  3. Run the Program

    Click CafeTran.app to run the program!



If you get the message “CafeTran.app can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer”, change the settings for Mac OS X GateKeeper to permit CafeTran to be run. See the quick solution here.

Note that with very large resources, for example translation memories or glossaries 100 MB or more in size, it may be advisable to increase the amount of RAM made available to CafeTran in Java. This can be done in the program’s options (menu Edit | Options | Memory tab | Java memory size (MB).) Consider increasing the default value from 1024 to 2048, for example. Restart the program to apply the new Java memory settings.
