It works a charm! I really believe this is a correct use of MT, and applaud your inventiveness.
Google Translate for Translators (GT4T) is a translator’s productivity tool that seamlessly integrates Google Translate into all text applications. It can help you translate faster by replacing selected source text of your choice with translations from Google.
GT4T pro works in all applications. GT4T pro is an unobstrusive stand-alone Windows application. After running it in the system tray, you can then use the system hot keys it provides in Word, Trados, Wordfast, notpad, webpages, etc. In fact, the hot keys work anywhere you can type text.
Select and hit the hot key. Whenever and where-ever you select some text (Always use CTRL+SHIFT+Right or Left Arrow to select texts. It will be much faster than using the mouse!) and hit the hot key (CTRL+J by default), the text will be replaced by its translation from Google Translate.
Special hot keys for various CAT tools. If you are using TagEditor, Translator’s Workbench, Trados 2009, Wordfast pro and SDLX, Hit CTRL+ALT+J, the current segment will be automatically translated and hit CTRL+ALT+K, the next segment will be automatically translated.
Many Language pairs: Google Translate translates between 52 languages and GT4T supports all languages pairs that GT works with! Check Google Translate website for a complete list of available languages.
GT4T never expires! GT4T is not a freeware, but you can use the trial version as long as you wish. A nag screen will appear occasionally after you use it 500 times but you don’t have to pay – if you don’t mind being nagged:)
Google Dictionary & Plain Text Pasting: Select a word anywhere and press down CTRL+SHIFT+D to check the word in Google multilingual dictionary instantly. Press CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste text without format information (font, size, color, etc). These functions are free: you will never get nag screens when using them.
GT4T is available in two versions: Word Edition and Professional Edition. Word Edition is an word add-on that works within Microsoft Word and Professional Edition Works in all applications. The two versions can coexist on one computer. If you buy the license for the pro edition, the Word edition will also be licensed.
