I just installed the latest and greatest from Ashampoo, and while that isn't the point of this post, the machinations I had to go through to download and install the software led me to pass on the following info to my fellow Dot Techies.
Following the instructions to get Ashampoo Burning Studio Advanced 2010, I realized I had been directed to one of my favorite sites: Chip Online de (http://www.chip.de/). I find a lot of useful info on different websites across the globe; many, many which are foreign to me. I live in America, and my understanding of languages other than English are, to say the most, "somewhat lacking". I took both Spanish and German in school, and have studied Russian, Japanese and French, but since I don't use any of them often enough I forget a LOT!
So to help me out I have tried many different types of translation software -- stand-alone, pages and browser pop-ups and windows -- but I have finally discovered one of the best to help those, like myself, who are "language challenged". While this particular piece of software is not completely accurate, one can still easily determine the intent of the phrasing within the context of the translation. But how this software excells is in how the translation is accomplished. It provides a fantastically simple way to perform the translation. Simply highlight whatever you want translated, press Ctrl & Alt (default settings which can be modified), and the translation appears in a pop-up window. It automatically selects the last language used to perform the translation, but allows you to change to over 40 different languages, and even includes an auto-detect feature to perform the translation.
The software is called Dicter, and is based upon Google's translation client. It is freeware, and can be found here: http://dicter.net/. I highly recommend you give it a try.

The first thing I'm going to do is reply to the latest demand from the Revenue. . . in Estonian. I'll say me-no-understand what the hell they're on about now and please to write again when they can the Estonian speak.
(Of course, if they're running dicter as well, that's me stuffed.)
Many thanks again, your tip-off is one of the most helpful of 2010 as far as I'm concerned.
