It is not a "machine translator" where one could expect to, for example, load an English document, push a button and obtain a perfect translation to the other language without any effort whatsoever. Many consumer language programs on the market today claim to be able to accomplish "machine translation" when, in fact, they actually operate much like Word Translator in translating text word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase Word Translator assumes that the user has at least a minimal knowledge of the other language because they must be able to select translation(s). Word Translator is a wonderful tool for language students, professional translators or anyone in between. For language students it can help improve vocabulary and comprehension. For professional translators it can eliminate a great deal of "grunt" work and quickly provide a rough translation, most often cutting translation time by 50% or more. Word Translator provides a number of different "operation modes" to help the user including a word translation mode, two spell-checking modes, a prediction mode and two document translation modes. Word Translator works in conjunction with most major Windows word processors (e.g. Word., WordPad, WordPerfect, MS Works) and many major applications including MS Publisher, Access and Excel. For Western European languages Word Translator can even be used with Windows Write or Notepad.

Any and all bi-directional language dictionaries can be installed on the same computer and directory and accessed from the same Word Translator program Each language version contains two "paired" or "coupled" dictionaries. For example, with any to/from English dictionary, there is both an English-?????? and a ??????-English dictionary Depending upon the specific language, each "paired" dictionary contains from approximately 10,000 to over 150,000 "base word" and "base phrase" entries in both "sides" of the "paired" dictionaries--roughly half one way (e.g. English to ??????) and half the other way (e.g. ?????? to English). A "base word" or "base phrase" is any word or phrase for which there exist one or more associated translations to the other language. Some to/from English language versions have more than a single size available. The sizes (I, II, III, IV) only reflect a different number of combined source language "base" entries. All smaller sized dictionary modules are created from the largest available dictionary module for that language. The size designations (I, II, III, IV, V, et cetera) only reflect dictionary modules with a different number of entries. III-sized language dictionary modules will usually contain all the entries contained in the I and II sized dictionary modules plus more. Likewise, II-sized dictionary modules usually contain all the entries contained in the I-sized dictionary modules plus more. A single "base" dictionary entry can be an individual word or a multiple word phrase. The number of entries does not include the number of translation(s) associated with any "base word" or "base phrase," consequently, the total number of words contained in any "paired" dictionary is more than double if not 2 1/2 to 3 times the total number o f"base" entries. Users can add any number of new words, phrases and/or translations to the dictionary. The only limit is the size of their hard drive. The program automatically "writes" reverse translations (to the "paired" dictionary) of each new entry made. For example, if the user were to add the new English "base phrase" "new car" with the translation XXXX, the program will automatically "write" XXXX to the "paired" dictionary as a "base phrase" with "new car" as the translation.
