Missing piece

Oh well... It's been a quite while since I posted last time.

I happened to remember that there was a piece of information missing in the AppleTrans manual. I don't know how many people use Corpus Sharing, but there is an interesting feature in it.

In the Corpus Sharing view, when you click Publish button, AppleTrans will randomly select a port through which others connect to your corpora. And here is the trick. When you option click Publish button, AppleTrans always assign a fixed port number. And this port number is defined in the AppleTrans plist with "PrefsCorpusSharingNetServicePort" key.


So what's the deal? You now have an IP address and a fixed port for your host AppleTrans. If ever there is a way to make a connection to the host using this information, you may share your corpora over internet, out of the range that Bonjour covers. All right, let's discuss the rest next time.

just keeping it alive! I'm a translator and didn't know about AppleTrans - stumbled across it by chance - delighted to find it.

Can we take it that AppleTrans is no longer under development or will we be pleasantly surprised at some point to find a brand new version?

Is there any way to export the 'source' and 'target' from corpus to another program so I can create a list of glossary for my specific project? If yes, how?
