What is OmegaT?
OmegaT is a free and open source multiplatform Computer Assisted Translation tool with fuzzy matching, translation memory, keyword search, glossaries, and translation leveraging into updated projects.
OmegaT's features are:
Download OmegaT_3.5.4_Without_JRE.zip (87,8Mb). Create a folder (directory) "OmegaT". Unzip the zipfile into the subdirectory. That's it. You can delete not used language files, Linux stuff etc.
The cmd file
The program works well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have a OmegaT.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin [drive: OmegaT] cd [drive: OmegaT]\OmegaT java -Duser.home=[drive: OmegaT]\OmegaT -jar OmegaT.jar %1 2>omegatbugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for OmegaT with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file with a name of your choice or use the file from the distribution. This file is copied to the "OmegaT" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs.
The first run will create a lot of errors in the "omegatbugs.txt" file. On second run these errors will not return. I think it has to do with the creation of the ".omegat" directory by the program with preference and some other files. Its seen with more programs. There are a few files specific for Windows, Linux or the Apple operating systems. These files are found in the "native" directory. The files are for "hunspell".
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and a OmegaT icon: omegat-ecs.zip.
