CAFETRAN: UNTUK PROYEK-PROYEK PENERJEMAHAN PROFESIONAL


THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE IS IN BAHASA INDONESIA. IF YOU PREFER TO READ IT IN ENGLISH, PLEASE READ IT HERE.

“CafeTran (atau orang menyebutnya CT) adalah aplikasi CAT tool berbasis Java, yang dikemas dengan beragam fitur, tampilan yang menarik, dan mudah digunakan dengan mesin penerjemahan tingkat lanjut yang didukung sumber-sumber dan sistem penerjemahan online. CT memiliki beberapa fitur utama seperti mampu menangani banyak format file dan ia dapat berjalan di Windows, Mac, serta Linux.”

Belakangan, selama lebih dari dua minggu saya menguji CafeTran. Ia menawarkan masa uji coba selama 30 hari  dengan 30 segmen tiap sesi. Artinya, setiap setelah menerjemahkan 30 segmen, kita perlu me-restart aplikasi ini. Hal ini tidak mengapa bagi saya, walaupun beberapa saingan CT memberikan lebih banyak segmen yang dapat diterjemahkan dalam satu sesi uji coba maupun demo (beberapa CAT tool malah tidak membatasi jumlah segmen yang dapat kita terjemahkan, hanya membatasi jumlah hari untuk menggunakannya)

Fitur-fitur  Utama CT

Lintas platform. CT adalah CAT tool lintas platform profesional berbasis Java, yang dapat berjalan di Mac, Windows, dan Linux. Tentu ini memberi kita keuntungan. Sementara beberapa CAT tool profesional lainnya hanya berjalan di Windows, CT dapat berjalan baik di Linux dan Mac. Sehingga, jika tim kita memiliki komputer yang berbeda dengan sistem operasi yang juga berbeda, ini tidak akan menjadi masalah. Read the rest of this entry

Writing an article has never been easier before the era of auto-text software (some people call it as auto-complete or text expander software). But nowadays, people can write faster with auto-text applications which can reduce typing time.

HOW TO SOLVE MINESWEEPER GAME


This trick could be an old boring trick which you have read somewhere else. I posted this game “cheat” just for something not really important (read: just for fun).

Well, Minesweeper is an old Microsoft game. If I am not mistaken, the first time I saw it was several years ago when I saw the computers were still running Windows 98. I don’t know, maybe Minesweeper had been existing even before that version of Windows.

Minesweeper is a fun but frustrating game (for me). I have a very bad memory capability so I can’t solve Minesweeper even the easiest level! But now, I have an idea about how to win even the hardest level! How could?

First of all, just play the Minesweeper. Play your best, till you find the mines (the bombs). When you find the mines, you will get “lost notification” window. Don’t close it or make any confirmation (exit, restart, play again). Move the window somewhere else. You will see that Windows uncover the pattern. Capture it using “Print Screen SysRq” button on your keyboard. Paste it (Ctrl + V) into Ms. Word or any other text processors, and then crop the captured image until fit the Minesweeper window. You can use screen capture application too.

Look! All the mines are now uncovered. Now, open all covered squares securely!

Now you have the pattern. You can see which squares that are covering the mines. So from now on, you can count your steps to avoid the squares with mines. And after you have the pattern, it’s time to restart the game and follow the pattern. Remember, RESTART THIS GAME. Don’t EXIT or PLAY AGAIN. Because the pattern will change!

Another “fair” way to win this game is by understanding the pattern of numbers that appear. You can read it in Minesweeper’s help menu. Try it!
