomac also released isDrop and ID3Mod. isDrop is akin to the Chinese Text Convertor by Apple Inc., but allows the user to drag and drop documents to convert to and from simplified and traditional Chinese. ID3Mod is a utility which resolves problems with music tags from PCs which turn out garbled in the Mac version of iTunes.

Closure[]

However, its website went offline sometime after 2011 and the sinomac.com URL has since been put up for sale.
