Compare length of source and target segment

Proof of concept:

Rudimentary Keyboard Maestro macro attached.

Did you know CafeTran already displays the character count for source and target segments?

Open any project and browse to a segment.

On the status bar (bottom), you see the language pair and two numbers separated with a ": "

It's the source vs the target character count!

Thank you for pointing that out! The idea of the macro is a simple framework that could be enhanced: adding a condition to only display a message when the target is n chars longer (or 105%) or when it exceeds the length stored in a csv file (source segment, allowed length) etc.

Good job for investigating that. A length warning would be helpful indeed in specific projects where the current CT provided info is not enough.
