WinDi is a complete multilingual solution. Example of use: Help in Understanding

For example imagine you have received a letter that contains the following sentence in French:

\'Nos sous-traitants enverront les marchandises par avion.\'

The key word in this sentence is, of course, the verb - in this case \'enverront\' - which is an interesting example of irregularly conjugated verb. Indeed, \'enverront\' is the conjugation in the future tense of the verb \'envoyer\', which is \'to send\' in English. This verb, like many other ones in all languages, is very difficult to understand when it is conjugated. The meaning of the sentence may get lost...

WinDi gives a solution for this kind of understanding problem!

The solution is child\'s play... just click the word that is not understood,

then click the \'WTH double editor\' icon, and WinDi finds it for you,

thanks to its high-level algorithm! (see example above)

Re: WinDi All-in-one Translation Help Package Jan 4, 2002

I have a similar tool that costs half that - L&H Simply Translating. I paid 49 bucks for it about a year/year and a half ago. Gives 5 languages in both directions as well as the functions you mention. I must say, though, that the sentence/paragraph/page translations are FAR from perfect. Some are laughable. I\'m willing to bet that any product claiming to do so much produces similar results. for word checks, though, it\'s a great product. Definitely worth the 49 dollars I spent.

However, checking at their website - - seems you can no longer purchase the product online.
