Most useful tool for translators

Search and Replace, an unassuming utility program from Funduc software, must surely be one of the most useful tool for a translator.

For instance, right now I'm verify the translation of some software against a glossary and the translation memory provided by the customer, and against the Microsft glossaries.
By saving the customer glossary and translation memory to txt format, I'm able to do all my searches on the reference material using Search and Replace.

Since it supports regular expressions, I'm able to create complicated searches, such as for words followed on the same string by a certain different word, or words not followed by another on the same string, etc.

Very useful, and highly recommended.
