I have just installed the trial version of Swordfish III (Mac, 10.8.2 Mountain Lion). Two questions:

1. Why does nothing happen when I go to "preferences" in the drop-down menu?
2. Where is the "select source language" drop-down menu (I can't find it)?

Swordfish options Oct 27, 2012

Swordfish is a cross-platform application and must present configuration options in a consistent way in all operating systems. All user preferences are configured from the "Options" menu. There is nothing in "Preferences".

Source language code is asked when you convert files to XLIFF. Check the second page of the conversion dialog by clicking on the "Next >" button.

Check the User Guide, specially the Getting Started section (press F1 to open it).
