Quickly get to translation provider list in Project Settings

This simple script takes you to the Translation Memory and Automated Translation window under All Language Pairs.

Hotkey: tm

::TM::
Send !p   ;this is my shortcut to get to Project Settings (Alt+P), if yours is different, adapt accordingly
Sleep 100
Send Proj
Sleep 500
Send Lang
Send {Down 2}
return

  • Thanks, Nora!
    I didn’t know I could navigate through the settings in this way.
  • Glad you like it! I find it very useful, and easier to remember than hotkeys with modifiers.
  • Thanks Nora, that’s a very promising script!

    I got it to work on my computer, but perhaps you could help me take it a step further? I can’t figure out how to navigate the Project Settings screens.

    I would like to auomate adding whatever is on my clipboard to a custom field in the TM, as shown below.

    Any idea how I can get to that screen and that field with AHK?


    EDIT : I got a bit further but now I’m stuck. I can’t figure out how to open the first value field with the keyboard to copy in it. Here’s what I have (hotkey and project settings shortcuts are different than in your example)

    ^+t::
    Send ^+p
    Sleep 999
    Send Proj
    Sleep 999
    Send Lang
    Sleep 999
    Send All
    Sleep 999
    Send TR
    Sleep 999
    Send U
    Sleep 999

    Send ?? Need to code tab tab here??

    ??and here I can’t figure out how to open the first value field with the keyboard!??


    return


    EDIT 2

    Well, I figured it out! Thanks for the starting point Nora, I’m super happy with this script!

  • Very nice, Audrey! I'll give your script a try. The wait times seem a bit long, but if that's what it takes for everything to work, then that's what it takes. : )

  • Yes sorry they were extra long because I wanted to see the script play out! I’ll adjust, but I did try at first with Sleep 200-300 and it wasn’t enough for the screens to load, at least on my computer :)

  • Hotkey: tm

    How do you get TM or other letters without modifier keys to work as a hotkey? Do you press both at the same time? It doesn’t work for me.

  • Hi Audrey,

    Just press Space or Enter after pressing "tm" (not at the same time, just as if you were typing regularly).
