Quite simply, Clue is an electronic dictionary that will let you look
up words in one language and see translations to another. You can also
copy words from Clue into other programs. There are Clue dictionaries
for several different languages and in varieties ranging from simple
dictionaries to specialized technical, economic and medical
All dictionaries work in exactly the same way; a single Clue program
can access as many dictionaries as you like. Which dictionary is to be
used is something you can choose very simply from a menu listing all
the dictionaries you have installed. You can also switch from
dictionary to dictionary by pressing the tab key. By pressing tab +
shift you can return to the dictionary you used last.
Clue is extremely user-friendly and you will very rarely need to use
the help menu. However, it may be useful to take a look as you may
find that the program has more capabilities than you previously
The words that you look up in Clue can be copied quickly to other
Windows programs you are working in simultaneously simply by double-
clicking on the word.
You can look words up quickly in Clue. Your use of language will
improve by using Clue every time you are in doubt about a translation
of a word.
