Adequate application for very simple translation.
Worth 1/2 of the listed price.

No Japanese here either, not a single one.

I wonder where they all went? Nanking, maybe?

If I can't demo with german then I can't demo at all. You lost a potential sale because of it.

Based on the 5.0b4 demo: (1) the 1st alleged Fr-En translation is actually Portuguese-French(!); (2) the format doesn't allow connections between different forms of the same word (e.g., "être" & "est"); (3) the dictionary is filled with seemingly random two-word combinations, including ungrammatical and implausible ones (e.g., "commune petit", "commune peur", and "commune y").

If the full version of WTX has those kinds of perversities, then it is worthless, but perhaps it just has a very bad demo.

Just an update: My earlier post here was read by the author, Mr Gislason. He has now apologized and refunded the money.

I initially sent this message to MacUpdate management, but Joel has suggested I post it here, which I'm happy to do (only editing slightly from the original).

I'd like to tell you my experience with Word Translator.

After placing the order, I eventually received the WT CD in the mail - much later I received the exact same disc again. As I recall at least one of them was shipped from Hong Kong (not Iceland, as one would expect). My credit card wasn't charged at the time. However, the software required a LONG registration code, and a complicated registration procedure - apparently, there was a time limit on it, or something. Too bad the guy takes weeks or even months to answer his mail.

I never got the darn thing to register itself. Apparently, once I received the registration code, based on a different program code I had to send him first, the time span permitted was long since over. Or possibly it had something to do with a system or program update I did in the interim. In any case, I kept asking for a code that actually worked, and receiving answers rarely, putting it mildly. Needless to say, I wasn't impressed. By now, yes, I had been charged, and a higher amount than was the specified price.

It's been a long, long time since I heard from this fellow at all. I have given up all hopes of getting my money back, or software that actually works. By the way, in my limited testing of Word Translator I came upon lots of plain errors in the Swedish/English dictionary, so maybe it wouldn't have been much use to me even if I had gotten it unlocked.

Anyhow, noticing the frequent mention of this program in the MacUpdate newsletter, I wanted to relate my experience. In my letters to Mr Gislason and associates (if such associates actually exist), I have been courteous, although naturally increasingly insistent. He has no reason to ignore me that I can imagine (at least not if he were a responsible software developer), nor has he implied as much. He just doesn't answer, and as I said, even when I did hear from him it was a rare event indeed.

Maybe others have had better experiences with Word Translator, and maybe the registration process is easier now - I do hope so. But as far as I'm concerned, the author is singularly undeserving of having his software listed at a fine and popular site such as MacUpdate.
