Information about OmegaT The most current info about OmegaT can be found at http://www.omegat.org/ User support, at the Yahoo user group (multilingual), where the archives are searchable without subscription: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/OmegaT/ Requests for Enhancements (in English), at the SourceForge site: https://sourceforge.net/p/omegat/feature-requests/ Bug reports (in English), at the SourceForge site: https://sourceforge.net/p/omegat/bugs/ ============================================================================== 2. What is OmegaT? OmegaT is a computer-assisted translation (CAT) tool. It is free, that is you don't have to pay anything to be able to use it, even for professional use, and you are free to modify it and/or re-distribute it as long as you respect the user license. OmegaT's main features are: - ability to run on any operating system supporting Java - use of any valid TMX file as a translation reference - flexible sentence segmenting (using an SRX-like method) - searches in the project and the reference translation memories - searches of files in supported formats in any folder - fuzzy matching - smart handling of projects including complex folder hierarchies - support for glossaries (terminology checks) - support for OpenSource on-the-fly spell checkers - support for StarDict dictionaries - support for the Google Translate machine translation services - clear and comprehensive documentation and tutorial - localization in a number of languages. OmegaT supports the following file formats out of the box: - Plain text file formats - ASCII text (.txt, etc.) - Encoded text (*.UTF8) - Java resource bundles (*.properties) - PO files (*.po) - INI (key=value) files (*.ini) - DTD files (*.DTD) - DocuWiki files (*.txt) - SubRip title files (*.srt) - Magento CE Locale CSV (*.csv) - Tagged text file formats - OpenOffice.org / OpenDocument (*.odt, *.ott, *.ods, *.ots, *.odp, *.otp) - Microsoft Open XML (*.docx, *.xlsx, *.pptx) - (X)HTML (*.html, *.xhtml,*.xht) - HTML Help Compiler (*.hhc, *.hhk) - DocBook (*.xml) - monolingual XLIFF (*.xlf, *.xliff, *.sdlxliff) - QuarkXPress CopyFlowGold (*.tag, *.xtg) - ResX files (*.resx) - Android resource (*.xml) - LaTex (*.tex, *.latex) - Help (*.xml) and Manual (*.hmxp) files - Typo3 LocManager (*.xml) - WiX Localization (*.wxl) - Iceni Infix (*.xml) - Flash XML export (*.xml) - Wordfast TXML (*.txml) - Camtasia for Windows (*.camproj) - Visio (*.vxd) OmegaT can be customized to support other file formats as well. OmegaT will automatically parse even the most complex source folder hierarchies, to access all the supported files, and produce a target folder with exactly the same structure, including copies of any non-supported files. For a quick-start tutorial, launch OmegaT and read the displayed Instant Start Tutorial. The user manual is in the package you just downloaded, you can access it from the [Help] menu after starting OmegaT. ============================================================================== 3. Installing OmegaT 3.1 General In order to run, OmegaT requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.5 or higher to be installed on your system. OmegaT packages which include the Java Runtime Environment are now available to save users the trouble of selecting, obtaining and installing it. If you have already Java, one way to install the current version of OmegaT is to use Java Web Start. For this purpose download the following file and then execute it: http://omegat.sourceforge.net/webstart/OmegaT.jnlp It will install the correct environment for your computer and the application itself on the first run. Later calls do not need to be online. During the installation, depending on your operating system, you may receive several security warnings. The certificate is by "PnS Concept". The permissions you give to this version (which might be mentioned as an "unrestricted access to the computer") are identical to permissions you give to the local version, as installed by a procedure, described later: they allow an access to the hard drive of the computer. Subsequent clicks on OmegaT.jnlp will check for any upgrades, if you are online, install them if there are any, and then start OmegaT. The alternative ways and means of dowloading and installing OmegaT are shown below. Windows and Linux users: if you are confident that your system already has a suitable version of the JRE installed, you can install the version of OmegaT without the JRE (this is indicated in the name of the version,"Without_JRE"). If you are in any doubt, we recommend that you use the version supplied with JRE. This is safe, since even if the JRE is already installed on your system, this version will not interfere with it. Linux users: OmegaT will run on the open-implementation source Java packaged with many Linux distributions (for example, Ubuntu), but you may experience bugs, display problems or missing features. We therefore recommend that you download and install either the Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or the OmegaT package bundled with JRE (the .tar.bz2) bundle marked "Linux"). If you install a version of Java at system level, you must