Web Translator is a powerful application that lets you quickly and easily translate any text and webpage.
There are quite a lot of things to appreciate about this tool. One of them is the support for translating to and from a truly impressively large number of languages (more than 50). Another great feature provided by this application is its ability to translate entire websites. It includes a simple web browser that lets you load any website and see a version of that website translated in the language of your choice. Last but not least, its simple and intuitive interface makes this tool suitable for any kind of users, including complete novices. It makes it easy to quickly translate text of any size and of any kind, may they be letters, documents, e-mails, and so on.
The translations are performed with the help of popular free online translation services (“servers”) such as Google Translate, Dictionary.com, or Babel Fish. Therefore the accuracy of the translations depends on these engines and can vary from very accurate ones to “less successful” ones. A feature that might seem less important, but, in my opinion, is of great help, is the fact that this tool also provides a Unicode viewer. The Unicode viewing capabilities allow translating to non-Latin languages without having compatibility issues created by the displaying of the special characters specific to these languages.
To my mind, anyone in need of a handy translation tool should take advantage of the free 15-day trial period of this application and convince themselves of how useful Web Translator can be.
