Well . . . that certainly did not have the desired results. Previously Sherlock translation was inoperative, now it is no longer visible, though on restart a new <com.apple.Sherlock.plist> is loaded to my account's Library/Preferences folder.
Now what I REALLY want to do is to USE Sherlock Translation AND NOT a dashboard widget. It is my feeling that Sherlock is (was) better than Dashboard. How can i get SHERLOCK TRANSLATION back?
Here's how to fix Sherlock in Tiger -
Go to your user Library/Caches/Sherlock folder.
Open the Web Foundation folder.
Drag the contents to the trash.
Close that folder, and Get Info on the Web foundations folder. Click an X in the Locked box.
Now try Sherlock - you will find it back to normal... translation certainly works again for me...
