Type in English, Print in Spanish
Electronic Translation Software has introduced a software package designed just for educators and administrators who wish to improve educator-parent communication with non-native English speakers.
With a single keystroke, documents created in English are translated, and can then be printed out in Spanish.
Created for schools, the software has a special dictionary with thousands of terms and phrases in Spanish pertaining to categorical programs, special education, social services, classroom, parent involvement, nutrition, health care and school administration. This improves first-draft translation quality, reducing editing.
One need not be bilingual to use it and 80% accurate translation at300+ words per minute is claimed. Electronic Translation Software, Costa Mesa, CA, (714) 751-7452, WM
