Installation Package History

Current version of TransTools installation package: 3.14.1. Click here to download the recent version.

Version Date Details
3.14.1 07/03/2017
  • TransTools for AutoCAD:

    The translation table is now generated differently.

    Translation table in Microsoft Word format:
    • A paragraph break / carriage return is always represented as a paragraph break (Word paragraph break). \P tag is no longer used.
    • A line break is represented as a line break / soft return (Word line break).

    Translation table in Microsoft Excel format:
    • A paragraph break / carriage return is always represented as a line break (Ctrl+Enter in Excel). \P tag is no longer used.
    • A line break is represented as <br/> sequence.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for AutoCAD ver. 2.1.

3.14 26/02/2017
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Remove Highlight – added a new option – “Remove all colors except selected”. When this option is activated, the tool clears all highlights except highlights in the selected color.
    • Document Cleaner – several new features and improvements:
      1. Added a new Autoformat command called “Set Text Wrapping to None for all tables”. When this option is activated, the Text Wrapping of all tables is changed to None. This helps prevent table layout problems in some documents produced by OCR and PDF conversion tools.
      2. Added several extra cell alignment options for “Use consistent cell alignment for all tables” command (Autoformat tool).
      3. Fixed a bug in Tag Cleaner which caused text borders to be applied to all paragraph text or cleared.
      4. Made minor enhancements in “Editing – Correct formatting of numbered list markers (document)” command (Quick Actions tool). The command now copies all font attributes from the paragraph to the list marker.
      5. The last selected non-default profile can now be loaded whenever you re-open Document Cleaner (if the user confirms this).
    • Dual-Language Document Assistant – the last selected non-default profile can now be loaded whenever you re-open Dual-Language Document Assistant (if the user confirms this).

Thanks to Vladimir Sankov for his valuable suggestions.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.11.

3.13.2 21/02/2017
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Fixed a bug in Dual-Language Document Assistant: in some documents, not all paragraphs were duplicated if the Separator was set to Paragraph Break.
    • Fixed a bug in Multiple Replace: the tool no longer ignores the initial order of replacement items in which the Use Wildcards option is activated.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.10.1.

3.13.1 09/12/2016

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Excel ver. 3.2.9, TransTools for PowerPoint ver. 1.2.2.

3.13 29/10/2016
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Collect All Graphics From Document command has been updated significantly. The command now works reliably, extracting pictures / images and embedded objects from all parts of the Word document (and not only the document body as it did before). Each graphical object is preceded by its page number (if the displayed page number is different from the sequential page index, both are displayed). If the graphical object was extracted from a header or footer, “Header” or “Footer” is displayed instead of page number. A summary of graphical objects that were extracted or skipped by the command is included at the beginning of the generated document.
    • Previously, in most situations, Unbreaker inserted a space if it deleted a paragraph or line break between words, which is incorrect for CJK languages (except Korean). This is now fixed.
    • Added two macros that can be run in silent mode in order to clean tags from the active Word document:
      Trans_CleanTagsDefault cleans tags with default Tag Cleaner options (reset spacing and shading, remove hyphens, change black font color to automatic font color, convert character styles to direct formatting, remove unreferenced bookmarks).
      Trans_CleanTagsDefaultPlusNormalizeFontColor cleans tags with default Tag Cleaner options (reset spacing and shading, remove hyphens, change black font color to automatic font color, convert character styles to direct formatting, remove unreferenced bookmarks) and also normalize font color
      You can use these macros to automate tag cleaning using Application.Run method in Word.
  • TransTools for PowerPoint:
    • Previously, in most situations, Unbreaker inserted a space if it deleted a paragraph or line break between words, which is incorrect for CJK languages (except Korean). This is now fixed.
  • TransTools for Visio:
    • Text from some grouped objects (e.g., connectors from some stencils) was not extracted. This is now fixed.
    • Stencil documents (VSSX extension) were erroneously listed by Extract Translatable Text and Translate Using Translation Table tools in Visio 2013 and newer versions. This is now fixed.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.10, TransTools for PowerPoint ver. 1.2.1, TransTools for Visio ver. 2.0.2.

