French term or phrase: Traiter dans un outil
"Trois types de calculateur peuvent être traités dans cet outil "

Is it common to use this form? I should have thought that "par cet outil" would be more appropriate but perhaps I'm very mistaken. I'd be grateful to know what's what here.

Secondly isn't the sentence quoted quite an awkward way to put things? Or is it just my impression...

(3 types of calculators) can be used within this tool/system/application


Explanation:
based on your other question as well, that the user will choose a calculator type, this is what I understood

(3 types of calculator methods) can be used within this tool/system/application


(3 types of calculators) are furnished within this tool/system/application

It gives me the impression the software simulates 3 different calculator types and the user chooses which to use whenever

Gita, as to your last question, sorry, I don't know if the sentence is specifically awkward.

Asker: Thanks for the explanation. So you do not find the sentence structure awkward?

Not (really) awkward


Explanation:
Well, let's put it that way: when I first read it I just didn't notice there was a somewhat unusual structure to it (just thought of a possible translation); so I suspect other native speakers wouldn't notice either. In that sense it's not 'awkward'. That being said, after you drew my attention to it, I did feel this is a 'funny' way to put it (the kind that can lead to confusion). Hope this helps. As writeaway suggested, though, this is not really a translation question (provided, of course, that you're quite sure about what these calculators are and what the application does with them).

Asker: Thanks. You have been a huge help. I just didn't have the time to get back online after seeing the first two remarks as it was evening by then here. I'll now have to see what I can do to either turn this question monolingual or ...
