Hello dear CafeTran Users,
I'm would like more information about the Preferences > Memory options. Some entires are self-explaining, but with others you don't know exactly how the program will behave when changing them.
I have changed the 'Java Memory Size' to 6144 because I have 8GB memory and want to ensure fast processing, and it IS fast with this, no doubt.
The program behavior I would like to achieve by changing these values (if possible) is:
I would like CafeTran to concentrate on subsegments of 2-words and more when searching and displaying fragment hits / fragments with context alone and skipping 1-word expressions. Also I noticed that not every 2-word expression will be displayed, even when contained in the memories (yes I have checked the Fragment checkbox and the 'Fuzzy & Hits' choice), for example if a sentence in the memory contains the expression 'online ressources', CT will display a match for 'online' and one for 'ressources'; but I would like CT to skip such 1-words and display 'online ressources', even if it doesn't find the translation for it, so he may display the segments 1 | 2 | 3 etc.. with the context containing 'online ressources'.
Is this possible, and is there some documentation explaiining these options?
Thanks very much,

I wrote an article about my preferences.

I don't think this can be achieved by fine-tuning the settings. In AA, CT always inserts (if enabled) the longest match, even if the resource doesn't have the highest priority assigned to it, but if the word are non-sequential, they will be displayed separately. For that reason, you should add as many fragments as you can to your Memory for Terms/Fragments. And not to a TXT glossary, since in that case, you won't benefit from any hits of the individual words in the glossary.

Try lowering Edit > Preferences > Memory tab > Subsegment hits threshold (from default 3 to 1). Then, CT should display the longer hits with even one occurrence.
