Hi,

CafeTran now automatically handles language-specific ligatures when switching a word from all lowercase to Initial uppercase and the word starts with a ligature.

So the Dutch word:

ijsselmeer

becomes

IJsselmeer

when given the Ctrl+= treatment.

Yet another example of how CafeTran focuses on the needs of translators primarily icon_wink.gif.

So, which ligatures do you like to be handled this way?

Hans

MAC shortcut? Oct 6, 2012

Hi Hans,

Is this Ctrl+= a MAC shortcut? Which shortcut is used in Windows? And again, is this a beta build or official release?

If I remember correctly, there was no KBS for Windows, and I'd be surprised if there was one now. Why? Beats me.

Beta, I'm afraid. Since Igor doesn't make clear what build you can download from the CafeTran site, it's almost impossible to know. I run a version of the CafeTran.jar that was apparently created last Sunday, September 30, and ctrl+= doesn't work for ligatures (Mac).
I think there's room for improvement here…

Cheers,

Hans (v1.0)

available as trial version Oct 7, 2012

My version is older than, received last month (September 11th). The latest build (beta or not, I am not sure) with Transit filter is already available as a trial version at http://www.cafetran.com/download.html

But I always receive upgrade files directly from Igor and this build was not announced at http://groups.google.com/group/cafetranslators

Keyboard shortuts Oct 7, 2012

Hi Selcuk,

It is the same shortut for Windows. If it doesn't work for your keyboard, you can customize it and any other shortcut in CafeTran keymap editor. Please check Edit | Options | Keymap tab.
