Translation Tool: IntelliWebSearch

I’ve come across a helpful translation tool called IntelliWebSearch that can accelerate your translation speed.  It allows you to create keyboard shortcuts for repetitive web searches.  For example, I’ve created a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I) to automatically initiate an image search using whatever text is currently selected as the query string.  The more time consuming alternative would be to copy the query string from your document, switch to your browser, navigate to the image search page, paste the query string, and hit enter.  If you find yourself searching the web a lot during a translation job, this tool is for you!  Kudos to the developer: Michael Farrell.  There are dozens of preconfigured search engines and online dictionaries.  You can tweak them as needed or add your own.


Mr. Farrell has created some explanatory videos for IntelliWebSearch:
