CafeTran Espresso 2017 - Yeddi Update 9



CafeTran Espresso 2017 Yeddi update 9 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:

  • Project templates. This update adds the templates feature which stores in a template file the selected CafeTran resources from the Dashboard (Total Recall memories, TMX translation memories, glossaries and Web resources), language pair, windows layout and colors to use for a new project. See the new menu button next to the language pair boxes in the Dashboard to save or load project templates.
  • Total Recall memories with segments in regional variants of a given language are recognized automatically in the projects with a different variant for the same language.
  • Remembering the state of the new previously unconfirmed segments when leaving them unfinished in the target segment editor (e.g. by switching to the Filter view).
  • Resetting the preferences does not reset the language pair, the list of recent projects and selected resources in the Dashboard.
  • New segment navigation command - "Add segment to memory and go to next untranslated segment" (default keyboard shortcut - CTRL+ENTER).

The new build of update 9 is available (2017051101) with two minor changes:

  • remembering projects' location settings in project templates.
  • keeping target segment editor's contents when joining current empty target segment with the next non-empty target segment.

To apply this build, please follow the steps described in the first announcement post of this topic.

Thanks, I am new to this. I am looking around and don't know where to find the latest build.

Is it still 2017051001? I am used to programs that allow you to check for updates and download them from within the program.

Thanks for your help.

IK: Project templates

A KB entry, please.


"Remembering the state of the new previously unconfirmed segments when leaving them unfinished in the target segment editor (e.g. by switching to the Filter view)."

Fantastic! Thanks!!


Default Scope search shortcut has been moved by default to : Ctrl+Maj+G (was Ctrl+Enter)

No tooltip for this button:


No tooltip for this button

There is one down at the status bar.

Yes. But this is also true for the X at the left of that button. It has a tooltip and a descriptive text at the status bar.


After this update, Memory > Open memories folder > Filter is not working.


It has a tooltip and a descriptive text at the status bar.

The shorter tooltip right at that new button is a good idea. Thanks!  

The new build (2017050802) of the update 9 got the tooltip for the templates button. The memory filter issue has been fixed too.

I am not sure, but wouldn't it make sense to integrate the sub-menu into the main menu?



Project templates





Open project template...

Save project template...

I simply assume that the common user might have not more than ten templates, and this would keep the UI tidy. And one click less...

By the way, the points do not make sense for "Open project template", and the other menu command should be "Save project template as..." (as there always pops up the Save as dialog box).

Igor, thank you for this update!

Just a heads up: I have noticed that with this version, nothing happens when I try to Add or Replace a document, which I have been able to reproduce in a few test projects. Remove document works as expected.

Okay, I'd like to addd my mustard to, since this new templates feature obviously is a work in progress that is demand-driven ;).

In my office, specific clients come with files in specific formats, e.g. Transit.

CafeTran can detect file formats like MS Office, but not e.g. Transit.

So for my situation it would be very handy if the project for client El Specifi CO. would also store the file format Transit.