either ensure that it is in your launch path, or call it explicitly when launching OmegaT. If you are not very familiar with Linux, we therefore recommend that you install an OmegaT version with JRE included. This is safe, since this "local" JRE will not interfere with any other JRE installed on your system. Mac users: The JRE is already installed on Mac OS X before Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion). Lion users will be prompted by the system when they first launch an application that requires Java and the system will eventually automatically download and install it. Linux on PowerPC systems: Users will need to download IBM's JRE, as Sun does not provide a JRE for PPC systems. Download in this case from: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/linux/download.html 3.2 Installation * Windows users: Simply launch the installation program. If you wish, the installation program can create shortcuts to launch OmegaT. * Linux users: Place the archive in any suitable folder and unpack it; OmegaT is then ready to be launched. You can however obtain a neater and more user-friendly installation by using the installation script (linux-install.sh). To use this script, open a terminal window (console), change folder to the folder containing OmegaT.jar and the linux-install.sh script, and execute the script with ./linux-install.sh. * Mac users: Copy the OmegaT.zip archive to a suitable location and unpack it there to obtain a folder that contains an HTML documentation index file and OmegaT.app, the application file. * Others (e.g., Solaris, FreeBSD: To install OmegaT, simply create a suitable folder for OmegaT. Copy the OmegaT zip or tar.bz2 archive to this folder and unpack it there. 3.3 Launching OmegaT Launch OmegaT as follows. * Windows users: If, during installation, you have created a shortcut on the desktop, double-click on that shortcut. Alternatively, double-click on the file OmegaT.exe. If you can see the file OmegaT but not OmegaT.exe in your File Manager (Windows Explorer), change the settings so that file extensions are displayed. * Linux users: If you used the installation script supplied, you should be able to launch OmegaT with: Alt+F2 and then: omegat * Mac users: Double-click on the file OmegaT.app. * From your file manager (all systems): Double-click on the file OmegaT.jar. This will work only if the .jar file type is associated with Java on your system. * From the command line (all systems): The command to launch OmegaT is: cd <folder where the file OmegaT.jar is located> <name and path of the Java executable file> -jar OmegaT.jar (The Java executable file is the file java on Linux and java.exe on Windows. If Java is installed at system level and is in the command path, the full path need not be entered.) Customizing your OmegaT launch experience: * Windows users: The install program can create shortcuts for you in the start menu, on the desktop and in the quick launch area. You can also manually drag the file OmegaT.exe to the start menu, the desktop or the quick launch area to link it from there. * Linux users: For a more user-friendly way of launching OmegaT, you can use the Kaptain script provided (omegat.kaptn). To use this script you must first install Kaptain. You can then launch the Kaptain launch script with Alt+F2 omegat.kaptn For more information on the Kaptain script and on adding menu items and launch icons on Linux, refer to the OmegaT on Linux HowTo. Mac users: Drag OmegaT.app to your dock or to the tool bar of a Finder window to be able to launch it from any location. You can also call it in the Spotlight search field. ============================================================================== 4.

Is OmegaT bugging you? Do you need help? Before reporting a bug, make sure that you have thoroughly checked the documentation. What you see may instead be a characteristic of OmegaT that you have just discovered. If you check the OmegaT log and you see words like "Error", "Warning", "Exception", or "died unexpectedly" then you have probably discovered a genuine problem (the log.txt is located in the user preferences folder, see the manual for its location). The next thing to do is to confirm what you found with other users, to make sure this has not already been reported. You can verify the bug report page at SourceForge too. Only when you are sure you are the first to have found some reproducible sequence of event that triggered something not supposed to happen should you file a bug report. Every good bug report needs exactly three things. - Steps to reproduce, - What you expected to see, and - What you saw instead. You can add copies of files, portions of the log, screen shots, anything that you think will help the developers with finding and fixing your bug. To browse the archives of the user group, go to: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/OmegaT/ To browse the bug report page and file a new bug report if necessary, go to: https://sourceforge.net/p/omegat/bugs/ To keep track of what is happening to your bug report you may want to register as a Source Forge user. ============================================================================== 6.
