I just posted this to a translators' list the other day. I don't
know if it's useful or not, though:

Wordfast - the only Translation Memory engine available for
Microsoft Word both on PC
and MAC - can now be downloaded , completely free of charge, from
the Logos Group portal,
www.logos.it, as well as from http://champollion.net

Beside conventional translation memory services, Wordfast includes
real-time terminology/typography
check. Direct compatibility is maintained with the most popular
translation memory systems available
on the market, while offering a totally transparent, open format.
All this power is packed into a single, compact Word™ template.
Wordfast is network-ready, allows
translation of Word™, Excel™, PowerPoint™ & Access™ files, directly
translates HTML/XML files
and other tagged files.
It can support Semitic languages, Cyrillic languages, as well as
Japanese and Chinese 16-bit modes.
Wordfast can also handle jumps, popups, fields, tables, bookmarks,
frames, headers/footers/notes and
many other features unfound in other packages.

Join the Wordfast discussion group and use the hotline to  find out
more about it!

Here was one reply:

There was an interesting  foray into the world of Wordfast on the
JAT list
in June, so I advise you to check out the archives for the list.
Gururaj Rao's message was the first:
No fault of Gurruraj's of course, but people would appear to have
had very
mixed results.

Does anybody know of good software for making multi-language
dictionaries?  Could I use regular data-base software such as MS
Access?  Is there something better?
