I have already extensively written about nice applications able to translate everything you want. You may want to read these articles of mine on how to translate everything for free, how to translate Office documents and emails in any language and how to translate the emails you get in Gmail in any language. However, as usual, Google is about to take the translator application world to the next level thanks to its new Google translator page! As a matter of fact, Google has recently rolled out a new web translation service called Google Translator Toolkit able to translate everything you wish. The main feature of this interesting website is the ability to translate files having different extensions by uploading them into Google.

Google Translator Toolkit is a great free translation web page for those people who wish to translate everything in a matter of a few seconds. Here are its most important features:

  • You can upload whole file to translate. Different files extensions are accepted such as:
  • HTML (.html)
    Microsoft Word (.doc)
    OpenDocument Text (.odt)
    Plain Text (.txt)
    Rich Text (.rtf)

  • You can decide to share what you translate.
  • You can translate a webpage just by typing its web address in the translator blank field.
  • You can even translate Wikipedia articles thanks to a special section dedicated to the world’s most famous encyclopedia.
  • You can also translate Knol pages.
  • You can publish translations to Wikipedia™ or Knol.
  • You can search other translations made by other people.
  • You can collaborate with other people!

If you want to know more, visit this Google webpage. You need to register to use the service, but it is worth, believe me!

    Thanks for your comment, Hugo. Of course, if you are willing to pay you will get a more valuable service. This is a rule which is true with almost all sides of our life. If instead you want to know the menaing of a foreign sentence without spending a dime, this Google service provides an excellent service. As a general rule, you are right, Online traslator tools are not very accurate but, well it depends on what you are looking for…

    am not sure it will take the translation translator application world to the new level, as you said. As a translator I can tell that translation memory software is not new at all. Personally, I don’t recommend using machine translation as a basis for a translation, since the quality is very low. You’ll get much better results using traditional, yet professional, human translator. There are services on the web (like OneHourTranslation.com) which offer professional translation services, using real translators.
