And yet, QTranslate v6.3.1.zip portable downloads without a hitch.

That'll teach you even thinking about using an installer...;-)

I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

Just teasing, of course...;-)

The latest version of TheSage is 6.4.1806. The history can be found here- http://www.sequencepublishing.com/_files/_thesage_pad/ChangeLog.txt

AndTheWolf on 2016-03-14 23:15

TheSage is now at 6.10.1816. Since your download link points to that version via TheSage home page you might as well update the entry here to reflect the current version number.

I might have paid for the advanced options if there was some indication as to what they are!!

I obtained Lingoes dictionaries by looking up an older version, such as "Lingoes Translator 2.8.1 + Dictionaries". I used
http://uploading.com/files/thankyou/ca64ece4/Lingoes.Translator.and.Dictionaries.part1.rar & http://uploading.com/files/thankyou/92e1656f/Lingoes.Translator.and.Dictionaries.part2.rar . I used 7-zip to unzip the files (unzip "part1" and you will unzip the whole file). The dictionaries are found in the folder "dictionaries". A list is found at http://download-pedia.com/?a=f&b=OgRWJSMhCGcRWjkWCgJZUAcoSyolXA!! , although the links did not seem to work. Also, if you try to download the ".ld2" files from the Lingoes website, I did get a download window sometimes from "Download from Dbank" if I left clicked all over the first screen that came up about 100 times. Every now and then you will get a series of downloads from "Download from SkyDrive", but only on certain dictionary downloads.

The latest version of Lingoes is 2.9.2- http://www.lingoes.net/en/translator/download.htm
However I would like to ask- is there a way to block the annoying ads? I would rather stop using Lingoes than tolerating the obtrusive ads Lingoes spews out at every search.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)
