Hi there
ok here is how it works when you press a key this produces a make code when you release the key this produces a break code a chip in the keyboard processes these codes to produce a scan code that is sent to the cpu the chip determines the locatiopn of the key pressed and sends that location ,together with the irq to the cpu the scan code stores it temporarly into the memory now the bios converts the scan code to the character assigned to the code thus producing a letter in a language depending on the user like english /spanish /ect ect this probably is confusing but this is how it works. hope this solves your question
best regards mike

Have microsoft office 2007 on my desktop ,why is it not possible to translate text instantly ( many languages are set normaly,but non is translating).I have vista


Though MS Office has language support for many languages all this does is provide the special characters and in some cases allows you to use a special keyboard designed for that language. It does not translate text for you.

There are free web sites that will translate text for you (translate.google.com and babelfish.com are only two). You can copy the text and paste it into a text box on the web page. You may need to indicate the languages you are translating from and to. Be forewarned, though, these free translation sites generally offer a word-for-word translation, which usually isn't a very accurate translation.

Hope this helps.

Translate Text to Other Languages in Microsoft Word 2007


The world has become a global village where you need to communicate with people of diverse cultures and languages. We come across people who speak different languages on the internet, or we need to communicate with different people in the global business market. Sometimes we need to translate business documents as everybody doesn’t speak the same language. Students might need to translate some facts as well as information e.g. the history of a specific country into their own language in order to learn about its history.
Everyone can’t have an access to a professional translator who could help them out in this matter. Due to this reason, word-processing programs are available who try to fulfill this requirement. Other than the different programs which fill this requirement, it is possible to translate text in Microsoft Word 2007. The feature to translate text in Microsoft Word 2007 can be used like any other translation program. In order to translate text in Microsoft Word 2007, we just have to use its built-in function.
Follow the given steps to translate word text into other languages:



  • Select the text you want to translate. You can type it there and then or you could paste it from somewhere. If you need to select the entire document, and if it is very lengthy, you can go back to the "edit" tab and click "select all." Or you can just highlight the entire or part of the text by clicking the left mouse button and dragging it across the text you want to highlight.

  • Click on Review button on Menu bar.

  • Click on Translate in the Review tab.

  • A task pane will appear on the right side of the document. Select which language you would like to translate into or the existing language it is in. Here is where you can select which language to translate to or from.

  • The selected or highlighted text will be translated in the lower part of the task pane. You can get the translation of the same text into different languages instantly as you choose the language under the option of "To".

If you need to translate the selected text into a language that is not included in the given list, click on Translation options and select the particular language you want.


This helpful feature to translate text in Microsoft Word is very handy. However, there is no substitute for a human professional translator as good and meaningful translation demands comprehension as well as understanding of cultural references, artistic quality and talent. So there are chances that the translation done by a computer program will lack profundity as well as meaning.

I can only find the spanish version for setting my intermatic 7 day outdoor digital timer. how can i get new insturction--in english.


Intermatic posts manuals in Spanish and English, but not every manual is available.
Here are some choices.

1) Add a comment with timer model number and I'll find manual and post link if manual is available.

2) Go to Intermatic manual page below. Use 'Find' feature on browser (click Edit > Find) to locate model number quickly on page. Manual search takes you to individual manuals or to a product page. When page comes up model numbers show in a vertical row > click model number to view drop-down menu for links to manuals.
Not every manual is available.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/instruction%20manuals.aspx

3) All else fails, use google translate. I re-wrote and posted GE yard stake manual today using translator. Enter whole sentences into translator > no need to translate word by word anymore.
http://translate.google.com/#auto'en'
Here's outdoor GE timer translated from Spanish using google translate:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15107-outdoor-timer-manual.pdf

5) Add a comment and post link where you found Spanish version of manual (as long as it's not a free-manual-with-spyware website) and I'll locate English manual if possible -or- translate manual for you, and post result next day or so.

I have just recieved a sliding table for my spindle moulder (TF 100 M). It came with instructions in German and French but not English! Is there anywhere online I can download the English version? Many...


I search for manuals all day ... geez, why don't these companies post their manuals? It's the digital age.

In the mean time, you need Google translate
http://translate.google.com/#

It IS fabelhaft (fabulous, in german) >>> I just translated a timer manual written in French and Italian
One of my dang relatives is fluent in two or three languages, and she says the translator is real good, so I believe it's a winner

Type in full sentence, and the translator will handle full sentences ... no more word by word translations
