On-line Translation Program: Latin - English and English - Latin at Notre Dame

Yesterday, the Pastor at Our Lady of Victory in Paris, Texas, told me about an on-line translation program at Notre Dame.

It's different than other translation applications for Latin. You should have access to it.

It's called William Whitaker's Words

Since the program lives in the archives, I decided to take advantage of the desktop version.

You can also download the program http://archives.nd.edu/whitaker/wordswin.htm.

I decided to download the desktop version in case the on-line version gets link rot and disappears.

Here's a sample of what I found.

The main screen let's you put a word into a text box. I chose " animas". You can see the result below.

I found the program quite helpful for my Latin studies and to check the glossary of words attached to my prayer entries.
