|To try the program out, just type some Latin into the Latin
box, and press the [Translate] button. It will
take the contents of the top box and run them through the dictionary and
... and this is what you get.
The right pane contains the translation. QuickLatin cannot do a
perfect job of this, so what you get is its best effort. In this
case it has made a very decent effort, but even so it needs a little work
to turn into real English. More often the words will not make sense
without more work.
To help you in this, the grammar box contains the parsing information
for each word. Notice the cursor over 'sano' in the Latin pane:
that's the word that will be displayed in the bottom pane.
Sometimes there is more parsing information than will fit in the
box. In this case, the middle pane becomes scrollable. Of
course to scroll it means moving the cursor out of the top pane, so you
must hold down the shift key so you don't change the word being
displayed. (If you forget, the status bar at the bottom reminds
The grammar box contains fairly abbreviated information. However
you can get some information on the meaning by holding the cursor over the
abbreviation in question...
