how can I write the German lower quotation marks in CafeTran, like
Thanks for your help and HAPPY SUNDAY
With Windows you can build a shortcut with AutoHotkey or with PhraseExpress.
With a Mac this is pretty easier and you might find this PDF quite useful:
(and please note, the German lower quotation marks on Mac indeed are "Alt + ^", not "Alt + Shift + W"))
I would use AutoHotkey, but you could also assign two text shortcuts right inside CT. For example,
to insert „ -> just type ‘qql’
to insert “ -> just type ‘qqr’
(this is of course just an example; you could assign any shortcuts you like; whatever's easy to remember)
If Patrick is on OS X, he should use the PDF mentioned above, nothing else. No need to use another solution (though Keyboard Maestro is a nice tool).

It is! But since CafeTran is a Java app (porting it to Swift would be marvellous ;)), the interaction between CafeTran and Keyboard Maestro isn't straight forward to implement.
Apple Mail is another app that changes the quotation marks.
Anyway, this is a behavior in CT that in my humble opinion should not be changed. This automated change/replacement of the quotation mark can be a disaster in the cases where you need the "normal" quotation marks, e.g. in any HTML/database commands etc.pp.
As further help, you can also set these quotation marks in Preferences > General > Surround with characters. Then you might select any text to surround it with German quotation marks. A very nice feature.
And yet another help, if you use
You can also have automatic conversion of quotes:
You'll have to add the space before the opening quote... (and that makes that conversion won't work always).
