how can I write the German lower quotation marks in CafeTran, like
Thanks for your help and HAPPY SUNDAY
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).
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.

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.
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).
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)
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"))
