translationCore is free, and both the software and all its content are open-licensed. We pray that this software will help to check Bible translations and will result in the growth and strengthening of the Church.
The focus of v3.3.0 is to support access to pre-released content on Door43.
- Added the ability to update to pre-release resources and remove them from the application as well. #7343, #7363
- Users can now load Bibles by URL to the Scripture pane. #7375
- Translation Notes and Translation Words checks can be in the latest parascriptural format including reference ranges like 2:1,4. #7188, #7322
- The French locale and resources were updated. #7364
- Zero-width-spaces and no-break-spaces were causing problems with some of the checks, so now translationCore ignores them. #7333
- The parseq character wasn’t visible in the scripture pane, but it is now. #7286
- And more #7353, #7341.
- When doing a clean install and including the Git install on Windows, the user may only see a blank white screen for a few minutes while tC completes its first loading process which may take several minutes. Whether or not the blank screen is displayed, the user should end and then restart tC before using it. Follow this issue at #7115.
- After upgrading from older version of translationCore, sometimes have problem adding scripture panes in the translationNotes and translationWords tools (not all downloaded bibles are shown). The work around is to switch to wordAlignment tool and add scripture panes in that tool. Then when you switch back to translationNotes or translationWords tools you will also see the added scripture panes. Follow this issue at #7414
- The installation may include installing an update to the .Net framework. After the installation completes, a .Net install dialog may remain on the screen. If that happens just click Cancel.
- The installation of Git is part of the installation process. If Git 2.35.1 or greater is not already on the computer, ensure the checkbox for installing Git is checked on the installation dialog. At the end of the installation, if automatically starting tC, you may receive a message indicating that Git needs to be installed. If that message appears, just click the “Close translationCore” button, then restart tC (the app, not the installation). In tC 3.3.0, the restart of tC should be run twice.
- After installation, starting the application can take a long time (7+ minutes on some machines). Please be patient. Subsequent launches of tC will be faster, but may still take a few minutes.
It might take a few minutes to open tC the first time. Please be patient.
If you get a message about Git being required, you will need to open your terminal and run:
sudo xcode-select -s /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools
If this does not work, you can launch the app from the command line. Open the terminal and run:
There are two major ways you can help us improve translationCore:
- Leave user feedback - As you find bugs, nuisances, typos, or have other suggested improvements for tC, please use the user feedback to send us those suggestions! (Go to the Actions menu and click “User Feedback”.)
- App Localization - If you notice that some of the translated user interface can be improved or if you would like tC to be localized to a new language, you can help! We are using a crowd-sourced platform to localize translationCore. Localization text for tC is spread across three projects: translationCore translations in Crowdin, translationWords translations in Crowdin, translationNotes translations in Crowdin, and wordAlignment translations in Crowdin. To help, you must create a user profile, select the correct language, find the correct word or phrase that needs to be improved, and suggest a change! If you would like to start a new language, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll complete the initial setup for you. (Note: all changes will be incorporated in the next release of tC.)
