Dear list members,

Attached to this mail, an updated version of gtranslate.el (bug fixes mainly).
AFAIK, it works only with GNU Emacs 23.x

For more featured packages and Xemacs users considers other solutions:
git clone git://

Thanks for pointing out. Although, I follow the free software movement
for a hand of years already, I mistook. Shame on me :-(

I totally, agree.
Without being paranoid, I much prefer to use dictionaries located on
my server or on my desktops.
However, for bulk  translations - i.e. full sentences - it is currently
difficult to do otherwise.
Although overkill and probably memory intensive, I wish I could run such
a service on my own machines.
