Maybe you like traveling or understanding the meaning of a foreign language is part of your job. The good news is that, there are a lot of options online to help you easily understand a foreign language so you do not sound silly or use the wrong word when all you meant to just say was simply ‘how are you doing’?
Here are the 3 language translator tools on the internet i use and a little overview of why you need to look at these tools for your translation needs.
The most popular language translator tool on the world wide web currently is Google Translate. Thought not perfect, it currently supports over 40 languages, and makes language detection seamless with Google’s auto-detection feature. With Google translate, you can translate entire web pages, documents and manuscripts with a click of a button. With Google being the king of the web, Google translate easily integrates with other popular Google products such as Chrome and Android.
Android has a built-in translator feature that can be used to translate web pages and social media such as tweets. Personally, I use Google translate when i travel.
Bing Translator is part of the Microsoft family, and similar to Google’s android, is built into the Windows mobile phone and offers a free API for developers to integrate into their platforms. Bing also supports over 40 languages with auto-detection built-in as well.
Two of the best features of Bing Language Translator is the Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and the text-recognition features that allows the Windows Phone to detect unrecognizable text (even in different character format), and translate instantaneously for the user.
Linguee is a translation dictionary you can use to translate individual words as opposed to entire web pages and documents. If you need to further understand a word in a different language, then Linguee should be your go to dictionary.
Linguee comes with text to voice feature that tells you the exact pronunciation of the word in the language you are searching for.
