I have a Galtech WordPoint license compatible with up to Windows XP and have installed it on Windows 8 in compatibility mode.
Everything looks like in XP except it doesn't show the translation when I right click.
It works all right in Window mode.

This happens because the UI control libraries are not updated and are not meant to work in Windows 8 as they are in XP. Although you have made it run in Windows 8, you will encounter these issues until you apply a patch that fixes this compatibility or revert back to Windows XP.
