CafeTran Espresso 2015 Update 10 - with Colors

Hey CafeTranslators,

The update 10 to CafeTran Espresso 2015 is available for download. The users who purchased the program after 22 April 2015, in the new licensing system, do not have to install it anew. They can update it via a simple drag and drop procedure as follows:

1. Run CafeTran.

2. Download file from here (do not unzip or rename the file after downloading) and place it on your desktop.

Note: On Mac OSX, the Safari web browser may unzip the file automatically after downloading. To prevent this, just use the right-click menu and choose the "Download Linked File" command.

3. Drag and drop the downloaded file into the Project Dashboard and restart the program. First time!

4. Drag and drop the downloaded file into the Project Dashboard and restart the program. Second time!


This update includes the new icon sets which need to be placed in the new directories. The first drag and drop update action above prepares CafeTran for the creation of the new directories. The second drag and drop update action creates the new directories for icons and transfers the new icons there.

The update includes the following changes:

1. New colored icons. The user can switch between colored and monochromatic icons via the menu View > Appearance > Monochromatic icons.

2. Display of highlighted and colored text in the Project segments pane for the Ms Office and LibreOffice documents.

3. Filtering on the highlighted or colored text.

4. After the export of the target document, CafeTran gives the option to either view the translated document or open the folder containing the document.

5. Conversion of TXT glossaries to TMX format handles the synonyms now.

As the build includes changes to the filters for Ms Office and LibreOffice files, please finish any uncompleted projects with the previous version before applying this update.

I'll care about that when I get a retina screen. ;-)

Oops, that should have been: View > Appearance > Colors > Toolbars color

Dunno what's new under the hood, yet, but the new icons look just great.

Yes they look good. But some of them, e.g. the two globes for web searches, are frayed on an iMac Retina. I think that these (free) icons were saved in a hi-res, but haven't been optimised in the design stage. If that makes any sense. But it's already a big improvement.

>I'll care about that when I get a retina screen. ;-)

Okidoki. They are less glossy. And when a regular Thunderbolt screen is standing next to a Retina screen, the letters on the Thunderbolt screen really look pixely. Well, that's the case with every improvement, I guess: there's no way back.

I'm sure Igor will take care of that, maybe not as a priority, let's see and wait, CT is work in progress.

Hi Igor,

Great colored icons! And additional useful features. Thanks!



Thanks a lot for the beautiful new coloured icons!


The new icons, together with the newish background colour, make CT looks great!

And thanks for the glossary converter!!!


Dear Igor,

>> 5. Conversion of TXT glossaries to TMX format handles the synonyms now.

How do you do this? I just imported a tab-delimited glossary from Memory > Import > Import tab delimited memory, but synonyms are not split.

Where am I mistaken?



Hi Masato,

You need to import via Memory > Import > Import entries from glossary.


What does Memory > Import > Import tab delimited memory do?

Hi Michael,

It imports Wordfast TMs.


Hi Michael

It imports a tab-delimited text glossary (or glossary-form memory [source segment [TAB] target segment]) that is not opened as a CT tab, as a TMX file.
