I tried to start a document with 1000 words, and use a glossary with 1000 of the same words to try to add 1000 terms to my memory. I didn't work. What did I do wrong?
Yes, indeed, I've given this advice in the post. On second thought, I'd advise you to create any (generic) glossary on the fly, during the translation process.
Start with a project glossary and modify it to a generic glossary, as described/shown in:
You'll notice that thanks to the superbe ways to add terms to a glossary that CafeTran offers, you'll have a glossary of a couple of thousand terms in a snap.
And you know that only 5000 words or so cover for 95 % of any language ;).
Lenting:...thanks to the superbe ways to add terms to a glossary that CafeTran offers
There's absolutely nothing "superb" in the way CT offers to add terms to a glossary you shouldn't use. CT offers the same way for the superb TMX Memories for Segments. (moderated). (moderated).
Lenting: It’s just that I prefer to teach it this way
I don't understand that you're allowed to post that kind of offensive rubbish here.
At least he's trying (to teach/help). I also think his posts will probably come in handy to newbies.
It's easy to sit back and complain (while hiding in some far away country, and using a mysterious fake name), but a bit harder to stick your neck out and try something positive/constructive.
If you don't have anything nice too say, don't say anything at all. That's what my mama taught me.
Wdowi:...and try something positive/constructive
Without my activities from 2010 onward, you and that Lenting wouldn't have used CafeTran at all.
If you don't have anything nice too say, don't say anything at all
A forum like this, is not about "nice," it's about "useful." And useful my entries are, most recently under FAQ for newbies, especially under my header Wrong advice.
Lenting: Do you think that these are inviting for new visitors that consider to give CafeTran a try
You, on the other hand, just about claim that DeepL is all you need, no need for CafeTran, or useful resources like IATE or the DGT. Henk Sanderson already understands this, I hope Igor will follow soon. Don't forget that I'm a die-hard CT fan.
It’s not “wrong advice” that I give. It’s not your preferred workflow and use of CafeTran
As I demonstrated time after time, it's wrong. But the "wrongest" thing about it, is that you refuse to mention alternatives.
And talking about gratitude
I never talked about gratitude, you do.
I strongly advise you to remove the rest of that post NOW! You know I save everything that can and will be used against you (and everybody else). (moderated). (moderated).
Lenting: These are simply not the topics to teach new users first
This whole thing started (again) by a new user, looking for resources to start benefiting from CT. IATE is most definitely one of them. No rocket science needed. Basic CT stuff.
Start with the simple things first
Look who says. Regular expressions, Keyboard Maestro, AppleScript. I guess (but no doubt Igor can check) that more than 50% of all postings on this forum are yours, unfortunately Of those postings, more than 50% is complete and irrelevant (moderated), more than 50% deals with your so called bright ideas usually involving scripting that you let the KM people do, and another 50% is plain wrong. That adds up to more than 100%, but there are overlapping postings.
Lenting: Please calm down, Hans.
I would have been perfectly calm, if you wouldn't have provoked me, and still do. (moderated).
Lenting: ...we scheduled a training and just before it could take place, she got puzzled by your advice about T4T
Good news! That is, I hope she's safe now.
