Recently I saw a reference in PCA to "Translution" as an add-in for Outlook.

The lite version is free.

Has anyone used this, and if so, do you have any comments.

is that machine translations work best on short, sharp, grammatically-correct sentences. I haven't used Translution, but I'm sure that if you stick to that formula you'll find that it will handle things adequately. Don't expect miracles. The more complex your text, the less readable the translation.

Don't use colloquialisms, or complicated technical language and you'll be fine.

It seems the "Lite" version only translates e-mails, not documents, web pages ot attachments, so it's of very limited use.

Babelfish click here is adequate for most people.

Like the FE says, these things translate word for word (with some idioms) so languages with a different grammar and word order to the one being translated from can be quite difficult to understand unless you have a basic knowledge in the language.
