Important! Please complete all your translation projects in your current CafeTran version before updating.

What's new:

  • Easier selection of a single translation memory from the list of loaded TMs in the Memory menu for various tasks. The user does not need to select the TM tab first to indicate the specific TM.
  • Recognition of .xhtml file extension for HTML filter.
  • Uniform color for search buttons in the search bar.
  • In "Shorten match information" option of the Matchboard, the length of the shortened resource name is increased to 4 characters.

The first three are welcome improvements, thanks! Fourth is OK as well. Regarding the "Shorten match information", for MT engines, I suggest that the following short names, all written in caps, are applied, so as to ensure these have the same width:

Google Translate = GOTR

Microsoft Translator = MSTR

MyMemory = MYME

Yandex.Translate = YAND (or YATR)

Currently, the MT short names appear like this:


 The 4-letter short names for MT services are in the new build (2018030401). The build also lets the user change the color of the Search bar at the top of the UI via View > Colors > Searchbar color menu. Please perform the update as described in the announcement above.  

Thank you, Igor.

For an even more streamlined appearance, the length of the green background could also be made uniform across MT engines in a later build.


For anyone wishing to use the previous all-green color in the Search bar (which blends well with other UI elements in CTE), I think it is R: 17 G: 73 B: 73.

The new build (2018030502) of update 1 is available. It improves Ms PowerPoint filter by including diagrams' data for translation. Please perform the update as described in the announcement above. If you are in the middle of PowerPoint document translation, please update after you finish your current project.

If there is inverted  text in Word, I can't see anything in the grid in Cafetran, because it is white on white. Is there an option to unhide it?

See View > Themes > Replace document colors option or switch to a dark theme for this project.
