TranslateIt! for Mac OS X gets new Text Translate tool

TranslateIt! for Mac ( — a multilingual dictionary that allows looking up words on the fly — has been updated. There’s a new Text Translation tool. Also, German Polish and French localization has been updated.

With TranslateIt!, you hover the pointer over an unfamiliar word (in any Cocoa Aapplication), and you will see its translation in a pop-up window. It comes with several free dictionaries for a large number of languages. TranslateIt! supports translation from/to any language (corresponding dictionaries must be installed), English sounds (it contains over 17,000 English words pronunciations) and printing of flash cards.

The software also comes with a Words Quiz (a game for learning new words), a built-in DictBuilder utility for creating custom dictionaries and a multilingual user interface. TranslateIt! for Mac is distributed as shareware (US$35 for a one-year license, $79 for a lifetime license); a 20-day demo version is available for download.
