#1: Please note that MYDIC.TXT must be stored in the default directory ...\Documents.
#3: You have to store that script (or "clip" in NT-terminology) in a clipbook. For an efficient use of NT you will have to become acquainted with clips anyway. For further details, please have a look at "Help | How to... | Create Clipbook Libraries".
BTW: Of course, my "engine" wasn't meant for complete translations. It was derived from further developed clips I use for indexing text databases (creating descriptors, thesaurus, stop-words, standardizing terminology etc). Certainly, it could be used for tagging words.
In my view, the advantage over solutions based on user dictionaries and autoreplace is:
1. you have a better control of the vocabulary since it is stored in a normal TXT file.
2. You can use Regular Expressions which offer an approach to dealing with flexion forms, synonyms etc (and even word tagging).
