Text Translator Plus: More on Retranslation

This Tip applies to the following products:  

We have received these two very valid questions:

  1. Does Retranslation also work from English to Spanish?

  2. How does Word Magic Text Translator Plus “know” when to display Translation Options and when not to do it?


Our reply to question Number One is: Yes! It does!


Let's review a couple of examples we saw before:

A risky affair
( 1 ) Un asunto riesgoso
( 2 ) Un evento riesgoso
( 3 ) Una aventura amorosa riesgosa


If you are an English-speaking User and do not know enough Spanish it would be indeed “a risky affair” to make a blind decision or translate automatically and simply let the first option go to the Target (Output) Box. 


However, using the Retranslation feature available in the Plus Version you select the desired meaning after it is translated back into English.  Simply click on the corresponding button (located at the lower left hand corner of the Translation Options window, or else, in the upper left hand corner of the Interactive Window) and Voila!


A risky affair
( 1 ) A risky subject
( 2 ) A risky event
( 3 ) A risky love affair


Here is another English example:

Take a look at the table
( 1 ) Take a look at the table
( 2 ) Take a look at the index
( 3 ) Take a look at the high plateau.


Suppose you meant Option Number 2.  Click on “2” and see the Spanish result in the Output Box:  Échele un vistazo a la tabla”. 


Note: Meaning #1 was “mesa” (as in dining table).  Meaning #3 was “altiplano”
