Some time ago my mouse started acting as a Spanish dictionary - displaying the Spanish (in very small type) of any English word that I hover over when I am using Internet Explorer. This is weird because I live in France, the main language on the computer is French, and I only translate French into English.
Does anyone know how I can get rid of it, or better still, change it to French.

Google Toolbar Jan 19, 2006

Do you have google toolbar installed? Google toolbar has a translation feature. If you do have it installed, go to google bar options so you can disable or change the language.

If you don't see the google bar, go to view>toolbar and make sure it's not there.

Good luck

The problem with IE is it installs things without asking you. Get Firefox, then you won't have to worry about this kind of thing happening, and you can go and find some of the many extensions that are extremely useful for translators.

Hi Timothy!

Could you please tell me something more about the Firefox extensions that are useful for translators? I think I'm aware only of KudoZ toolbar. Do you know any other? Thanks.

Prokop
