Linux for Translators

My own OmegaT scripts

This page provides downloads of scripts that I have produced mainly for my own use in conjunction with OmegaT, together with brief descriptions.

OmegaT launcher

The OmegaT launcher is a small utility with graphical user interface for launching OmegaT on Linux or Windows. The launcher is particularly convenient when OmegaT functions are needed/desired that require OmegaT to be launched on the command line with relevant arguments. It also provides some useful tools for testing and troubleshooting. The tcl/tk script requires tcl/tk 8.6 or higher to be installed on your system.

Functions of the OmegaT launcher include:
