       freespeak — GNOME frontend to online translator engines.


       freespeak  [--version]  [-h, --help]


       With  FreeSpeak  you  can  translate  text  and  web pages using online
       translation engines.

       To perform a translation select your translator  of  choice.  Then  you
       select  the  languages  through  which you wish to translate your data.
       Finally press the "Translate" button.

       You can translate both text  and  web  pages.  Some  translators  don’t
       support  both  modes so it may happen that your preferred translator is
       not present in the drop down list.

       You can tune all FreeSpeak settings in the preferences dialog.

       Copy to clipboard
              Copy the translated data to the clipboard once  the  translation
              is complete.

       Paste from clipboard
              Paste data to be translated, from the clipboard to the GUI. This
              only happens when you open a new translation.  If you are trying
              to  perform  a  web  page  translation  and the clipboard is not
              holding a valid URL, FreeSpeak is not going to paste it  in  the
              URL entry.

       Default translator
              The  translator to use every time you open a new translation. It
              will be set in the drop down list only if the  translation  mode
              you requested is supported by the translator you chose.

       Key bindings
              Set   several   desktop-wide   key   bindings  for  doing  quick
              translation operations.
