Here is a macro to create alternative source terms that have upper case letters after a dash (Bindestrich). You'll have to insert the dashes manually.


The result in the Term editor:


Note that the last alternative isn't generated automatically, yet. (I'll add that later.)

  • I noticed that if the source term is taken from the source text and contains upper case letters after dashes (like Binde-Strich), the upper case letter isn't converted to lower case correctly, when removing the dash. I'll fix that.
  • I think that I'll allow for insertion of a double dash, to indicate that an extra form has to be generated: Produkt-zuführ--menge generates Produkt-Zuführ-Menge and Produkt-Zuführmenge.
