Working from the command area: OpenTM2cmd

Using the OpenTM2 windows is only one way of performing translation tasks with this product. An alternative way is to type instructions directly in the system’s command area.

To start a task from the command area:

  1. Type a command and its parameters in your operating system’s command area (next to the command prompt) according to the command syntax described in the following chapters.
  2. Press Enter.

Note that lowercase letters in a parameter name are optional and need not be typed. A mixture between uppercase and lowercase letters is allowed. However, a muddled letter sequence like in OVerWRiTe must not be used. The parameters can be entered in any order whatever.

To process several commands in sequence, type the individual commands into a batch file (*.BAT or *.CMD) using any text editor. You can execute these commands by starting the batch file.

To avoid retyping of long text strings in commands, you can also type a command and its parameters in a text editor, which is capable of the Copy to clipboard function. You can then paste the text string from the clipboard directly into your system’s command area and start the task.

How to read syntax diagrams

In this chapter diagrams are used to illustrate the programming syntax. To use a diagram, follow a path from left to right, top to bottom, adding elements as you go. In these diagrams, all spaces and other characters are significant.

Each diagram begins with a double right arrowhead and ends with a right and left arrowhead pair. Lines beginning with single right arrowheads are continuation lines.
Chap17b Figure 1.gif

Keywords are all in lowercase, but can be entered in uppercase or in lowercase. Variable values that you provide are shown in italics and are usually in lowercase. Where values are shown in uppercase, they should be entered as they appear.

In a choice of items, the default item is always shown above the main line:
Chap17b Figure 2.gif

Optional syntax elements are shown below the main line:
Chap17b Figure 3.gif

A repeat arrow shown above an item or a stack of items indicates that you can specify the item multiple times or specify more than one of the items. A character (such as a comma) on the repeat arrow line indicates that the items must be separated by that character. A repeatable operand is shown like this:
Chap17b Figure 4.gif

Syntax diagrams can be broken into fragments. A fragment is indicated by vertical bars with the name of the fragment between the bars. The fragment is shown following the main diagram, like so:

Analyzing a document or folder

Purpose

To analyze a document or a set of documents it might be more convenient to use a command instead of OpenTM2 windows. It is particularly useful if you have many large documents or folders that you want to analyze overnight.

Format

The following syntax diagram describes how you analyze documents from the Windows (R) command line. Note that lowercase letters in a parameter name are optional and need not be typed.
Chap17b Figure 6.gif

Parameters
  • /TAsk=ANALYSIS
ANALYSIS specifies that you want to analyze documents.
  • /FLD= folder
folder specifies the name of a folder that contains the documents that you want to analyze.
  • /FIles= document_name
document_name specifies the name of a document to be analyzed.
If you specify several documents, enclose the document names in brackets and separate them by commas.
If you want to specify a list of document names in a list file, refer to this list file by preceding the list file name with the @ symbol (@list_file_name). In the list file enclose the document names in brackets and separate them by commas.
If you do not specify the FIles option, all documents in the folder are analyzed.
  • /OPtions=
This parameter is particularly useful if you have Translation Memory databases available from previous translations. It specifies the following:
  • ADDTOMEM
OpenTM2 can search existing Translation Memory databases for segments that match segments in the document being analyzed. Segments that match exactly or almost exactly are copied into the Translation Memory associated to the document or folder being analyzed. In that way, you can start to fill a document-specific Translation Memory even before its translation has begun.
  • AUTO
You can choose to have Translation Manager automatically replace sentences with matches that already exist in the Translation Memory. This substitution is done only for exact matches. The document is then already partially translated when you start working with it, enabling you to focus on the translation of new segments.
  • AUTOCONTEXT
See the explanation for AUTO. However, if more than one exact match has been found, the translation of the segment is to be taken from the same document.
  • AUTOLAST
See the explanation for AUTO. However, if more than one exact match has been found, the most recent translation of the segment is to be taken.
  • AUTOJOIN
Joins neighboring segments. This can be useful if you want to analyze a document that you have worked with before and where you joined neighboring text segments before you translated them. During a new analysis run these segments are treated as separate units again. However, in the associated Translation Memory there is a match (translation) for the joined segments only. To find this match more easily during automatic substitution, this option joins neighboring segments in the document to be analyzed. Note that neighboring segments are only joined if for the first segment a fuzzy match has been found.
  • TMMATCH
OpenTM2 counts the number and type of matches found in the Translation Memory for the document. The document is then segmented and the matches are counted, but no segments are replaced with matches found in the Translation Memory.
If you also specify AUTO, OpenTM2 automatically replaces segments with matches found in the Translation Memory and counts the number and type of matches replaced.
  • SENDTOMT
OpenTM2 prepares untranslated segments for the processing by a machine translation system
  • UNTRANSLATED
All untranslated segments are to be stored in a separate file.
  • ADJUSTLEADWS
During whitespace handling of automatic substitution, leading whitespaces are adjusted to whitespaces in source segment.
  • ADJUSTTRAILWS
During whitespace handling of automatic substitution, trailing whitespaces are adjusted to whitespaces in source segment.
  • RESPECTCRLF
During whitespace handling of automatic substitution, substitution takes place with respect of CRLF in the segment.
  • REDUNTCOUNT
Prepare information for redundancy counting
  • STOPATFIRSTEXACT
Do no look for memory proposals in the remaining memories when an exact match has been found
  • IGNORECOMMENTED
Ignore memory proposals which have a comment
  • /MEm= memdb
memdb specifies a Translation Memory or a list of Translation Memory databases that is to be searched when ADDTOMEM has been specified.
  • /OVerwrite=
Specifies if an existing document will be overwritten when its translation has already been started. (NO is the default).
  • /QUIET
If you specify the parameter in this format, you are not prompted with any message window. If you do not specify any of the /quiet paramaters, a message window pops up whenever an error occurs or when the task has successfully completed.
  • /QUIET=NOMSG
If you specify this parameter, you are not prompted with any message window. Any error message text is routed to stdout.

