can I call you Jody?
Sure, it's my name. =]
1. What does this first script cost?
2. How do I pay for it?
3. Is the payment to you or DC using PayPal?
No payment is required. You can click the coin beneath my forum nick if you feel inclined to donate.
4. The task is the first of a series of 5 + steps to create a simple translation platform from English to German.
5. How could we deal with the rest?
6. French Italian and Spanish would hopefully follow.
This sounds like it's quickly becoming more than a Coding Snack.
7. Can I have some choice in the tool or language used?
8. I began with the desire to use a language that is close to natural English.
9. The Zeno interpreter followed by C-Sharp would be my choices; before ahk.
The programmers here at DonationCoder are not hired or retained in any way. We're just a group that enjoy programming and helping others. In other words, I'm not sure how to answer this question. If you want something written in a certain language, feel free to say so. Maybe somebody else reading this thread will jump in. I can program in C, Java, AutoHotkey and a little bit of C++, VB and Python. I've never used Zeno or any of the newer .NET or C# type of languages.
The initial test, with the same file, as I had provided you with, produced the following results.
* No words were tagged, which were followed directly by a punctuation mark.
So I removed all punctuation marks from the text and reran the script with the following result
* In most cases initial words and closing words of sentences were still not being tagged.
Can it be that "invisible" end-of-line characters are causing the problem.
I'm confused. Are you saying that the original files in the zip you posted earlier are not working with the script I provided?
Where there are instances of the same word appearing with different tags, how will the script react?
It should have three possibilities:
1. Ignore all because of failing logic
2. Take the first as being the most typical or
3. Take each variant inserting each in turn in separate brackets after the word.
This is the way in which I expect it to be programmed.
I can write code to handle any of the three options you mention.
My last file test was based on using UTF8 coded text.
This could pose a problem since AutoHotkey does not support Unicode/UTF-8 natively. Can you provide me with the files you're working with?
