hot key combinations from windows apps?

    Hi, I've read in the product feature descriptions that information can be copy-and-pasted or drag'n'dropped between mac and windows applications.

    Is it also possible to pass information via a "hot key" combination to a windows app using Parallels? ... maybe with the help of another 'automation' program on the mac?

    Background: I use specialist language dictionaries on the PC (Langenscheidt e-dictionaries, demo version download) that use a hotkey to copy a word marked in a program (e.g. MS-Word) and pass it through to the dictionary look-up function. As there are very few OS-X applications in this field, this is one of the few things holding me back from making a switch.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Many thanks
