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.

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.

@Michael: neuro-linguistic

It works okay here. They may not allow to login from two browsers at the same time. Log out in Safari and then login in CT.

Here you can see what Euroglot looks like in the browser. Note that Euroglot is concept-based, in contrast to most dictionaries and online termbases (I guess).

Dragging over the result in the browser (like in DeepL) is supported too: the result will be transferred to CafeTran's target editor. The company told me that the API is almost ready, this will (hopefully) allow advanced searching options (like searching for all words in the source segment).

Anyway, you can now manually query around 300.000 words and expressions and grammatical info in six languages (DE, IT, EN, NL, SP, FR).


You don't need to copy and paste from the source segment to Euroglot web form as shown in your video. Just use CafeTran's Resource search function which you have hidden.

Right. Thank you!

Would it be possible to set the SL and TL automatically?

The Close links in the Euroglot pane don't seem to work. Perhaps this can be fixed?

> Would it be possible to set the SL and TL automatically?

It is just one click to switch language pair on the web interface. CT cannot modify what is displayed on webpages.

CafeTran just displays the results in their webpage in the embeded web browser. There is nothing that can be fixed there from CT. 

@Igor Thank you for responding.

I don't use "Block JavaScript" on these resources.

I can understand some websites give trouble to the Java web browser (I tried again accessing Dropbox after updating to Java 9, but it still does not seem to work, the page loads endlessly after the login). Still, the system browser is working very well, considering, and it's a huge time-saver for the resources that do work.

Anyway, it's fine to use TheSketchEngine on an external browser, and LeRobert was a trial.

However, Reverso is a resource I use everyday. In the past, I was able to connect to my account, in order to lift the display limit for the searches (when you perform a search, past a certain number of parallel results, it asks you to connect to you account to see more). They must have updated the website and now, the login does not work. 

I also have a more serious display issue since today on this website, but I'll try some more steps before reporting.

Thanks again


Jean, if you don’t mind me asking: how does TSE help you?
