CafeTran Espresso 2017 Harbinger - Release Candidate 2

Hello everyone,


CafeTran Espresso 2017 Harbinger aka Release Candidate 2 is available for download. The update can be performed via the Drag & 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.

Alternatively, you can install the update via the Update button in the Help > About panel instead of dragging and dropping.

What's new:

  • Improved automatic transfer of term's surrounding tags with complex tagging in non-CafeTran projects.
  • Fixed the display of the glossary matches with source-side synonyms.
  • Check and update of file paths in multiple documents (glued) projects when they are moved to another computer.
  • Fix to the MS Excel filter - recognizing number-formatted cells which still contain the text instead of numbers.
  • Fixed an issue in the Release Candidate 1 with opening the memory via the Memory menu. The matches were only shown when the TM was opened via the Dashboard.
  • This update also includes an experimental feature of synchronizing CafeTran's target segment editor with some external editors. It may be particularly useful to the users who enjoy some advanced editing functions in their favorite editing environment. It allows getting the best of both worlds. The details and list of the currently supported editors are shown in this article. The feedback from the users who also translate (or dictate) in external editors is welcomed.


Is there a way to have the content of CafeTranBond.txt deleted when pressing Cmd+S and the text has been transferred to CafeTran?

I am not sure what you wish to achieve but setting the option in BBEdit > Preferences > Application > Automatically refresh documents should ensure the proper synchronization between the editors. 

I have just updated the latest Release Candidate version adding two system text editors to the list of external editors which can synchronize with CafeTran's target segment editor. These are WordPad on Windows and TextEdit on Mac OSX. The change may be important for the users of Dragon dictation software as it fully supports the system editors.

Please download and apply this update again.

I just confirmed this fix. Now, CT displays only the entry that matches, instead of all the synonyms. Thanks!


I just noticed the TM filer button does not work. Please check.
