Hello all,
I was just wondering why the excellent CafeTran is not listed in the box of CAT tools/general software in my Proz profile settings. I had to insert it myself via the 'add' box at the end, which is fine, but seems to imply that CafeTran is somehow not one of the 'top' CAT tools. In my opinion it definitely is.

Just contact "2NL", wondering why he didn't contact you already?

By the way Nov 25, 2015

I also do think that CafeTran should be listed in the CAT-tool list, as another minor/less used/or less popular tool, as long there is a enough (mayor) audience/interest for it.

Especially given the fact CafeTran splashes advertising money on ProZ...

Thank you for replies... Nov 26, 2015

I actually resisted using CAT tools for ages. CafeTran is the only one I have positively enjoyed using, so I suppose I'm a bit evangelical.

But when you start a new topic, CT is there in the list. Just have a look.

she meant the list of software you own, which can be edited in the "Proz.com profile updater" Nov 27, 2015

Josephine meant here:

The reason it isn’t there yet is Igor hasn't asked them to add it yet. If one of us emailed Proz, I'm sure they'd add it too!

It is already listed Jan 21, 2016

I have noticed that this option is now available in the Proz.com user's profile - Software / CAT tool list.

it is missing in Credential & Software Jan 21, 2016

See http://www.proz.com/translator-directory/

Select a language pair and search, and then look at Credential & Software > Software list. CafeTran is not listed. Strangely enough TransSuit2000 is still there!

Yes, still a gap... Jan 22, 2016

@Selcuk Akyuz
Yes, you're right - it's now appearing in the Profile Updater software list, but not in the Translator/interpreter Search Directory under software.

CafeTran listed Apr 11, 2016

Apologies for being a bit late to this, but wanted to follow up and make sure nothing is still missing. I am seeing CafeTran listed in the appropriate locations - ProZ.com profile owners can add CafeTran Espresso as a software/Cat tool via their ProZ.com profile and people searching the directory, or posting a job, can list CafeTran Espresso as a required/preferred CAT Tool.

If there are other locations that have been missed, please post to this thread and let me know.

Thanks

Drew
