HOW TO: Control Text Selection Behaviour
You can select text in Freda by long-tapping/right clicking, and then dragging the selection handles.

If you want to make it easier to select text, you can change the behaviour of the drag gesture so that, instead of moving the page, it will select text; that is the 'swipe action' option at the top of the controls page.

Freda's normal action on selected text, when the text is tapped, is to pop up a menu, offering various options - highlight, bookmark, find, copy, etc.  If you want Freda to always perform the same action, you can make this happen by using the controls ribbon that pops up at the top of the screen, when ... is tapped.  The right-most item on the controls ribbon shows what Freda does with selected text - tap that item, and you can change its behaviour.

In this video, you can see how to do this, and set Freda up so that every time you select a piece of text, a window will pop up, showing that text translated into German.
