Hello,

I am planing to switch to CafTran, but I never used it before.

When I am learning a new software, I always like to have a printed version of the manual where I can take notes, use bookmarks and read in my "off" time.

Is there something like that for CafTran?

Thanks!

And for a good reason, development is fast, very fast.

However, there are "Solutions," written by the developer, that you can find here: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/solutions
They are pretty good, and very short. And there are "Reference Documents" written and maintained by user Jean [too difficult Greek name, too difficult for me anyway] where you should be able to find anything you need: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000186313-reference-documents

And theres the Help group, called Discussions, if the above is not enough: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/discussions

Cheers,

Hans

CafeTran Espresso Mar 30

Hello Egmont,

Just another CafeTran user here. I suppose you mean CafeTran Espresso (in that case, could you edit your post title?).

While there is no manual per se, there are various resources that can help you get started and take it further.

In CafeTran Espresso 2018, if you go to Help > Contents, you get redirected to https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/solutions which is the official Knowledge base, featuring short videos and explanations covering various subjects.

Additionally, in the following link, you will find several Reference Documents I have devised: https://github.com/idimitriadis0/TheCafeTranFiles/wiki

"Getting comfortable" is targeted at beginners, the rest aims to serve any CafeTranslator. The documents cover the following: Preferences, Menu and Interface, TM options, File formats and Project templates.

Feedback is welcome.

I can create a PDF version of these if you wish so, otherwise any Markdown to PDF converted will do (if you download the .md files in the Code tab).

For support questions, you can just create a new thread in the “CafeTran support” section of the ProZ forum, or head to the official CafeTran Espresso discussions: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/discussions

Jean

Yes, CafeTran Espresso Apr 23

Thanks for the resources, I will need some time to get through.

Would you mind to post the guides on "https://github.com/idimitriadis0/TheCafeTranFiles/wiki" as a PDF file?

With "Getting comfortable" in the first chapter.

TheCafeTranFiles in PDF format Apr 23

Hello,

I have uploaded TheCafeTranFiles in PDF format as requested (each reference document is in a separate file).

They are available for download (along with the original Markdown files) at the Code section of the GitHub repository: https://github.com/idimitriadis0/TheCafeTranFiles

Please note the developer has recently updated the videos and information included in several of the official Knowledge Base (Solutions) articles: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/solutions

Make sure you check these as well.

Jean
