Hi CafeTran users,
CafeTran Espresso 2016 Ichiro - Update 12 is available for download. The update can be performed via the Drag & Drop procedure as follows:
1. Run CafeTran.
2. Download 20160726_update.zip 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.
4. Drag and drop the downloaded file into the Project Dashboard and restart the program. Second time!
The step 4 above is only for the users who missed the preview (Harbinger) and Ichiro updates with the new icon sets.
On Mac OS X, the Java 1.8.0_77 update broke the drag and drop function in CafeTran. The fix is available starting from CafeTran's Update 4. If you skipped all the updates from 4 to 11, please choose the downloaded update file via the Help > About > Install Update button instead of dragging and dropping it into the Project Dashboard.
The Ichiro update 12 focuses on CafeTran interface to the new service available for ProZ.com and TM-Town.com users. It enables translators to share the information about their translation projects interactively. CafeTran users can view and post messages via CafeTran without the need to switch to their web browsers. There is also a filter option to view posts coming only from other CafeTran users and reply to such posts. Although ProZ.com emphasizes the promotional aspect of this feature for translators as well as the ability to track their projects history, designing the chat-like interface I focused on the social side of it. Hopefully, in the near future, translators will also be able to share the photos straight from CafeTran's interface i.e. to show their picturesque translation scenery or the cafe where they enjoy having lunch, and perhaps invite other translators working nearby, in a sort of CafeTran spirit. As it is a new feature, I would be happy to receive any feedback on using it in CafeTran. Thanks!
