I was considering the PrePub: The Works of Augustus M. Toplady, but in previewing some pages I see where he uses a lot of Latin. I do not know the Latin language.  Usually through the context I am able to discern what the Latin means but it would be nice to be able to translate it from within Logos. Any suggestions for us uneducated  folks out here. Maybe Logos already can do this?

Thanks in advance - Mike

when all else fails, William Whitaker wrote a program I found years ago called "words" which works at the commandline.  At one time I gave it quite a workout.

You can find it at the following web address: users.erols.com/whitaker/words.htm

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Rosie Perera:

I purchased that Collins one to look up words. Its not very deep, and won't much help you "translate" something, but for me, it helps me out sometimes when a Latin word is used in one of the many resources I use.

I'd love

Rosie Perera:
but can't afford that kind of work for the kinds of use I'd currently make of it.