3.12.1 21/08/2016

Unbreaker (TransTools for Word) worked incorrectly in pure text files opened in Microsoft Word. This is now fixed.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.9.1.

3.12 06/08/2016
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Unbreaker: 1) Breaks between two footnotes or endnotes are now ignored; 2) Breaks between numbers are ignored.
    • Document Cleaner:
      1. If Remove empty paragraphs command is used, Autoformat tool also removes empty paragraphs at the very beginning of the document and at the end of table cells.
      2. By default, Autoformat tool now applies Yellow highlighting to textboxes if Clearly identify all textboxes command is used, and White fill color option was added to the list of possible textbox fill colors to make it easier to restore default fill color across all textboxes.
      3. Format all text in one text column command (Autoformat tool) now applies a single text column to all document sections in all cases.
    • Spellcheck Assistant: the user can now create a list of spelling errors for the entire document or the selected text (previously, it was only possible to do this for the entire document).
  • TransTools for PowerPoint: Unbreaker – breaks between numbers are now ignored.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.9, TransTools for PowerPoint ver. 1.2.

3.11.1 04/06/2016

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Visio ver. 2.0.1, TransTools for AutoCAD ver. 2.0.1, TransTools for Word ver. 2.8.7.

3.11 21/05/2016

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Visio ver. 2.0, TransTools for AutoCAD ver. 2.0, TransTools for Word ver. 2.8.6, TransTools for PowerPoint ver. 1.1.

3.10 20/03/2016
  • New features and bug fixes in TransTools for Word:
    • Unbreaker can now recognize potential breaks if the first paragraph is equal to “#” or “№”.
    • Bug fixes:
      • Unbreaker – a break before a paragraph starting with a bullet symbol was not recognized in some cases.
      • Segmented Text Coloring Tool did not work correctly under Word 2016.
      • Apply Internal / External Styles commands – previously these commands added all three possible styles (tw4winExternal, tw4winInternal and tw4winNone) to a document instead of only one style.
      • Fixed an issue with processing of textboxes on drawing canvases.
  • New features in TransTools for AutoCAD:
    • It is now possible to process text attributes on blocks attached to multileader (dimension) objects.
    • Extract Translatable Text now contains the following new features:
      • The source text is automatically duplicated in the translation column to simplify translation in CAT tools.
      • You can now automatically prepare the translation table for translation inside a CAT tool. You can choose from a variety of common CAT tools. Depending on the CAT tool, the translation table will be prepared differently, either using tw4winExternal and tw4winInternal styles, or using hidden font formatting to hide non-translatable text and formatting markers.
      • TransTools can now automatically save the generated translation table in the same folder and under the same filename as the processed drawing. To do this, use “Automatically save generated table in drawing's folder” option.
    • Translate Using Translation Table has several new features:
      • TransTools can now automatically replace certain characters or even substrings within the translation table before the translation is merged into the drawing. This helps avoid a common issue when certain characters like EN-dash (–) display as ? if the text is formatted with a font like “romans”. This can be achieved with “Change characters that are not supported in every font” option.
      • After the translations are merged into the drawing, TransTools allows you to see which drawing text was not found in the translation table. To do this, click [View Skipped Text] button at the bottom of the dialogue.

