TransTools v.3.5 has been released.

Translator Tools / Resizing cells in Excel - the challenge and the solution

Those of you who translate Excel spreadsheets regularly must have encountered the following issue. When you translate a cell and go to another cell, the cell is not resized automatically to fit the new contents. You need to resize the row manually. This is quite easy to do if you translate a spreadsheet manually, but more and more translators use computer-assisted translation (CAT) software (also called TEnT, translation environment tools), e.g. SDL Trados, memoQ, DejaVu X, Wordfast Pro, etc where you have no control of the document layout until the target document is generated. Luckily, TransTools for Excel contains a command called Cell Resize Wizard (http://www.translatortools.net/excel-resizewizard.html) that helps you out. For more information on this and updates about recent Translator Tools developments, go to http://www.translatortools.net/news/features_v1.9.1.html

New features in TransTools 3.9: New TransTools for PowerPoint plug-in with Tag Cleaner, Unbreaker and Change Language tools | Translator Tools | Scoop.it
