Editors' review

Occasionally we come across a program that has the potential to be really great but is ruined by a terrible interface. LEC Translate DotNet is one such program. This suite of translation utilities allows users multiple ways to translate text on their computers, but the way the program is laid out makes it utterly frustrating to use.

The program is composed of five different utilities, ClipTrans, FileTrans, LogoTrans, and MirrorTrans. Do you have any idea what any of these do? Neither did we. And opening each one revealed interfaces with absolutely no direction. The only way to figure out what each one did was to visit all five of the online Help files. Once we finally figured out what each utility did, we gave them a try, with mixed results. ClipTrans, for example, automatically translates any text that is copied into the clipboard. This worked smoothly, but some of the very simple words that we used in the test text didn't translate at all. FileTrans allegedly translates entire files, but when we tried it the file that was supposed to contain the results was empty. MirrorTrans translates entire windows, but it doesn't seem to work with Firefox. LogoTrans, which translates text as you type into its box, was the only one that didn't give us trouble.

LEC Translate DotNet has a seven-day trial period, which is barely enough time to get comfortable with its features. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program; although it has many functions, it's not worth the time it takes to figure out how to use it.