Note: You can type the commands in uppercase, lowercase, or in mixed-case letters. You may not use any wildcard characters, such as an asterisk (*).

Examples

The following example shows how to analyze a document by using the OpenTM2cmd command.
Example

OpenTM2cmd /task=analysis  /fld=myfol /files=16.scr
          /options=(addtomem,auto,untranslated) /mem=oldmem

In this example, the document to be analyzed has the file name 16.scr and is stored in folder myfol. Any matches found in the Translation Memory oldmem are to be added to the Translation Memory of folder myfol. Any original segment for which an exact match has been found is to be replaced with its corresponding translation segment. All the remaining segments that are not translated are to be stored in a separate file.

Archiving a Translation Memory

Purpose

To archive a Translation Memory it might be more convenient to use a command instead of OpenTM2 windows.

If you have many large documents that you want to export, using the command area of your operating system instead of OpenTM2 windows might be more convenient.

Before exporting, ensure that:

  • OpenTM2 has been started.
  • A folder exists that contains the documents to be exported.

The properties of the folder or of the documents give information on the used markup table and other document-related information that is necessary when exporting the respective documents.

To work from the command area, use the OpenTM2cmd command. Its syntax is described in the following chapter.

Format

The following syntax diagrams describe how you export a document from the Windows command area. Note that lowercase letters in a parameter name are optional and need not be typed.
Chap17b Figure 13.gif

Parameters
  • /TAsk=DOCEXP
DOCEXP specifies that you want to export a document.
  • /FLD= folder
folder specifies the name of the folder containing the documents that you want to export.
  • /STartpath= startpath
startpath specifies the drive, directory, or both where the file exported is to be placed. The path information specified becomes part of, that is it prefixes, the name of the document. The directory specified must already exist.
If you omit this parameter, the document is placed in the drive and directory specified in file_name. However, this drive and directory does not become part of the document name.
  • /FIles= file_name
file_name specifies the name of the document you want to export. The file_name specification can include the drive and directory where the file exported is to be placed. The subdirectory specified here must already exist.
You can use the wildcard characters ‘*’ and ‘?’ in the name part of the parameter to export all documents matching the given name pattern (e.g. “C:\DOCEXP\*.DOC” to export all documents with a file name extension of “.DOC” to the directory “C:\DOCEXP”).
If you specify several documents, enclose the document names in brackets and separate them by commas.
If you want to specify a list of document names in a list file, refer to this list file by preceding the list file name with the @ symbol (@list_file_name). In the list file enclose the document names in brackets and separate them by commas.
  • /OPtions=
Specifies whether you want to export an original document (SOURCE), a translation (TARGET), a document with nonmatching segments (SNOMATCH), or a validation document (VALDOC).
  • /VAL=
Specifies additional options for the export of validation documents. These options control the format of the validation document (XML, HTML, DOC or ODT), the inclusion of protected segments (PROTSEGS) and allows to combine all exported documents into one validation document (COMBINE). If you specify more than one option, you must enclose them in brackets and seperate the individual options using a comma.
  • /OVerwrite=
Specifies whether an existing document is overwritten when exporting a document with the same name (NO is the default).

Note: You can type the commands in uppercase, lowercase, or in mixed-case letters.

Examples

The following example shows how to export a document using the OpenTM2cmd command with the TASK option.
Example

OpenTM2cmd  /task=docexp /fld=pharma /files=c:\med.txt  /options=target
           /overwrite=yes

In this example, the document to be exported is called med.txt. It is contained in folder pharma . The translation of med.txt is exported to the root directory of drive C. If med.txt already exists, it is overwritten.

The following example shows how to export documents in external format with a path.
Example

OpenTM2cmd  /task=docexp /fld=sample1 /startpath=i:\transl
           /files=(test1\demo1.scr,test1\demo2.scr)

The document test1\demo1.scr is exported to i:\transl\test1\demo1.scr and the document test1\demo2.scr is exported to i:\transl\test1\demo2.scr.
The following example shows how to export all documents of the folder as validation format documents in HTML format and to combine them into a single document.
Example

OpenTM2cmd  /task=docexp /fld=pharma /files=c:\valdoc\*.* /options=VALDOC
           /val=(HTML,  COMBINE)  /overwrite=yes

In this example, all documents of the folder pharma are exported in validation format and are combined into one HTML document. The combined document is stored in the directory C:\valdoc\ and has a name of pharma.html (When several documents are combined ino one validation document the name of the folder is used for the combined document).

Importing documents

Purpose

If you have many large documents that you want to import, using the command area of your operating system instead of OpenTM2 windows might be more convenient.

Before importing, ensure that:

  • OpenTM2 has been started.
  • A folder has been created. This folder can still be empty and will later contain the documents to be imported.

The properties of the folder give information on the used markup language and other document-related information that is necessary when importing the respective documents.

To work from the command area, use the OpenTM2cmd command. Its syntax is described in the following chapter.

(d:\medset.doc,  d:\medfrm.doc, d:\medb01.doc, d:\medb02.doc)

The file medlist.lst must be located either on the current directory, or (if it is not in the current directory) you must specify the complete path where it is located. For example, @d:\test\medlist.lst.

Note: There is a @ sign before the drive letter.

All files contained in medlist.lst are to be imported into folder pharma and are located in the root directory of drive D. If one of the files already exists in the specified folder, it is not overwritten and you get a message.