3.8 01/09/2015
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Added a new option to Unbreaker called “Let me join more paragraphs if they look like separate paragraphs”. When this option is used, Unbreaker is less strict when it decides whether a particular paragraph or line break should be included in the list of uncertain breaks to remove. Normally, you should use this option in documents converted from PDFs in order to discover additional breaks which need to be removed.
    • Added a new feature in Quotation Magic: you can now replace curly (directional) quotation marks with straight quotation marks (" and ') or use straight apostrophe ('). This can be useful if you prepare a document for the CAT tool in order to get better TM leverage.
    • Added new options in Find & Remove Excessive Spaces: you can now remove spaces before and after certain punctuation, e.g., remove an erroneous space before final punctuation (?!.) or after a parenthesis.
    • Added a new feature in Tag Cleaner (Document Cleaner) – if Thick Underline formatting is applied to bold text (which may occur with some PDF conversion tools), Tag Cleaner automatically changes it to Single Underline formatting to avoid unnecessary tags in your CAT tool.
    • Improvement in Unbreaker: the command can now process the entire document, including headers/footers and textboxes (previously, only the main document body could be processed, excluding headers/footers, textboxes, etc.).
    • Removed Entire Document / Selection options in Tag Cleaner. Tag Cleaner can now process the entire document only.
    • Fixed a bug in Document Format Converter: curly quotation marks were changed to straight quotation marks when a document was converted to TXT format.
    • Fixed a bug in Spellcheck Assistant: in certain situations, text was processed incorrectly when Selection option was used.
    • Fixed several bugs in Unbreaker and Automatic Localisation.
    • Introduced minor improvements in numerous commands.
    • Made slight changes to built-in Correctomatic lists.
    • Updated the About dialogue: it is now possible to check for a new version from the dialogue.
  • TransTools for Excel:
    • Fixed a bug in Find Excessive Spaces.
    • Updated the About dialogue: it is now possible to check for a new version from the dialogue.
  • TransTools for Visio:
    • Updated the About dialogue: it is now possible to check for a new version from the dialogue.
  • TransTools for AutoCAD:
    • Text in some drawings could not be processed because it contained Unicode escape sequences (for example, \U+0041 for letter ‘A’). This was fixed.
    • Previously, Extract Translatable Text command sorted text according to the position of the text on a layout, but the sorting was incorrect when text was extracted from several layouts or drawings. This was fixed.
    • Updated the About dialogue: it is now possible to check for a new version from the dialogue.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.8, TransTools for Excel ver. 3.2.8, TransTools for AutoCAD ver. 1.4.6 and TransTools for Visio ver. 1.2.3.

3.7 26/06/2015
  • Added a new tool – Spellcheck Assistant (TransTools for Word). This tool extends Microsoft Word's built-in spellchecking functionality. You can quickly look through all spellchecking errors in the document, add selected errors to one or several custom dictionaries, create special lists of spelling errors for external programs, assign a language to the entire document or parts of it, and do many other things.
  • Added a new option in Tag Cleaner command (Document Cleaner tool in TransTools for Word) – Normalize font color. This option applies the first font color used in a paragraph to other text in the same paragraph if the colors are similar. This helps to remove tags from documents which contain several different shades of black or other colors, which happens in Word documents created by some PDF conversion programs.
  • Tag Cleaner command (Document Cleaner tool in TransTools for Word) now displays a notification if additional tags can be cleaned by activating other tag cleaning options. If you see this notification, you can check the specified options and press Clean Tags button again to remove more tags from the document.
  • Fixed a bug in Table Aligner command (Document Cleaner in TransTools for Word) which caused borders in some tables to be aligned incorrectly.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.7.

