GT4T license price will rise starting from November

Starting from November, 2011, GT4T license prices will double and the no-time-limit licenses will stop selling.
Google Translate is now a paid service and I pay for all the usages by GT4T users, including trial version users.

I have already paid my first alarming bill to Google and I have to raise the price of GT4T licenses to keep the project going.

The price change will not affect current users owning an no-time-limit license.

Set press CTRL or SHIFT twice as the hotkeys!

With GT4T version 4.22, you can select some source text and press CTRL twice quickly as the hot key! I find it much more convenient than the usual CTRL+J. Do try it!

It’s quicker because after your left hand are pressing the CTRL and SHIFT key while your right hand are pressing the LEFT or RIGHT arrow to make a selection, you can immediately hit CTRL button twice again to get the translation and you don’t need to use your right hand to get the J button.

Yes, always use keyboards to make a selection (CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT or RIGHT arrow), not the mouse!

To use the new hot keys, go to Hot Keys -> Redefine and then check the boxes before “Press CTRL twice” and “Press SHIFT twice”

Use Microsoft Terminology (Microsoft Glossaries) with GT4T

Besides Google Dictionary, you can also use Microsoft Terminology (Microsoft Glossaries) with GT4T Dictionary feature. To use Microsoft Terminology:

1. Double click the icon in your system tray to bring out GT4T setup screen.

2. In the “Dictionary Options” section, choose “Microsoft Terminology” as the engine and click OK.

3. Select a term in any application, and press down “CTRL+D” and a pop-up appears where you are typing.

4. To insert a translation to where you are typing, simply press the Space Bar.

How to transfer GT4T license (deprecated)

NOTE: License transfer is replaced by a more convenient “Retrieve License” feature.

Take the following steps to transfer GT4T license from com A to com B:

1. On com A, click the GT4T icon in your system tray and then run license information.
2. Write down the hardware identifier on com A.
2. Click Transfer License and then click “I am transferring OUT…”.
3. Start com B, and run License Information of GT4T.
4. Click Transfer License and then click “I am transferring IN…”.
5. Input the hardware identifier of com A and click OK.

Warning: To simplify the process, license transfer is not password protected. By clicking “I am transferring OUT…”, you are allowing your license to be transferred to any computer by someone who knows your hardware identifier. To cancel the license transfer process, simply run License Information on com A and click “License transfer in process. Click here to cancel.”

Don’t forget to use CTRL+Z!

Now you can hold down the WIN button while hitting the hotkeys to show a preview tip. A friend told me it is not really necessary. You can always paste the translation and then hit CTRL+Z to undo when you are unhappy.
Preview tip can be useful when you read a webpage and wants to get instant translation.
CTRL+Z in many applications undoes the last activity.
