Migrating from Informatica

I was wondering if there is an easy (relatively speaking) way to convert Informatica ETL Jobs to Talend?
Thx

I don't thing so. Probably Informatica jobs are saved as XML description files? In this case you can try to interpret them and create Talend Job script (only in the Enterprise version available).
talend use also the xml format to save the jobs but this format is horrible complex.

@curios_george,
I just came across this post and would like to recommend AnalytiX LiteSpeed Conversion.
http://analytixds.com/products/litespeed-conversion
AnalytiX Litespeed Conversion (ALC) provides a robust framework that automates the conversion of Informatica mappings to Talend.
ALC is software as a service that allows you to easily move from your current ETL Platform to the other ETL platform of your choice (in this case Talend), saving 70%, and turning what seemed like an insurmountable obstacle, into a brief engagement. The automated process uses the power of AnalytiX LiteSpeed Conversion to reverse engineer out of any ETL platform (Informatica, Datagstage, AbInitio, ODI, SSIS etc), and forward engineer into Talend, while packaging all of the documentation and rich history in our AnalytiX Mapping Manager solution - Now you can change the past, and manage into the future!