3.6.2 19/04/2015
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Document Format Convertor: added ability to convert documents to TXT format (using Unicode or UTF-8 encoding). This may be useful if you use text files for alignment, etc.
    • Unbreaker:
      1. Renamed the Automatic Correction tab to “Automatic Correction / Highlighting” and added an ability to highlight certain breaks (previously, only uncertain breaks could be highlighted). This allows you to highlight both certain and uncertain incorrect breaks in the document for manual correction.
      2. Fixed a small bug – in certain situations, a break between two textual list items was considered incorrect.
      3. Improved the tool's behaviour in Armenian and East Asian languages.
    • Document Cleaner:
      1. Added new options for the Autoformat command: 1) Apply transparent background to all tables (to reset the background color and pattern for all tables in the document), 2) Use consistent cell alignment for all tables (to change text alignment in all table cells to a specific value), 3) Apply consistent borders to all tables, 4) Remove text shading (to clear font and paragraph shading from all text in the document), 5) Set default text spacing (to set default spacing, scale, position and kerning) for all document text, 6) Remove soft (manual) hyphens.
      2. All table options in the Autoformat command can now process nested tables.
      3. Under Quick Actions, added a new command: Correct formatting of numbered list markers. Very often OCR tools apply different formatting to the markers of numbered lists and to the list items themselves. This command applies the list item formatting to the list item markers.
      4. Under Quick Actions, added a new command: Autofit all textboxes. This command goes through all textboxes in the document and changes their settings so that they expand or shrink to fit the text.
      5. Under Quick Actions, added a new command: Reset all paragraph and font formatting. This command formats the selected text, resetting paragraph indentation and spacing as well as font formatting.
    • Hide / Unhide Text: fixed a bug which prevented hiding of text in textboxes located in headers or footers.
    • Find & Replace Excessive Spaces: fixed a bug which could cause damage to fields when field text and adjacent text contained excessive spaces.
    • Localisation commands: highlight colors are now used to optionally mark changed text.
    • Insert Symbol: changed fonts for the quotation marks buttons.
  • TransTools for Excel:
    • Fixed a bug in Glossary Search which caused problems if glossaries contained entries with accented letters.
    • Added a new option in Cell Resize Wizard: if Resize All Cells option is used, you can now choose “Fill: None” option to avoid changing the background color of resized cells.
  • TransTools for AutoCAD:
    • Added a new option in Extract Translatable Text command: “Export all text for calculating statistics”. This option is useful if you need to export all text, including repetitions, in order to calculate the amount of translatable text to charge your clients. Note that this new option does not affect the behavior of Translate Using Translation Table command: just as before, it will translate all repetitions of the same phrase in the same way, using the first occurrence of the repeating entry from the translation table.
    • The translation commands can now extract and translate attribute objects in layouts, which may be encountered if a block containing attributes is exploded.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.6.2, TransTools for Excel ver. 3.2.7, TransTools for AutoCAD ver. 1.4.5.

3.6.1 01/04/2015
  • Small bug fix in the recently added Correctomatic (TransTools for Word).
  • Updated Multiple Replace tool (TransTools for Word): a prompt to temporarily deactivate Track Changes is now shown if the user attempts to make wildcard replacements that use backreferences in the Replace With parameter if Track Changes are activated (a known Word bug causes incorrect replacements in this situation).

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.6.1.

3.6 29/03/2015
  • Added a new tool – Correctomatic (TransTools for Word). This tool checks documents for words/phrases defined in your correction lists and allows you to correct them. It is a proofreader's Swiss Army knife: it can check and enforce consistency with a style guide, apply a specific language variant (e.g., American or British English) across a document, find potential errors that are difficult to detect with a spellchecker, enforce a specific preferential spelling of a word, find potential translation errors, etc.
  • Updated some commands in Document Cleaner (TransTools for Word) to avoid potential crashing on some computers.
  • Updated Unbreaker (TransTools for Word) to detect potentially incorrect breaks between lines with different paragraph alignment inside table cells and incorrect breaks between upper-case lines.
  • Updated Multiple Replace tool (TransTools for Word): added an ability to apply specific formatting (bold, italic, underlined, subscript and superscript) to replacements and fixed several bugs related to spaces in replacement list entries and to the order of replacements.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.6.

