Looking for a Computer Aided Translating software for SUSE Linux 9.3


I've got SUSE Linux 9.3 and need a computer aided translating tool - I'm an English-Polish translator.
Thanks for any hints!

Here is a link for "Margot". I found it by using Google. However, the Margo program needs to be on line. There is a translators editor mentioned also, and so I thought you might be interested.

There may also be a Konqueror babel fish plug-in that employs the AltaVista web site translation service. Of course as a translator, you realize that this will only provide a rough translation.

lol! At least it still meant something though. You wouldn't believ what rubbish some web based translaters spit out.
Anything non-web-based?

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with any any stand-alone translation programs. You may need to google for that. There may be some Lisp based experimental programs. However because a translation depends so much on context, mechanical translation may still be in the realm of AI research. You may try googling for "emacs natural language translation". Also, give the babel-fish web service a try at least, to see if it is good enough (most of the time). Other terms to search for are "NLT", "Natural Language Translation", "NLP", "Natural Language Processing".

Perhaps you may find a web site with a web interface to try it out, with the source being available of the program performing the translation. There may also be college papers written on the subject. Someone's master thesis may include URLs to their source code.

A bit of googling brought up the following:

Translution

gtranslator

omegat

Ooxlate
(Also have a look at the other links at http://translatewrite.com/ as it looks very interesting)

I haven't tried any of them, just browsed a couple of web-sites. Please let me know if you find any of them suits your purposes as I am very interested to know.
