Metatexis: Setting spaces as end of segment markers

I have the latest Metatexis version 2.4 and I am trying to use it for translation from Thai to English. However, since Thai usually uses no punctuation (except spaces to separate sentences and some phrases), each translation segment turns up as a full paragraph.

I have gone to Document Options=>Segmentation and added a space to the list of end-of-segment markers, but it does not seem to register.

I can achieve my purpose by replacing all spaces with periods(.) in the Thai document before I start translating, but I would rather be able to set spaces as the end-of-segment marker.

Any help would be appreciated.

Add "{32}" Feb 8, 2005

Hi Marcus,

do not add the space character, but "{32}" to the list of segment delimiters and untick the checkbox right next before you click the button Add.

This should do the trick.

In the next version of MetaTexis. The list of segment delimiters will be configured automatically when Thai is selected as source language.

Best regards

Version 2.51 of MetaTexis released Feb 10, 2005

Hi Marcus,

last night I have release version 2.51 of MetaTexis.

This version version should handle text in Thai language correctly by default.

Please check.
