TransTools+ – Version history

Current version: 2.4 (download)

Description Version Release Date
  • Important: Fixed a critical issue which could prevent some panel-based tools from operating in the latest version of Office 365 due to Office Version 2406 June 18 update (Build 17726.20090).
  • Several updates were made to Multiple Find & Replace, Hide/Unhide Text and Highlighting Tool:
    1. You can now change the settings of many search expressions at once by selecting multiple items and clicking the Batch-edit Parameters button. This way you can modify such settings as Type (text/regular expression), Match Case, Use Wildcards, Find Whole Words Only, Find Formatting, Replacement Formatting and Replacement Highlight Color.
    2. When multiple search expressions are selected in the list, clicking the Edit button will display a warning to notify you that only the last selected item will be displayed in the Edit window. You can select “Do not show this message” option if you don't want to see this notification in the future.
    3. Several UI improvements have been made: Find Whole Words setting is now disabled when the Find What field contains non-aphanumeric characters (spaces, punctuation, math symbols, etc.), Match Case and Find Whole Words settings become disabled when Use Wildcards setting is applied, the Edit Item window is now resizable, tab characters are automatically removed from the Find What text if inserted via the clipboard, and other minor improvements.
  • Hide/Unhide Text: When the tool was used from the Document Processing Tool, the Do Not Clear Existing Hidden Formatting setting was ignored. This is now fixed.
  • Author Anonymizer: When a document being processed is located inside the OneDrive folder, a warning is now displayed, telling the user that the document needs to be copied to a different location before processing. This affects users of Office 365 since the location of files located inside the OneDrive folder starts with "https://d.docs.live.net/". If you see this warning, follow the instructions to copy the affected files to a different location and re-select them from this location before repeating the operation.
  • DTP Tools: User-defined (standard) formatting commands now set the font differently in order to avoid issues in some languages.
  • Fixed an issue in the license activation process when the registration name contained certain characters.
  • Several UI improvements in various tools.

Using this tool, you can quickly replace names of one or several authors, e.g. translators or editors, in multiple documents so that your customer sees ‘Translator’, ‘Editor’ or a custom author name of your choosing.
  • Highlighting Tool: if a document does not contain locked areas but includes locked content controls, the tool could not clear highlighting, displaying an error message. This is now fixed.
  • Hide/Unhide Text: if a document does not contain locked areas but includes locked content controls, the tool could not complete the Unhide Everything operation. This is now fixed.
  • Document Processing Tool’s window is now resizable and the window size is saved between sessions.

This version of TransTools Migration Utility supports new settings added to TransTools; there is no need to upgrade unless you are using both TransTools+ and TransTools. 2.2.1 December 27, 2023
TransTools Migration Utility was included in TransTools+ installation package. TransTools Migration Utility helps you transfer settings and configuration files of TransTools / TransTools+ between computers or user profiles, providing a quick and easy way to recover from computer failures, back up tool configuration, migrate settings to another computer, share settings between colleagues, etc. 2.2 December 22, 2023
  • Hide/Unhide Text tool now includes the ability to hide text located in tables. The new Tables option can be found by selecting “Hide Text Based On Its Location” option under Hiding Options. Using this option, you can specify which columns and rows need to be marked as hidden or non-hidden using a variety of settings. For example, you can specify that all cells except the header cell in a column named “Translation” must be marked as non-hidden while the rest of the document text should be marked as hidden. This greatly speeds up translation of Word documents containing localization tables.
  • Various fixes and improvements in Pre-flight Checker tool:
    • Bug fix: if the Clear Highlighting operation is added to the list of operations for correcting the document, this operation is now always executed before other operations to avoid clearing highlight colors applied by other operations.
    • Bug fix: if Highlight In Color operation for Hidden Text is added to the list of operations for correcting the document, this operation is now always executed before highlight colors are applied to other issues in order to make sure that these color highlights are visible.
    • Bug fix: the order of checks was not copied to a new profile when the profile was duplicated. This is now fixed.
    • Fix: improved the algorithm for normalizing formatting variations for Paragraphs Having Font, Font Size and Font Color Variations in order to minimize CAT tool tags in additional scenarios.
    • Improvement: under Paragraphs Having Font, Font Size and Font Color Variations, preview tooltips used to display information about font, font size and font color of each part of paragraph text. For clarity, only the types of formatting that have variations are now displayed. For example, if only font size differs across a paragraph while font and font color are uniform, only font size information will be displayed.
    • Usability improvement: if Selection scope is chosen by the user in order to check selected text only, and color highlighting, hidden text or optional hyphens are detected, the tool will now warn the user when correcting the document if the originally checked document selection is different from the document selection during the final correction operation.
  • Fixed a minor UI issue in Document Processing Tool.
  • Hide/Unhide Text tool: updated user interface text of hiding options for clarity.
  • Minor usability fix in Hide/Unhide Text, Highlighting Tool and Multiple Find & Replace tool.

2.0.1 June 15, 2023
  • Added a new tool - Pre-flight Checker. This tool checks a Word document for various formatting issues prior to translation in a CAT tool, delivery to the customer, or in other scenarios, and allows you to correct these issues if needed. This initial version integrates the following checks: 1) tab characters between words (which may used instead of spaces by mistake or to format tabular text), 2) zero-width spaces and zero-width non-joiners which cause issues in CAT tools, 3) hidden text (to avoid a situation when a document containing previously hidden text is sent to a customer), 4) text with color highlighting (to avoid a situation when color highlighting was used for a special purpose but was not cleared before sending to the customer), 5) manual hyphens (these can pose issues in some CAT tools), 6) paragraphs having font, font size or font color variations (these often indicate formatting problems or cause extra tags), 7) false tables of contents, 8) excessive spaces (which reduce TM leverage in CAT tools and reduce style guide compliance), 9) partly invisible text inside table cells. Additional checks will be added soon. The tool comes with built-in profiles that are configured for two typical scenarios - checking a document before importing it into a CAT tool and checking a document before delivering it to your customer - and allows you to create your own profiles of custom checks.
