Thank you. Older translations are often less accurate than the newer. I find it helpful when a translation is not too paraphrastic and is literal enough (as are many translations from the Loeb Classical Library), since it is easier to match it to the Greek text.
Indeed, the editorial philosophy of the Loeb series is to be readable and avoid literalness, since those who care about the literal words are able to consult the facing Greek/Latin text.

I have tried to use ugarit.ialigner.com to automatically align a Greek excerpt (copied from TLG) with a long English translation to find the rendering of that excerpt in the English translation. The website says that access is denied. There is no help page explaining how to use the alignment program. Does anyone know how to use automatic alignment of texts on the website?
