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


What's new:

  • Option to turn off the "greedy" exact matching for translation memories - see it in the TM options panel. With this option off, CafeTran does not stop the search at the found exact match(es) for the current segment, but it continues looking for fuzzy matches and fragments. Switching off this option is not recommended for slower computers and huge translation memories.
  • Automatic removal of the misspelled words from the Auto-completion list.
  • Splitting and joining of adjacent segments in the Filter mode as well.
  • Adjustments to the MS Word filter.

There is neither Final nor Edit status in CafeTran. I only mentioned about the possibility of adding it in the future.

Why a „final“ status if not even an Edited status is properly reflected?

 

Speaking of statuses, I think CTE segments will probably get  the "Final" status for segments in the future. Although I find it as the perfect example of oversophistication to finalize/confirm the already checked segments, but it will enable better mapping to  "Translated/Confirmed" status of sldxliff/mqxliff files.  

... and via the usual shortcut keys.

Possible, for "Translated/Confirmed" status of sldxliff/mqxliff files.


> As CT is a program that does not have menu entries for Copy, Paste, Cut


It doesn't need them in the menus because it has a fast access to those frequent actions via the buttons in the toolbar.

"Insert all exact matches and mark them as translated". Impossible, as any EM gets the status Translated. If you plan to finally create a state "Edited", this would be another thing.


Found one. The command "Edit" > "Select all" is not needed. As CT is a program that does not have menu entries for Copy, Paste, Cut, why then should it have one for Select all?

 

> "Insert all exact matches and mark them as checked"


But then, another user might also suggest:


"Insert all exact matches and mark them as locked"

"Insert all exact matches and mark them as translated" etc.


Instead, you can do:


1. Filter > Matches > Exact and context matches.

2.  Task > Set checked status for target segments.


Then, we keep having "clean GUIs, less clutter and less dialog boxes" and fewer menu items.

Not exactly, only a menu entry (or two).


Menu entries are much less disturbing and less intrusive than dialog boxes that pop up and cannot be stopped from popping up.


We can do it reverse and look for menu entries that are unnecessary. If there is one, we can put those above in. Deal?

 

> In combination with that a menu command "Insert all exact matches and mark them as checked"


and another one.

> (there are users in this forum that are in favor of clean GUIs, less clutter and less dialog boxes, just imagine)


And then, you suggest another menu.

In combination with that a menu command "Insert all exact matches and mark them as checked" could save a lot of clickediclick.

 

> option to show only the first segment in the "Repeated and propagated segments" filter.

The optrion is great, but the ever returning question when filtering is annoying (there are users in this forum that are in favor of clean GUIs, less clutter and less dialog boxes, just imagine). Maybe there is another solution possible: maybe one more menu entry does less harm than this permanently popping dialog box.

 

A prominent Durch user told me that you need to change the end of the URL from 0 to 1 do avoid the display above.

 

The new update of the Dropbox GUI displays a zip file as folder now (a kind of preview). Quite disturbing for not so experienced users, even I was hesitating. Maybe there should be made a switch to another service or preferentially at least a clear hint to klick the "Direct download" / "Save in my dropbpx" hint in the upper right corner of the screen.
