    Translate -- Convert an English string into narrator device phonemes.

    rtnCode = Translate(inString, inLength, outBuffer, outLength)
    D0                  A0        D0        A1         D1

    LONG Translate( STRPTR inString, LONG inLength, STRPTR outBuffer,
                    LONG outlen );

    The translate function converts an English string into
    a string of phonetic codes suitable as input to the
    narrator device.

    inString  - pointer to English string
    inLength  - length of English string
    outBuffer - a char array which will hold the phonetic codes
    outLength - the length of the output array

    rtnCode - zero if no error has occured.
              The only error that can occur is overflowing the outBuffer.
              If Translate() determines that an overflow will occur, it
              will stop the translation at a word boundary before the
              overflow happens.  If this occurs, rtnCode will be a
              negative number whose absolute value indicates where in
              inString Translate() stopped.  The user can then use the
              offset -rtnCode from the beginning of inString in a
              subsequent Translate() call to continue the translation.
