Hi there,

I have one laptop (Mac), one desktop (PC) and I work with both regularly. I want to be able to continue a project I started on either one of my computers.

I already tried opening the files created by Cafetran with my second computer. The project is opened but I cannot seem to edit nor continue what I have already started.

What should I do?

Thank you in advance,
Best,
Atakan

Export to Package, then Open project Feb 3, 2020

Hello Atakan,

Assuming this is a native project and you wish to copy the files locally between the two computers, here is one method you can try:

- On computer A, with the project open, in CafeTran go to Project > Export and Exchange > To Package and select an export location. Close CafeTran.

- Copy the .ctp file (a compressed archive containing the project files) to computer B.

- On computer B, Open CafeTran, then Open project > select the ctp

I have never encountered an uneditable CafeTran project, so if the issue still occurs with the above method, please provide more details.

Merci beaucoup Jean,

Yes, it is a native project.
I have now tried the method you advised but the issue persists.
I see the project but I can't edit anything.
In the previous versions of Cafetran, I remember there used to be a 'Start' button but I don't see it anymore. So I am a little bit lost now.

I am on the latest update in both computers (10.7.1 Doughnut), I don't know what else I could provide unless you guide me.

Thanks again,
Atakan

Ah, I see…

In a recent update (CafeTran Espresso 10.6.3 Brownie - https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/support/discussions/topics/6000059928) the Start button was removed for native projects. Now, CafeTran begins the translation right after the creation of the new project.

There is nothing to do, now. You should be able to start editing your proj

Do you use the latest version on both computers? I recommend it.
