Re: Online translator deepl.com now translates complete word-documents for free

From my tests so far, Deepl comes in two versions. Deepl Translator is free, does not preserve formatting nor links, but does a good job of text translation in files of up to about 75kB. Have not checked al the available languages yet. The pay for version, Deepl Pro, about $US24 per 1,000,000 charac...

I too used Puppy for a while, it is an interesting Linux variant. In fact, I still have Puppy loaded and use it to make grub menus that my ageing eyes ca...

Re: Online translator deepl.com now translates complete word-documents for free

deepl looks very interesting. Just tried translating from English to German, then translated that result back to English. Only one phrase where it erred, which is better than Googletranslate. Will do more tests later today and see how it copes with the MX Manual. Having to use docx is not my prefere...

Re: newbie help with software install

I thought that ClamAV did scan. Does it not? Please enlighten me. ClamAV only scans when you type the proper Gibberish in the terminal to make it scan since ClamAV is a command line program. The G.U.I. version is called ClamTK which you can do manual scans or set it up for automatic daily scans but...

Re: newbie help with software install
