TransTools: New features in version 3.0 - Unbreaker and Quotation Magic

TransTools: New features in version 3.0 - Unbreaker and Quotation Magic | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

TransTools v.3 includes two new powerful tools which should become indispensable for translation professionals.

 

1) Unbreaker ( http://www.translatortools.net/word-unbreaker.html ) 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.

 

2) Quotation Magic ( http://www.translatortools.net/word-quotationmagic.html ) checks whether all quotation marks, apostrophes and similar symbols are typographically correct and in accordance with desired quotation styles, and corrects them if necessary.

The author compared the available applications on the basis of the following criteria: 1) compatibility with MS Word and its tracked changes, 2) stability and an intuitive or familiar interface, and 3) access to cloud storage. Lesser priorities include a pleasant design, collaboration abilities, formatting options, and affordability. By extension, Pages can be used not only by copyeditors, but also by translators to edit bilingual documents (e.g., bilingual RTF and Trados tagged documents).
