Imagine a super translator  …able to leap tall buildings with a single bound. What qualities would this person have?  First of all, they would be fluent in both the Biblical source language and in the target language.  That way they would be able to understand the source text perfectly, and would also be able to find the best way to render it in the target language.  Then, they would probably have a perfect memory, so that they would be consistent in their expressions and terminology throughout... read more

If a SILK file becomes corrupted, or if the computer crashes, it has been possible to lose a lot (or all) of the data. SILKin 2.4 creates back-up copies of SILK files every time the User saves their file. It also makes interim back-ups during a work session at intervals selected by the User. If anything goes wrong while saving or opening a SILK file, SILKin automatically reverts to the most recent back-up copy.

SILKin 2.2 has been “Internationalized.” All the text that appears on screen or in menus can be displayed in French or English. Users may select their preferred language from the Menu bar. If a third language option is desired, all that is needed is translation of (voluminous) text files into the new language.

In Paratext 9, you can have multiple text collections open at the same time.  Several users have contacted us to say that this is very useful, and they think we should tell people about this feature. For instance, a translator working in India might want to use one text collection for English translations and a second text collection for translations in Indian languages.  These two text collections can be used at the same time: Because text collections can be large, it is often helpful to put... read more

One XLingPaper user upgraded his Mac OS X to Catalina and discovered that the XMLmind XML Editor does not work with this new Mac OS. He could not navigate to open files, any linked/referenced files in a document were not found, and he could not produce a PDF, among other issues. So do not update to Catalina.
