 Here’s what one Eclipse user had to say about “Translation Magic”

After 13 years of being on the same software, I finally switched to Eclipse; and I have been very happy with the program.

Needless to say, switching to a completely different program was a little overwhelming.  Then I learned about “Translation Magic.”  It has somewhere around 900 conflicts, etc. programmed into it.  I went through the video and WOW!!!!  I got over a 99% translation rate with my conflicts all resolving the right way.  I especially love the Number conflicts and Echo conflicts.  It saves so much time in editing. Thanks.
