Welcome to the 45th edition of Translator Tools Newsletter. My best wishes to you and your families for the coming 2024. Let the next year bring all of you peace, health, prosperity, and happiness.
In this newsletter, I would like to introduce a new tool for TransTools+ and TransTools users called TransTools Migration Utility, as well as a new release of TransTools.
TransTools Migration Utility – back up and restore TransTools+ and TransTools configuration settings
As a user of TransTools+ or TransTools, you may need to restore the configuration settings of these programs on the same or different computer – in order to transfer your settings to a colleague, restore your set-up after a computer upgrade or system failure, etc. The new TransTools Migration Utility is a free standalone program designed to back up and restore TransTools+/TransTools settings and configuration files quickly and easily.
Selecting the required operation on the main screen of TransTools Migration Utility
TransTools Migration Utility is very easy to use: select whether you want to create a migration pack (i.e. back up TransTools+/TransTools settings and configuration files) or restore from a migration pack, select the location of the migration pack you would like to create or restore from, and select the tools whose settings you want to back up or restore. When you create a migration pack, TransTools Migration Utility creates a single ZIP file containing all the settings and configuration files for TransTools+/TransTools tools you selected, and this file is all that is needed in order to restore TransTools+/TransTools settings.
One useful feature of TransTools Migration Utility is backing up and restoring the settings of specific TransTools+/TransTools tools rather than all the existing tools, which can be handy in a number of scenarios.
