      The Microsoft Captions Language Interface Pack (CLIP) is a simple language translation solution that uses tooltip captions to display results. Use CLIP as a language aid, to see translations in your own dialect, update results in your own native tongue or maybe use it as a learning tool?

      CLIP is designed to enable and support indigenous languages and native dialects and is the result of the close collaboration between Microsoft and local communities. Users will be able to download multiple languages, switching target translations quickly and easily.

      To use, simply move your mouse around the screen and halt briefly over any text you want translated. Users can add their own vernacular translation and colloquialisms or copy & paste the results.

      Translations are available between the following languages: English & Scottish Gaelic. More CLIP languages are available for download here.

      To add or edit translations, use the CLIP window and click on the down arrow in the results pane. To access the CLIP window for your selected source text, press the CLIP ‘Window Key + Hot-key’. You may then need to move the cursor around a little to bring-up the selection menu. Users can copy translation results by using the Copy menu and pasting into other documents.
      To temporarily stop or start CLIP, double-click on the system tray icon or use Options to set startup defaults. Use Exit to shutdown CLIP.
