No need to pre-segment TTX files

Hi all,

Igor is constantly improving CafeTran, at a pace that is hard to keep up with for us usersicon_wink.gif.

Many new features have not been documented in the Help yet, since Igor is focussing on development currently. So if you're in need of a feature, chances are, it already has been implemented. You can ask here or directly at

One nice feature that is quite unique (AFAIK only Swordfish offers it too) is the ability to pre-segment SDL TTX files. No need to fire up Windows first, start WorkBench, pre-translate etc. etc. Just put all TTX files in one folder, start CafeTran, click on Translate TTX or SDLXLIFF files, select the folder containing the TTX files and Bob's your uncle ...

CafeTran can only pre-segment TTX files that are completely unsegmented, however.
