It's David Lancashire writing from Popup Chinese. This is a quick note to let you all know we've just released free Chinese translation software for the translation community. This downloadable Windows application offers the same functionality as expensive machine translation engines, but is free of charge.
This translation software lets you add words and phrases, works offline when you don't have an Internet connection, and taps into the Google translation service to improve translation quality when you're online. This results in:
* total control over your own translations
* really good default translations of proper nouns, dates, etc.
* your own private dictionary for adding words and phrases
This is our first beta release, so we're soliciting suggestions and feedback on improvements. Feedback is very welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're interested in helping out in our efforts to produce a free translation engine but don't do much translation, you can also help add words and phrases using our online chinese dictionary.
