Lingoes V2.7.5 doesn't start on Windows 7 ?

Comment by ITFan
about Lingoes · Aug 2011 · Helpful Not helpful

I just download Lingoes V2.7.5 (newest version so far) from there. After the installation, it launchs Lingoes.exe but it takes forever to start. By the way, I can't end lingoes.exe in Task Manager either, always get error process id isn't available.
Anyone has the similar problem ?

My favorite daily translation tool is the portable version of Lingoes Translator (1) on a synced SugarSync Folder
After installation (many languages) it works with individually downloadable and selectable dictionaries or online translation services. I like it very much, that I get a quick translation of a text, if I copy it in the clipboard. This is really very comfortable.
The portable version is ideal for use on my Sugarsync folders, which are synchronized on my 2 computers (office and private).
(1) http://www.lingoes.net/en/translator/download.htm

SugarSync also available for WM, as a portable-app and with free 2.5-10 GB instead only 2GB
SugarSync has 3 advantages in comparison with other online-memory services:
(A)
Link to the download of the portable app:
http://www.portable.bg/en/component/search/Sugarsync/?ordering=&searchphrase=all
The portable SugarSync-app should be able to run even on a computer, where you do not have administrator rights
for the installation procedure, e.g. to run from a USB-memory-stick
(B)
With the following Bonus-Registration link you start SugarSync (only a few weeks) with 2.5 GB instead normally only 2.0 GB:
http://bit.ly/bxgp6f and you can reach a maximum of 10GB and more for free usage.
(C) SugarSync is also available for Windows Mobile devices. This is an advantage in comparison with Dropbox or SpiderOak,
which have no Windows Mobile versions to sync folders from the WM-device with your desktop computers.

I made a short test translation from german to english with 4 online translation products:

(a) http://translate.google.com
(b) http://translator.vndv.com/
(c) http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate_txt
(d) PROMPT Translator:
http://www.online-translator.com/Default.aspx/Text?prmtlang=en
(e) http://alternativeto.net/desktop/lingoes-translator-2/

My personal impression: until last year I used Google Translate.
But PROMPT Translator and Babelfish had better translation results.

Because of this since many month I use the PROMPT Translator almost every day as my standard translator.

Today I discovered Lingoes Translator: http://alternativeto.net/desktop/lingoes-translator-2/
After installation (many languages) it works with individually downloadable and selectable dictionaries or online translation services. I like it very much, that I get a quick translation of a text, if I copy it in the clipboard. This is really very comfortable.
