How do I download Rosetta®, the "software translation technology", to my MC815LLA, OS X Lion?  I'm led to believe it can migrate/translate(/transfer?) my PowerPC (Tiger 10.4.11) 'stuff' to my brand new Intel (10.7.3)-a Big Jump, I know.

     URGENT:  To Whom Has THE KNOWLEDGE,

 

     How do I download Rosetta®, the "software translation technology", to my MC815LLA, OS X Lion?  I'm led to believe it can help me migrate/translate(/transfer?) my PowerPC (Tiger 10.4.11) 'stuff' to my brand new Intel (Lion 10.7.3)---A BIG Jump---;  believe me, I KNOW!  Like falling off a horse-drawn tram into the seat of an F-18.  Goodness Gracious!

 

     Regarding a somewhat similar problem:  "How to get the phone book and calendar out of my Nokia cell phone ( smart?)?"  The Nokia requires iSync (no longer supported in Lion) & a Nokia plugin.

 

     Partitioning off 30(?) to 50(? ) Gigs and installing Snow Leopard was confirmed as a "do-able" by "Apple Care" (AC)____

 

     My Question:  Could rebuild my iCal & Address Book on the Snow Leopard, using iSync (presuming there is a plugin for 10.6) & then, migrate them to Lion.

 

     The Nokia was iSync'd, March '11with the Mac Cube HD  >[currently residing in an "Enclosure"] :     Mac Cube, OS 9 Extended, journaled, (maxed out w/OS X  10.4.11).

 

     Treated the Nokia as the Primary or Default.  It was the FIRST time, ever,  that I had a copy of my  phone's "contacts".

 

     Everyones external contacts(+notes) data is of the utmost importance!

 

     My Nokia's 'Contacts' (phone book) is 13 yrs. old.  Started 1998 with Voicestream (®, ™?).  Transferid "electronically" by the service provider.  Built from 40 years of personal phone books in DC.  Ex. Asst., B'days, Spose's B'days,  tire size, -pins, Pswds. reminders-, etc., etc., etc., ad infinitum.

 

     That's not a solution for the files, folders, docs, etc. in the PowerPC apps.  For instance, and in particular, iWork; templates, Stationary Letter Heads, archived letter files, etc., etc.

 

     Given the FEAR of loosing some

 

     As always, Thanks in advance,

     Specifically to you Experts
