Translate from english to french


I wrote a script to convert a given word from English to French.

But I am not able to figure out what I am missing here.

I am not able to get the translated word

Below is my script:

for i in $*
 word="echo $word $i"

 cat << file1
          1.From English to French
           2. Quit

read input

case $input in
  1. dict=$French;;
   2. echo"Not successful"

echo $word| grep -i "^$word|[^a-z,0-9].*$" $dict

if [ $? != 0 ]
    echo "word not in dict"
    echo "word found"

I would suggest you to use set -x while running the script, so that you could capture what are you missing really! Smilie
