is there any add-on or regex or macro to split long text to sentence boundary



  • I am doing translation work that requires me to break long pages or paragraphs at sentence boundary, that is full-stop (.) for English, and Poorn-Viraam (।) for Hindi.

    It is called "align"ing or (probably) tokenizing.

    For Notepad++ (w9-32 bit), is there any add-on or regex or macro to split long text to sentences. (in plain text txt files).,

    In regex, I can’t just find . and replace with .\r\n because . is also used as abbreviation indication, say, in i.e., e.g., pvt., ltd., inc., etc… so it would replace there also, that is not desirable. Also, if several sentences are there wihtin parentheses () [] {}, then also, these should not be broken.

    So, I guess a single regex command just woundn’t do, or it will become too complex to take care of all the possibilities.

    it has to be a set of regex executed one after another, or a macro,

    or if someone has developed some add-on for that?

    Thanks.