3.5 08/02/2015
  • Added a new tool – What Is This Text Symbol? (TransTools for Word). This command analyses text you select in Microsoft Word and identifies every text symbol it contains. The command should be useful in a variety of situations, e.g., when you see unknown or confusing symbols in your CAT tool and want to decide whether to delete them or keep them in the translation.
  • Updated Document Cleaner / Autoformat tool (TransTools for Word): the first option was renamed to “Highlight paragraphs formatted using several different fonts, font sizes or font colors”. In this version, in addition to highlighting paragraphs formatted with different fonts or font sizes, this option also highlights paragraphs formatted with different font colors. This should be useful for processing of documents obtained through OCR and PDF conversion programs because these programs may apply similar colors to different words or characters in the text, resulting in excessive tags in your CAT tool. After you use this option, it is easy to find paragraphs that use several font colors and format them appropriately.
  • Added two new Quick Actions commands under Document Cleaner / Other Tools (TransTools for Word):
    1. Textboxes - Move text out of all textboxes (entire document) – this command converts all floating textboxes to text, placing the text at the place to which each textbox was anchored and deleting original textboxes. It should be really useful if you use a PDF conversion service which places text in textboxes. Documents with textboxes are really difficult to translate and format, and copying and pasting text out of textboxes can be really frustrating. This command performs the operation very quickly, highlighting the moved text so you can format it further.
    2. Textboxes - Convert all textboxes to frames – this command converts all floating textboxes to Word frames. Frames are somewhat easier to work with than textboxes, but they are still problematic in terms of translation and further formatting.
      Thanks to Marek Pawelec for suggesting these improvements.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.5.

3.4.2 17/01/2015
  • Unbreaker (TransTools for Word): added a new option to allow removal of incorrect paragraph breaks between a list item and the following paragraph. This is particularly useful for documents produced by OCR and PDF conversion tools because they sometimes insert incorrect breaks in the middle of list paragraphs.
  • Multiple Replace tool (TransTools for Word): previously, it was impossible to replace with an empty string. This was fixed.
  • Dual Language Document Assistant (TransTools for Word): fixed a bug which caused incorrect behaviour if Convert to Dual-Language Text command was used on text followed by a section or page break.
  • Document Cleaner (TransTools for Word): text highlight colors were removed with Tag Cleaner if ‘Change Font Color from Black to Automatic’ option was activated. This is now fixed.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.4.2.

3.4.1 18/11/2014
  • Changes in Multiple Replace tool (TransTools for Word):
    • If a named replacement list is selected, all changes made to the replacement list are now saved automatically (in previous version, it was necessary to Load and Save replacement lists manually to make changes to them).
    • If a New replacement list is selected, the user is prompted to save the replacement list before the dialogue is closed or Replace All button is pressed.
    • If the search text of one entry matches some text inside the replacement text of another entry, unwanted replacements could occur (e.g., if we replace ‘categoris’ with ‘categories’ and then replace ‘cat’ with ‘dog’, we could end up with ‘dogegories’. This is now prevented.
  • Line Removal tool (Document Cleaner, TransTools for Word) can now identify vertical and horizontal lines in Word documents produced by Adobe ExportPDF service.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.4.1.

3.4 30/10/2014
  • Significant improvements in Multiple Replace tool (TransTools for Word):
    • Replacement list editing features are much more user-friendly.
    • You can now save replacement lists under different names for re-use later. Using this feature, you can create lists of replacement rules customized for different tasks, language pairs, subjects, clients, etc.
    • You can specify several different search/replace options for each replacement rule: Case-sensitive comparison, Match full words only, Use Wildcards.
    • You can specify a highlight color to be used to highlight replacements.
  • The Ribbon user interface has been slightly changed, adding Multiple Replace and Document Format Converter (TransTools for Word) on the main ribbon.
  • Minor improvement in Quick Workspaces tool (TransTools for Word).
  • Fixed several bugs in Non-breaking Space Checker (TransTools for Word) related to documents with tracked changes (revisions).

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.4.

3.2 31/08/2014
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Added a new tool – Document Format Converter. Document Format Converter makes it easy to convert many Word documents to one of the following formats: DOCX, PDF, RTF and DOC.
      Many thanks to Michael Beijer for the idea.
    • Several changes to Dual-Language Document Assistant: new parameter to control which side (left side or right side) will be reserved for translation; automatic numbered lists are now used on the translation side only; progress indication.
      Thanks to Vladimir Sankov for useful suggestions regarding Dual-Language Document Assistant.
    • Hide/Unhide Text command: improved the user interface to avoid confusion between Highlight Color and Font Color options.
  • TransTools Utilities:
    • Insert Symbol command failed to insert a symbol under some circumstances. This is fixed.

