hello

I come accross text in various languages in webpages, text documents, etc

I really want to be able to get an instant translation of a word as I read the text, instead of having to open a translation webpage or program and search there

I was thinking something like to be able to highlight some text and with a keyboard shortcut or a context menu entry to display the translation in a pop up near the highlighted text

has anyone come across such tool?

thanks

thanks!

this is very nice, exactly what I was looking for

the only problem is that it's not freeware Sad and it seems to consume lots of sys resources

babylon uses 3k memory, wordweb 5k and lingoes 1k

I liked lingoes very much, but I can't manage to make the "cursor translation mode" to work (to trigger translate with a mouse click)

also, I doesn't have all the languages I need and it's not that configurable Sad

I've used WordWeb Pro 5 for a year or more. It's great  Thmbsup but I don't see how it figures into the translation question.
