    A while ago I noticed my translation widget being not only graphically but functionally FUBAR.

    I'm too lazy to dig up my Mac OS X DVD and use Pacifist, so...

    Could someone post their Translation.widget file? Hopefully you're on the latest version of Tiger, 10.4.7.

    It should be located in Computer > Library > Widgets

    Thanks! :)

    Hmm it doesn't seem to have fixed the problem.

    Are there preference files for widgets? What other files/settings could be affecting it?

    It doesn't work at all. I can click on the Translate From: menu but the Translate To: menu always says "undefined" and when I click on it it gives me a list with one option: English.

    Also there are some graphical screwups and the little info icon in the lower right corner doesn't work. It won't flip around to show the Systran logo. Instead the Systran logo is partially visible constantly.

    :confused:

    Yes.

    Look for ~/Library/Preferences/widget-com.apple.widget.whatever.plist. Trash/move/rename and restart (log out and back in).
