Here's what one Eclipse user had to say about "Translation Magic"...


"Needless to say, switiching to a completely different program was a little overwhelming.  Then I learned about "Translation Magic."  It has somewhere around 900 conflicts, etc. programmed into it.  I went through the video and WOW!!!!  I got over a 9(% translation rate with my conflicts all resolving the right way.  I especially love the Number conflicts and Echo conflicts.  It saves so much time in Editing.  Thanks."
