Can anyone recommend a translation software for French/English/French.
And, if possible easy to use and not too expensive.
Thanks a million!
Sib.

CAT tools are not language-specific; they normally support all major languages. Or did you rather mean language-specific resources, such as electronic dictionaries?

Actually, I found this website, TranslationSoftware4u.com, that sells translation software. I don't know anything about this software and was wondering if anybody does and I would welcome any comments.
Thank you.

That web-site speaks for itself, and for the products it sells.

You'd get better results and have more time for your tomato growing if you avoided these machine translation products altogether!

CAT tools are good allies when the source text has a lot of repeted words. If not it's just a waste of time and money.
