Dicitionary hookup in CAT Tool?

Hello, I'm currently translating in Word. I am using an electronic dictionary for assitance.

After translating for a while i decided to lookup what was possible using software and I discovered CAT-tools.

I tried Wordfast and MetaTextis and they were basically more or less them same. Although the techniques with segments and such are probably very handy for full-time translaters.

Now Since this translation is more or less a one-time job I'm wondering if any CAT-tools, instead of asking me to translate segments, can sort of hook up to a dictionary and show floating suggestions for words as I type?

sort of like Google Suggest feature.

Have you tried Babylon? To see a list of possible translation, you just have to click on the word, then Shift + left mouse button.

I have found it quite useful.

The site is: www.babylon.com
