Does anyone know the name of the Italian-English CD-Rom that allows you to 'toggle' (ie highlight the unknown Italian word in MS Word, and its English translation comes up automatically above the Italian word?) - I only heard about it from the post below by Katherine Zei... does this actually exist, and if so, what is the name of the dictionary? (Garzanti doesn't make any reference to doing this...)

Ragazzini Feb 12

I use the Ragazzini which has a lot of expressions and entries, but is a bit of a pain to use. You can't paste words into the query box, and you have to put in the masc. sing. or infinitive version of the word otherwise it won't recognise it.

I like Ragazzini... but I should have bought the one (I think it's Garzanti) that has the Word toggle that allows you to click on the word in Word and it will show you the entry on the same screen.

Usability is almost a more important factor than the number of words, I've found.

Good luck!

Garzanti Sep 16, 2007

Hi,
It's Garzanti. You can use its "point & go" function function, which allows you to drag a magnifying glass to the word you need and a box opens with the dictionary entry.
The CD came with the dictionary I bought a few years ago, so I don't know what they're offering now. Every so often it makes Word freeze, but it's pretty rare!

Thanks Catherine,

Yes it is indeed Garzanti - I have just ordered the CD-Rom (without the big book) thru the Garzanti site (which goes directly to http://www.ibs.it - Internet Bookshop Italia) - see the following info:
