- yes, their policies are tuff. Also, I was disappointed not to see any real new development from version 6 to 7 even though the upgrade price was $52 (incl the $7 insurrance and VAT). Babylon is fine by itself, but it's biggest advantage is the possible use of add-on dictionaries - I have quite a number. Some of them were expensive, but most were free. Together they allow Babylon to answer almost any question faster than any other I have tried.
Despite of all this, I believe my next program in the field of stand-alone dictionaries will be the PRO version of WordWeb
, though it can easily / will be much more expensive than Babylon.
So, now that it has been half a year since my purchase of Babylon 7
I am merely a modest fan.
