What is Lion?
Lion allows you to send a query to the German-English, -French, -Spanish and -Italian LEO dictionaries (Chinese is currently not supported) with a click of your mouse from almost all MS Windows applications. This distinguishes Lion from other toolbars which are browser-restricted. With another click of your mouse you can have the search term in your document replaced by any of the suggested translations from LEO's results table.
I want to use it. What do I have to do?
You can download Lion from the programmer's website and test it for a trial period of 30 days. If you want to use Lion for an unlimited period you have to register to obtain a licence key (see below). For details please read the Lion user guide. In the current version, Lion is available in German and English.
Lion is free to non-commercial users; commercial customers and research institutions are required to pay a licence fee. For details please read the section Lizenzen für Firmenkunden und Forschungseinrichtungen of the Lion user guide.
When registering to obtain a licence key, please note down your login name for future reference as you will need it should you forget or lose your license key. The previous link to the Lion user guide also contains information about how you can look up your license key.
We appeal to our users' honesty (also in the name of the developer Th. Schleinzer ) to get in touch with us if they are liable to pay the fee, as the costs involved in developing and maintaining Lion are quite considerable.
