Now that Anchovy works on Mac again ( ), I used it for bilingual term extraction from a TMX file, to compare the results with those from SynchroTerm (〈=en ).

To my surprise I noticed that all words were converted to lower case, which is quite unpractical for German. I can see that during the calculation step, internally all words are converted to lower case. But why doesn't Anchovy give you the option to keep the initial upper case for German words?