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.2, TransTools Utilities 1.2.2.

3.1.1 04/08/2014
  • TransTools for Word:
    • Slight interface change in Non-breaking Space Checker: the language selection list was placed at the top of the dialogue.
    • Fixed a bug in Remove Highlight command: previously, the command removed highlighting from the entire document if the Selection option was checked.
    • Added progress indication to Bookmark Cleanup in Document Cleaner.
    • Fixed 2 bugs in Dual-Language Document Assistant: 1) when text was converted to a dual-language table, there was an error if the selected text was preceded by a table; 2) when text was converted to dual-language text, there was an error if the last paragraph in a text box was selected.
    • Fixed bugs in Hide/Unhide Text command: if the Marching Red Ants (Wordfast Classic) or Double Strikethrough (Wordfast Classic) options were used, the command did not remove all such formatting when Unhide Everything option was used.
  • TransTools for Excel:
  • TransTools for Visio:
    • Renamed the Translation commands. The new names are Extract Translatable Text (to extract text from shapes on a drawing) and Translate Using Translation Table (to replace original text with the new text from the translation table). Made some changes in wording to reflect the new terminology (“translation table” is now used instead of “replacement list”).
  • TransTools for AutoCAD:
    • Renamed the Translation commands. The new names are Extract Translatable Text (to extract text from text blocks on drawing) and Translate Using Translation Table (to replace original text with the new text from the translation table). Made some changes in wording to reflect the new terminology (“translation table” is now used instead of “replacement list”).

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.1.1, TransTools for Excel ver. 3.2.6, TransTools for AutoCAD ver. 1.4.4, TransTools for Visio 1.2.2.

3.1 29/06/2014
  • Added a new tool – Segmented Text Coloring Tool (TransTools for Word). This tool is designed for Wordfast Classic and SDL Trados 2007 users as well as those who need to proofread or translate segmented documents in Trados Tag-delimited DOC format. It re-formats (re-colors) a document so that you can quickly distinguish source text from target text and clearly see which segments require more attention depending on their match percentage.
    Many thanks to Roger Chadel for the idea and help in designing this tool.
  • Added a new option to Unbreaker tool (TransTools for Word): treat a break before a capitalized word as an uncertain break. If checked, this option marks breaks before capitalized words with a question mark, which is useful in many languages where capitalized words normally occur at the beginning of sentences.
  • Improved the incorrect break search algorithms in Unbreaker.
  • Made a minor user interface change in TransTools Utilities (text was not fully visible under Windows 8).

Updated add-in versions: TransTools for Word ver. 2.1, TransTools Utilities ver. 1.2.1.

3.0 22/05/2014
  • Added a new tool – Unbreaker (TransTools for Word). This tool makes it very easy to remove incorrect paragraph and line breaks from Word documents, preventing segmentation issues in CAT tools and improving the professional look of Word documents. You can quickly reformat documents that contain occasional incorrect breaks, text copied from PDF documents or web pages, regular text files opened in Word, etc. This tool is part of TransTools Professional Edition.
  • Added a new tool – Quotation Magic (TransTools for Word). This tool checks whether all quotation marks, apostrophes and similar symbols (e.g., prime, double prime) are in accordance with the document’s language, and performs corrections if necessary. Fix such common problems as straight quotation marks instead of directional quotation marks, incorrect apostrophe symbols, incorrect spacing around quotation marks, missing opening or closing quotation marks, etc. This tool is part of TransTools Professional Edition.
  • Updated the menu and ribbon structure in TransTools for Word and TransTools for Excel. In Office 2007 and more recent versions of Microsoft Office, TransTools now has a separate tab on the ribbon.
