The following scam email arrived in my inbox about 9 hours ago from the following email address:

Dallas, GT4T developer via

It invites you to click a link to "simply click here to tell me this email is unwanted." (the link is the words "click here") . I did NOT click it of course. Therefore I am posting this to warn others not to click anything if they receive the same or a similar email. Glossary has been added to GT4T!

Hi Steven,

I am the developer of GT4T. I write to you because as a translator, you may find GT4T helpful. Send me a reply or simply click here to tell me this email is unwanted. Glossary has been added to GT4T! You can now select a term anywhere in any program and press Ctrl+d (Cmd+d on Mac) to check Glossary results without having to leave your work and open a browser.

GT4T grabs translation suggestions from Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, DeepL, Yandex, Linguee, Glosbe, WordReference, and Microsoft Terminology, IATE, all without having to leave your work and open a browser.

GT4T works as a super add-on to all Windows and MacOS based apps or CATs. You can select some source text anywhere and press ctrl+j (Cmd+j in Mac), and you get translation suggestions from multiple MT Engines or dictionaries in a neat little pop-up.

And then you can pick one from the list to insert where you are typing.

And the amazing dictionary feature: select a word anywhere and press ctrl+d (Cmd+d in Mac), you get a pop-up of results. Highlight one and press Enter to insert!

It also offers special shortcuts to translate segments in all major CAT tools.

Helpful without being complex. Check out this youtube video to see how easy it is!

Use the following link to download. It is free!
Thank you. Let me know if there is anything.

Are you absolutely sure it's a scam? Apr 25

Appears legit Apr 25

Perhaps the OP can say why he thinks it's a scam. As far as can be seen by the post, the links all lead to gt4t's legitimate website. amazonses is a legitimate email broadcast service by Amazon Simple Email Services.

Not a scam Apr 27

Sometimes people can be a bit too paranoid about this kind of thing. I've been using GT4T for a few years now and Dallas has always been quick to respond and help with any minor issues I've had. I clicked on the link in the post and it took me to what looks like the official site. As far as I can see, it is not a scam.

GT4T is obviously not a panacea, but properly used with criteria and discretion by a professional translator, it is a very useful tool.
