So we have now:

Guess what my client asks me to do:

Make sure that the translations in column C no not exceed the source in A with more than 2 characters.


Afraid to ask for (yet) another length check option.

Edit: It looks like this relative length check works in both directions. Is this useful? (Personally I'm only interested in targets that are longer than their sources.)

Promo exchange available? Jul 26

Hans,
Sorry for off-topic here, but do you, by any chance, know if they have a promotional offer like Surrender-Your-Third-Party-License-and-Get-CafeTran-License-for-Free?icon_biggrin.gif

Hi Jean,

After today's release of another major CAT tool, I am pretty serious. However I understand that software licences are not a pack of cigarettes that can be easily exchanged form a cigarette promo model. So I just have to turn it into a joke.

CafeTran Espresso 2018 is seriously good, that's why it is such fun to use it.
