Re: Paper Translation
Click "Advanced Options" and then, from the "Subject Glossary" menu,
"Medicine." This seems to catch many words that have different meaning in
anatomy than in colloquial language (e.g., the German "Wirbel," which
Babelfish seems to invariably translate as "eddy" is correctly translated
WorldLingo as "vertebra").
None finds "vortex/vertex"? :o)
Haven't tried it for French, and I should also
point out that WorldLingo seems to hang (the page, not your computer) far
more often than Babelfish. And even here, as Phil said, you'll have to
translate the translation because it produces a literal readout, with few
corrections for sentence structure or other complex nuances of language.
In this respect French is much more like English (and most of the rest of
the world) than German, so don't fear. :-)
