Project specific terms


(lee) #1

I am a complete beginner in using software to check simplified technical english, can some one tell me step by step how to add project specific terms to the exceptions list (words like compressor, generator, thermal).

Thanks in advance.

Do you want LanguageTool to give a warning if you use the word
"compressor"?

Then you need to add a rule for that. How to do that is described at
http://www.languagetool.org/development/#intro

Hello

I'm also new to the group but not to translation and CAT tools

From the little I have seen and my question yesterday kindly answered by dnaber, you would need to write rules (which I'm not very good at either)

As a complete beginner, you might need to try a simpler software like TransTools for Word where you can do this by just typing in the word/phrase to search for and the replacement term.

I hope no one is going to be angry with me for suggesting this. I'm sure that LanguageTool could do a better job cos you can write complicated rules to deal with specific cases but not if you are a beginner or can't write code.

Can you give an example of what LanguageTool complains about now? In other
words, what is the error message you get from LanguageTool for those terms
you want to ignore?

The error message is:

  1. Line 1, column 11
    Message: (Rule 1.1) The term 'generator' is not in the ASD-STE100 version 2 Dictionary as approved or not approved and is not defined as a Technical Name or as a Technical Verb. Do one or more of these: 1) Make sure that the spelling and the capitalization is correct. 2) In disambiguation.xml, add the word and possibly other words to make a PROJECTTERM. (deactivate)
    Context: Place the generator on level ground.

That is not an original LanguageTool error (we don't check for ASD-STE100),
but a rule that someone added. I suggest you contact your admin or the
person that provided those rules or that version of LanguageTool and ask
them for support.

Ok thanks for your time,

I did a search online for simplified english checkers and found it here.

http://www.simplified-english.co.uk/index.html

I didn't know there were various rule sets.

Lee,

I wrote the rules for ASD-STE100 (www.simplified-english.co.uk).

In disambiguation.xml, in the rulegroup id=PROJECTTERMS_APPROVED, add the project-specific Technical Names.

When I have time, I will write a page that explains the design of the rules. Meanwhile, send your questions to me (mike@techscribe.co.uk). I will answer questions about problems that are related to rules for ASD-STE100. For general guidelines about how to write rules, see the LanguageTool website.
