About this blog

Translator's Shack is a collection of links, news, reviews and opinions about translation technologies. It's edited and updated by Roberto Savelli, an English to Italian translator, project manager and company owner of Albatros Soluzioni Linguistiche, a team of English-Italian translators, which hosts and supports this blog.

The Life as a PM category, managed by Gabriella Ascari, contains topics that are less technical in nature, but which we're sure will be appreciated by owners of small translation businesses and freelancers.

Here are links to my pages on some social networks:

Anaphraseus (open source CAT tool) Manual

A brief manual, including screenshots, has been posted for the open source CAT tool Anaphraseus. Here are some of Anaphraseus’ main features:

  • Text segmentation
  • Terminology recognition
  • Plain-text TM (Unicode UTF-16)
  • Fuzzy search in Translation Memory
  • Unicode UTF-16 TMX export/import
  • User glossary
  • OpenOffice.org extension

Update: the previous link does not work any longer. Apparently the domain has expired. A new version of the manual is being published on this page.

    The link for the manual is not a good one. Can someone post the correct link?

  • Roberto Savelli

    Hi John,
    thanks for your comment. The page I mentioned has indeed expired and is no longer available. I posted a new link above, but it looks like the manual is still under development.

    I am trying to get Anaphraseus 2.01b to work on Open Office 3.3. (Windows 7 Home).
    When trying to create the menu and toolbar I get the following message:

    BASIC syntax error.
    Expected: ,.

    and the menu doesn’t appear. In the macro window, OF setup, the first word “sFile” is highlighted in the line:
    if FileExists(sFile) Then Name sFile As sFile+”.bak”

    Any ideas how to solve this problem?

  • Roberto Savelli

    Hi Maromedbo, unfortunately I can’t help you about that problem. I suggest you try to contact the developer on this page:
