Hello,


Does anybody knows/uses Xanadu from Foreignword? It would seem a very useful bit of software, but I would like to get some opinions by other users before installing it.

Any advice will be gladly received.


TIA

I use Xanadu Mar 12, 2002

And I love it, to tell you the truth. It simplifies your work. For very specialized glossaries/dictionaries, etc, you will have to open other sessions of your browser, but it works and it\'s worth it.


Cheers,


P.

Useful Mar 12, 2002

It is really useful tool, especially for those who works in multiple languages. One of its disadvantages is that it does not open a new browser window for translation but uses the current or the last viewed.

It's neat Mar 12, 2002

Hi there,


It\'s a neat little software, but I somehow always forgot that I had it installed and fired up Google instead, so I eventually uninstalled it.


In fact, I think that the most useful feature is the ability to search for translators in other language combinations from your desktop instead of going to Proz or other translator directories.


But try it out, chances are you will like it.
