Office Text Language Translator

      This invention provides the ability to translate OFFICE Mail
and Document Text to the users' native language which allows users to
effectively communicate with OFFICE user's in other countries.

      Currently, there is not an on-line Office feature which
provides an option that would enable users from foreign countries to
convert OFFICE Mail and Document text to their native language.  With
the OFFICE language text translator application, users will have the
ability to convert OFFICE Mail and Document text to their native
language.

The application will be invoked by one of two methods:

o   Keystroke

o   Touch Screen

      When the application is invoked options will be available to
convert the text to whatever language is applicable.  The conversion
process can be accomplished by depressing the appropriate PF KEY or
by using the Touch Screen feature.

This application will function in most OFFICE platforms

o   MVS

o   VM

o   AS/400

o   OS/2

and will effectively improve OFFICE communications for users in
foreign countries.
