Hi everyone,

I just want to install Tokenizer for OmegaT, but I really don't understand how to do. I know where to find the plugins folder in OmegaT but I don't know how to modifie the OmegaT launch script to make the language pairs work correctly. I have tried several times but I couldn't succeed.

Can you give a tip? I work on an iMac with an OS 10.6.8

Thanks in advance.

Hi Claude. Are you a member of the OmegaT Yahoo group?
This is an issue which has been discussed and clarified there - at least for Windows users. I had a problem getting the Danish tokenizer working and successfully followed the advice on the thread. If you can't find what you need, post your question and you'll get a very quick response.

Did you read the HowTo on the website? Nov 11, 2011

That's the best place to start.

No launch script on a Mac Nov 11, 2011

There is no launch script on a Mac.

So, either you get and unzip the generic version (e.g.,, and then you can follow the Linux howto, or you modify, which is actually a folder.


Basically, you put the content of the plugin in /plugins inside, and you modify Info.plist with the same information you would use on a command line, except it uses XML syntax.

For more detailed support, I would recommend, as David did, to subscribe to the OmegaT Yahoo support group.
