Subject: Software for helping translators

Hello,

I would like to compile a list of software that would be useful for
translators, especially concerning English, French and Dutch. Of course
information for any language is welcomed. I'm thinking of the following
categories:
- electronic dictionaries
- software for managing word-lists for specialised fields
- electronic thesauri
- (half-)automatic translation software
- OCR software
- spelling corrections
- comparing two versions of a document
- annotating software

Please e-mail to me directly if you know about such software, or any
software that translators might find useful. I'll summarize to the list.
It would be most convenient to use the 'form' below.

Does anyone know of an email address for Michael Fortescue?

Does anyone know of an email, or a snail mail, address for Knut

Thanks, Mary Tait

Message 3: Query: German diminutive phonology

From: <Alexis_Manaster_RamerMTS.cc.Wayne.edu>
Subject: Query: German diminutive phonology

I am writing a note on the current debate concerning the German
diminutive suffix -chen, and I thought I would ask for any
judgements from those fluent in German whether words like
riechen or Griechen rhyme with diminutive forms like Viehchen
or Briechen. They don't seem to rhyme for me, but then I am
FAAAAAAAAAAAAAR from fluent in German.
