CafeTran Espresso 2017 - Yeddi Update 23




CafeTran Espresso 2017 Yeddi update 23 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 .zip file into CafeTran's Dashboard - the first screen after the start.

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

What's new:

  • Masking of non-translatable fragments for MT online services. The feature is on by default and can be deactivated in Edit > Preferences > MT services tab. All non-translatable fragments longer than 3 characters are masked before being submitted for Machine Translation - both via API and the Web interface. You can see the masking effect in MT tabs. The unmasked translation result is displayed in the Matchboard and after the transfer to the target segment. The masking feature does not work with the right-click "Create TMX memory" MT function.
  • Added Euroglot as a web resource (see the Resources > Web menu) to CafeTran interface. 
  • A new "Find in page" keyboard shortcut in the Edit menu to search for word occurrences on a web page.
  • A keyboard shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+K) for deactivating a filter in the Filter menu.
  • Basic order registering and invoicing feature moved from "Project Configuration" panel to the Statistics display.

> And you said, you'd stop enhancing the feature pack.

Not true :) I only commented on avoiding to bloat the software interface with rare or exotic functions.

I see them purple. CT adjusted that color to the masking feature.

Very nice!

Even the info in the DeepL browser is zorro'd!





The new build of update 23 (2017101201) is available for download with the following:

- Added Euroglot as a web resource (see the Resources > Web menu) to CafeTran interface. This online resource requires login but there is a 10 minute free trial too.


Please update the program as described in the announcement post above.


I have some Web resources where the login does not work in CafeTran [Linux, latest CT version, Java 9] (no password error, it's like if the page gets simply refreshed). 

- Reverso -

- TheSketchEngine -

- LeRobert -

I recall I have been able to connect to Reverso and (a few times only, after several trials) to TheSketchEngine in the past. Never been able to use LeRobert.

At the same time, I have another resource where I have entered a code to remove ads and they are removed across sessions, so it does not seem to be a cookies issue.

Is this related to the Java change or anything else? Any pointers ?


Euroglot: Free translation 10 minutes a day!

Is that Euroglot any good? Where did they get their data?

They compiled them theirselves. Originally a spin-off from Radboud University. Neurologist.
Concept based so it can be enhanced with additional languages.

Thanks for the info!

When I click on the button for a free trial, a log in screen appears:

That may be so because either you already accessed it from another browser or you used up your daily free trial period.

I have some Web resources where the login does not work

Blocking JavaScript on a web page may not only block ads but can also affect its functionality (e.g login, search). Furthermore, the embedded Java web browser may not be ready to access some websites yet. I checked those sites without logging in there and they seem to display just fine. Reverso's search field is fully functional.
