OmegaT Version 3.0.0 Released

OmegaT latest version 3.0.0 was released. It requires Java version 6 or later, while the standard version 2.6.3 requires Java version 5 or later.

The license was also changed. While OmegaT was previously released under the GPLv2 license, OmegaT 3 is released under the GPLv3 license: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.en.html

OmegaT is a free and open source Computer Assisted Translation tool for language service providers and translators. It features fuzzy matching, translation memory, keyword search, glossaries, and translation leveraging into updated projects.

And in April 25, 2013 OmegaT latest version 3.0.0 was released.

Compared with 2.6.3, 3.0.0 brings 27 enhancements and five bug corrections.

Thanks to the new license, OmegaT 3 integrates directly tokenizers (with automatic detection of the tokenizers needed, no launching parameters are needed anymore) and LanguageTool, which were previously only available as plugins. This means also that these two features are now available in the Java WebStart version.

To use OmegaT 3, the Tokenizer and LanguageTool plugins should be removed from the plugin filter.

Three important areas of OmegaT were improved.

Better tag handling

Tags are now protected against edition (this behaviour is switchable). In addition, OmegaT now respects protected text (which cannot normally be edited) in the XLIFF filter.

Tags are handled like words, which means selecting them and moving around them is easier.

New options allow inserting the missing tags in a given segment. The Validate Tag window has a more explicit display, can fix tag errors automatically and can be triggered after each segment. Creating Translated Documents can be forbidden if tags are damaged or missing.

For OmegaT XML filters, a tooltip displays the full content of a tag when hovering over it with the mouse.

Better leveraging between XLIFF and TMX

To allow better leveraging between XLIFF and TMX, the way the XLIFF filter computes tags was changed completely. Tagged content should now give the same tag shortcuts in an XLIFF or in a TMX file. As the XLIFF filter was changed significantly, a “2.6 compatibility” option was added in the XLIFF filter, to allow using the new version without having to validate tags again in existing translations.

In addition, a number of global options in File Filters allow to get better leveraging: it is now possible to remove or not leading and trailing tags, to remove or not leading and trailing spaces in non-segmented projects (useful for pre-segmented content) and to preserve spaces for all tags. These options apply to the OmegaT XML and HTML filters.

New search options

It is now possible to search into memory, translation memory and glossaries separately or together, and to search only translated segments.

OmegaT now has a machine translation connector for MyMemory.

The list of last changes can now be read directly in OmegaT, from the menu Help > Last Changes.

The Basque, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Turkish localisations were updated to 3.0.0.
