How to use

Simply hold your cursor over a word on your Web page and the translation is displayed in a pop-up window. For example: you could be looking at a Spanish website and you can't understand the word partiendo, just hold your mouse over the word on the Web page and the translation pops up for you.
  • Get instant results - Searching in a Windows®-based environment Find the word you want! Just highlight a word and with one keystroke you can see the translation. For example: you are a German-speaker and you receive a conference agenda by email from a colleague in America. You can't understand the words plenary lectures and abstracts; in the email just double-click on the words that you want to look up and the translations are displayed for you.
  • Replace function Perhaps you are applying for a job in France and are typing a letter to accompany your CV and you are not sure which translation of the word skills to use in this instance. Just type skills into your word processor document, double-click on it, and select the appropriate French translation - compétence - from the entry in the Search window; then just use the iFinger Replace function to copy the word back into your letter.
