Dear Linguists,

Anybody know about finding and loading a French/English online
dictionary and/or glossary into Wordfast translation software?
Ideally, I would like to find a free compatible FR-Eng dictionary like
Robert Collins online, and hook it up to my Wordfast software. But
how? Thanks!! Best regards, Joce

A friend of mine is a dramaturge for our local repertory theater. 
They're getting ready to perform "1776", and she asked me about 
dialects spoken in the American South at the time of the revolution. 
Does anyone know about these things? I'll be happy to post a summary.
