thanks.

It's sometimes difficult to change habits Mar 3, 2011

I guess it is only because you are so used to the horizontal viewing that the new way seems difficult for you.

In fact, my personal experience as well the one of many other users is that it is much more convenient to work with the left-right tabular approach because it offers many advantages such as:

1. No need to open/close segments anymore, you can move around freely within the segments.

2. You have a better view of the context because you see all sentences of one language beneath each other. One big criticism many translators have towards CAT tools is that they force you to work sentence by sentence. While this is still true in Studio (as in any CAT tool), you see at least the sentences of one language that belong together while this was impossible in the old approach because you would see a sequence of alternating source and target sentences.

While I can understand your reaction (you are not the only one), I am confident that you will start liking the new method after you have worked with it a while.

Walter

better to choose our preferred viewing mode Mar 4, 2011

Hi Walter,
Thanks for your detailed account! Yes, it will be better if the CAT tools can leave the translators options to choose our preferred viewing mode. Need some time to pick things up then.
