Should CafeTran be bundled with a second 27" monitor?

I was wondering: Since CafeTran offers so many resources (web resources, very advanced TM-Town integration, Total Recall with Big Data etc. etc.), is it still feasible to work with one monitor only?

Of course, you can use CafeTran on a 11" screen, but hey, who wants to miss all these valuable resources?

Totally agree! Jun 30, 2015

I finally got around to connecting a second monitor (nothing special, just an old Lenovo 1440x900) to my 19200x1200 Samsung, and I am loving it!

I use the second monitor for my HTML preview …

see: "2015-06-13 The Web browser menu has four new items: Open html page for source review, Open website for source preview, Google Translate and Bing Translator. It is now possible to have a synced HTML preview file of your translation projects!" (http://cafetranhelp.com/changelog )

and my KnowBrainer 2015 sidebar:

Ideally, all I want to see when I'm translating is this:

All%20I%20want%20to%20see.png

If I have to consult my resources, there's something wrong with CafeTran's algorithms or my settings, or my ready knowledge is lacking. It happens. In that case, I only want to check the resource I need for that particular issue, and I don't want to be distracted by any other resource.

One of the major advantages of CafeTran is that almost all resources can be integrated in its user interface, making it the ideal CAT tool for smaller screens.

Cheers,
