Compact glossary layout updated

As announced previously, an alternative glossary pane layout was made available as a plugin. The newest update (v.1.1.0) now includes 4 variants of that compact layout:

  • 1A
    • source: target [comment] | target [comment] | [comment] (separator | is styled as normal text — the same as in the original version)
  • 1B
    • source: target [comment] | target [comment] | [comment] (separator | is styled as target terms)
  • 2A
    • source: target (comment), target (comment), (comment) (separator , is styled as normal text)
  • 2B
    • source: target (comment), target (comment), (comment) (separator , is styled as target terms)

Once again, here’s the project itself, and here is where you can download the compiled version. If you run OmegaT on Java8, make sure to download the right build. On Java11 it doesn’t matter which build is used.

Comments, bug reports, complains, latest gossips and donations are always welcome.

Take care and good luck!

Clickable links in OmegaT# notes and comments

Here’s a GitHub project for an OmegaT plugin that converts URL’s in notes and comments into clickable items that open the URL’s in the default browser. Pretty neat, especially when you’re working in a team project and need to insert references for the editor or another translator.

Clickable links example

In order to install the plugin one needs to create a folder named LinkBuilder (or whatever sounds good and preferably makes sense) inside plugins subfolder either in the OmegaT installation folder, or in OmegaT settings folder, download the latest release, and unzip it into the newly created LinkBuilder folder. The plugin will be activated upon OmegaT restart (or in a new OmegaT instance).

I don’t know who the author of the plugin is (other than his username at GitHub is hiohiohio), but kudos anyway!!!
