NOTE: In order to edit any Hebrew translations, you will require an external Hebrew word processor (such as Dagesh or the Hebrew version of Microsoft Word, or Hebrew enable Windows). However, even if you don't have a Hebrew word processor and are not using Hebrew Windows, you can still use Targumatik, because it has a unique Hebrew typewriter included in the English Windows version, and if you use a Hebrew font (such as Elronet) in your Windows word processor, you will see the Hebrew in the word processor.
