The Client for Google Translate app has been working well for me lately by automagically translating highlighted text in various languages into English by clicking a pop-up icon. It works with Acrobat and Firefox, and has proven to be especially useful in translating plain text from Google Books. The translated text appears in a larger, scrollable pop-up box which can be saved to the clipboard. Freeware.

But if you want an app that provides an easy-to-use GUI for building & saving sets of search-replace operations -- which you can then call from a command-line -- consider BK ReplaceEm.

This 32-bit Windows freeware application hasn't been supported or distributed by its developer Bill Klein (BK) for a number of years. But it was once considered among the very best search-n-replace apps (free or not). And I think it still deserves such consideration.

For a rather complicated example of the very sort which originally inspired BK to create his application, see: <

BK ReplaceEM seems to have been republished by ecobyte software as Replace Text v2.2 (free).
