Microsoft Windows Vista Translation software compatibility
Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 Translation software compatibility
Windows Vista and Windows 7, the latest operating system incarnation from Microsoft, have produced new headaches for translation software requirements. Much existing budget software is incompatible, only working on Windows 95,98,ME,2000,NT and XP. LEC and Systran both raced new 2007 Vista compatible product versions to market and have confirmed that these versions are also Windows 7 compatible. LEC Translate and Power Translator were ready in February of 2007 and Systran's new version 6 software released in April 2007. LEC's new product range was also the first to feature Mozilla Firefox add-ins compatibility. 2008 versions of the software have proven to be fully Windows 7 compatible. Neurotran's range works fine with Vista and Windows 7.
Machine translation software versus human translators
Machine translation software continues to improve and whilst being an economical alternative to human translation services it is no substitute without good training in use, and the observation of simple rules such as inputting plain rather than colloquial idiomatic English in the first instance. Also many users do not realise the simple right click facility in many of the programs offering alternative translations.
