Dear Prozians,

I've found those resources that I'd like to share with you:

(1) http://www.maxprograms.com This site has a couple of free utilities:

* Converter of CSV files to TMX format (the standard format used by most of CAT tools).
For example, you can process MS Glossaries, that are CSV files (beware that lately they are saved as Unicode files, so you need to convert them to mono-byte code page files before using them with this utility. MS Access can help a lot to deal with those files).

* TMX validator: to check that a TM in TMX format is OK. I think it does not work 100% OK, but it detects some errors.

PLease note both utilities require Java Runtime installed in your PC. If necessary, you can download it, for example, from http://java.com/en/

Furthermore, this site has interesting links about TMX and other programs.

(2) http://yagoohoogle.com/ is a simple page that shows the search results from Google and Yahoo side by side.

(3) Google's keyword "define:" returns English words definitions. The good news is that now it returns definitions of terms in other languages as Spanish, German, French, Italian, Chinese, etc. You can give it a try, for example searching "define: PC". Check the line after definitions, something like "Display definitions found in English French German Italian Russian Spanish All languages"

Enjoy!

Pablo
