SYSTRAN Standard 5.0 Features

Graphical User Interface (GUI) components

We only list the features specific to the components. Size limitations depend on the product and component and are listed separately.

Supported formats depend on the component

  • Native support: TXT, RTF, HTML, XHTML.
  • Non-native support: DOC, XLS, PPT (through HTML, was through RTF in V4; the main impact is speed as the conversion to HTML is faster), and PDF (new, through Scansoft PDF converter).
  • The SYSTRAN Toolbar interface now includes two drop-down lists (1 for source and 1 for target) instead of only one (for the language pair i.e. both source and target). The target languages are adapted automatically depending on the source language.

    SYSTRAN Clipboard Taskbar (SCT)

    SCT translates any written text, once it has been copied to the Windows Clipboard.

    SYSTRAN Toolbar

    Common features

    Internet Explorer plugin

    Comments : Unless there is a good technical reason for the domain restriction in fluid navigation, the restriction should be removed or at least become an option. It will be possible to disable fluid navigation.

    Microsoft Word plugin

    Microsoft Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint plugins

    Nothing specific except PowerPoint, where part of the document can be translated (same behavior as Word).

    Comments: The Outlook plugin is NOT for Outlook Express but for the full-fledged Outlook which is part of the Microsoft Office suite.


    PDF Translator

    PDF support will be provided using Scansoft’s PDF Converter. Translates PDF documents and displays the translation in Microsoft Word. Scansoft provide an item in the contextual menu (right-click), we will probably provide do the same. So when right-clicking on a PDF the user will open it in Word (convert PDF to RTF) and then use the Word plugin to translate that PDF.

    Comments: We do not support PDF Converter 2.0.

    We will have the same restrictions as Scansoft’s PDF Converter (i.e. support of simple types of PDF).

    PDF can be imported in Word or STPM, and also translated in IE or SMTU.

    SYSTRAN Dictionary Manager (SDM)

    Level 1 features

    SDM is limited to the edition of ONE UD per monodirectional LP, the name of which is not defined.

    Level 2 features

    The following features are available, in addition to the Level 1 features of SDM:

    Level 3 features

    The following features are available, in addition to the Level 1&2 features of SDM:

    Comments: Lookup operators are used in a regular UD and are either typed like “*<NUMBER>”, or using a drop-down list. A menu option allows to switch between an icon display and a textual display.

    SYSTRAN Translation Project Manager (STPM)

    Level 1 features

    Comments: We talk about “import” not support because the only native format in STPM is the “.stp”.

    Level 2 features

    The following features are available, in addition to the Level 1 features of STPM:



    System requirements


    Intel Pentium or compatible, 233 MHz minimum


    128 Mb minimum

    Disk space

    80 Mb minimum per language pair (bidirectional)


    Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 and up

    Operating System Microsoft Windows 98
      Second Edition Microsoft Windows Millennium
      Microsoft Windows NT 4 Service Pack 6 and up
      Microsoft Windows 2000
      Microsoft Windows XP
      NEW: Microsoft Windows 2003
    Microsoft Office Microsoft Office 97 – restricted (V4-like)
      Microsoft Office 2000
      Microsoft Office XP
      NEW: Microsoft Office 2003


    RAM and disk space will need to be validated during tests. Also exactly which products require Office, whether it is ALL office or only Word.

    Certain features, in particular UD compilation will depend on available RAM (the larger the UD, the more RAM is needed) and CPU.

    Translation speed is proportional to CPU speed (ie translation on 1GHz is twice as fast as on a 500MHz).

    Windows 98 support has been dropped by Microsoft as of December 2003.

    Office 97 support is kept even if does not change for V4, mostly for physical distribution needs in France (impossible to reference 2 versions). As of March 2003, Gartner estimated Office 97 deployment to 30%.
