Hello Luisa,

You can create new (or already populated) .txt files for non-translatables and store them in /cafetran/resources/placeables

These can then be selected for use in Preferences > General > Non-translatable fragments.

However, there is a simpler way that I recommend if you intend to use a different list every time:

- Keep using the standard non-translatable.txt file for storing any non-translatables that may apply universally, and create a project-specific glossary for storing your non-translatables (and running QA).

Indeed, when you create a new glossary, after you choose its filename and location, you can tick the checkbox "Non-translatable fragments only".

The result? Anything you add there will be counted as a non-translatable.

Hi there,

Would it be possible in forthcoming builds to change the designation of the Irish language to 'Irish (ga)' or 'Irish - Ireland (ga-IE)'. The current designation of 'Gaelic - Ireland (gd-IE) is incorrect and seems to cause conflict with MT engines which use the correct designation.

Many thanks.


In the next update, would it be possible to please indicate what non-translatable fragment is missing when doing QA tests? For the moment the message only states a general "Missing non-translatable fragment". Thanks!!!
