An ultrasimple clipboard application that expects to find a French word on the clipboard and sends it for translation.

Put a shortcut to the script in a Win2K toolbar, or on the desktop if you want to use a keyboard shortcut. Then just highlight the word or phrase to be translated, copy it to the clipboard, then launch the script.

   6         data = wx.TextDataObject()
   7         wx.TheClipboard.GetData(data)
   8         text = data.GetText().strip()
   9     wx.TheClipboard.Close()
  10     if not text:
  11         wx.MessageDialog(None,"No French word specified")
  12 else:
  13     wx.MessageDialog(None,"Can't open clipboard")
  15 ShellExecute(0, None, '' % text, None, 'c:/', 0)


Unfortunately depends on the MS Windows API. -
