#49 – New

 

Remade Machine Translator (MT) add-on:
Upcoming release of the newly remade version of the RC-WinTrans Machine Translator (MT) add-on. Enabled for use with RC-WinTrans 11.2.

The new MT add-on (Version 5.0) will be available in May 2018.

11.2.0.47

#48
Improvement

 

Source files removal:  Multiple source files can be selected in the Source Files dialog box and removed from a project all at once.

11.2.0.47

#47 – Fix

MIDDLE

TMX file import:  The (GUI) TMX import was always checking for matching IDs even when the option to do this was specifically disabled.

11.2.0.47

#46
Improvement

 

Selection of repetitions:  When using the menu command "Select" | "All (Repetitions Only Once)," a repetition is considered to be an instance where the source and target texts are 100% identical (previously it was only the source texts that had to be identical for an item to be considered a repetition).

11.2.0.47

#45 – Fix

LOW

Placeholder check (Win32):  The rules for the placeholder check for Win32 (RC) files have been updated so that the size prefix character "l" is no longer ignored.

Format example: "%.2lf"

11.2.0.47

#44 – Fix

LOW

Formatting in translated RC fles:  If an extended style was set for a dialog item, the line in the RC file was not finished with a line break at the end. This caused the following item's line to appear in the same line.

NOTE:  This is not a syntax error for the resource compiler. The translated RC file is valid.

File:  "RWTRConv.dll"

New file version:  9.0.0.1

11.1.2.37

#29 – Fix

LOW

Samples (Samples Page):  Sample files are now located in the "All User" | "Documents" folder.  Previously the sample was copied to the folder of the user that installed RC-WinTrans, rendering it unlocatable for other user accounts.
