Translation Tuning and Predictability in Eclipse - Part 2


Our users love the many clever and inventive things Eclipse does for them using what we call our "AI" features. Prefixes and suffixes attach and correctly adjust spelling, Auto-brief suggests easy-to-stroke briefs on the fly, conflicts resolve accurately, Translation Magic fixes multi-stroke mistrokes, numbers convert beautfully, and more. It's truly spectacular stuff.


All of these wonderful features can be tweaked and tuned to work better with your preferences and writing style, and that's why Jeremy, Keith, and Michael have put together this webinar suite. Following Jeremy's overview, Michael will delve into the ways and workings of the much-loved but often-misunderstood Automatic Number Conversion feature. Seldom does a week go by when we don't see a post in Facebook by a reporter lamenting a problem with his or her numbers. These postings always end the same way, with a cry for help because the reporter doesn't know how to fix the problem. Number Conversion is a predictable feature, which means that once we learn how it works, we can get exactly the results we want—and expect. Best of all, it's easy to learn how to set up and control your numbers using this feature. Michael will show you how.


Join Michael Starkman, along with Keith Vincent and Jeremy Thorne, the creator of Eclipse, as they show you how to get the most out of Eclipse!

Translation Tuning and Predictability in Eclipse - Part 2


Automatic Number Conversion.


Within the AI feature set, this is probably the most widely used. Numbers are always a challenge and Eclipse uses natural language to make writing them easy. There is no need to visualize the number in your head first, so you can format it properly as you write it. Instead, with only a few exceptions, you can write exactly what you hear. MagicHandsWhen setting up this feature, there are two areas of Eclipse you must work with: your main dictionary and the controls in the numbers tab of the User Settings dialog.


In Part 2 of this webinar series, Michael Starkman is going to cover what should and should not be in your dictionary and how to properly define the entries that do belong in the dictionary. Also examined will be the pertinent dictionary filters to help you sort, find, and modify existing entries. Lastly, he's going to explore, in detail, the numbers tab in User Settings.


Some of what will be covered:



  • Defining numbers written out and from the number bar.
  • Words related to numbers.
  • The decimal point.
  • Ordinal numbers.
  • Currency or numbers related to money.
  • Units of measure.
  • Dates.
  • Y2K strokes, 2015, 2016, etc.
  • Numbers related to time.



  • Pertinent dictionary filters.
  • How to efficiently modify/delete entries.
  • Selecting multiple entries.



  • Ignore written numbers.
  • Process and as a number.
  • Number of digits.
  • Numeric Classes.
  • Time.
