Polish language translation software #general


HNRosen@...
 

Because I am "foreign-language challenged" - no ability in that area - and
have need to write to and receive letters >from Polish archives, etc., I
searched the Web and found a company, "Translation Experts Ltd." that sells
multi-language translation software, including modules to go back-and-forth
from English to Polish. The software is called "Word Translator".
The "Polish Letter Writing Guides" available >from LDS and Polish Genealogical
Society are adequate for writing letters, but don't help much in understanding
a response.

Has any JewishGenner had experience with this software, or any other computer
programs that do the same thing?

I don't have any suggestions regarding translation software :-(. However, you
may want to try William Hoffman's article, Translating Letters >from the Polish
National Archives, published in the August 95 issue of Rodziny, the journal of
the Polish Genealogical Society of America. The article includes some general
information and a list of selected expressions likely to appear in such
letters. PGSA website address is http://www.pgsa.org
