Wordfast version 5.53 with Word 2002

I'm a beginner in WF... I've successfully connected the dictionary icon with my external application "Hazon clic" (which is located in my hard disk) but I'm still unable to set the correct key to search a word in my application. The combination" Hazon clic- search word-enter " doesnt'seem to work properly, because I need to copy and paste the searched word in my application to get the translation every time. Does anyone be helpful?

Good luck,

Thanks John,
I generally use Babylon to search words, but not to translate phrases, because the MT is really terrible.
Anyhow I'll try your suggestion about intelliwebsearch
