Top Ten Free Translation Tools

The top ten free online language translation tools.
The Top Ten
1 Google Translate

I think it is the best out there. Sometimes people talk about mistakes but I have noticed that some people have mistakes in their mother toungue and spelling and makes the application less accurate when translating.

Can translate to more languages than the others. The translation itself looks to be more correct in my language, Norwegian, than the competitors that offer Norwegian

No machine translation can ever be 100% accurate, but Google delivers the closest results overall.

2 Bing Translator

First time using. It must add Urdu as well because it is language of more than 1 Billion people on earth. But in other cases it looks very Good. At least in sense of Sentence structure and composition.

I've been inputting the same phrase on various websites. So far I've found and Bing to be the best (I looked after finding some nonsense on Google). Bing has a thumbs up/down feature which I find very convenient and, hopefully, they act on it.

Just WOW. Almost completely correct translations. FAR more better than the other translating machines out there. *cough* Google Translate *cough*.

Prompt online-translator is not always working but it makes the best or the most correct translations of any language it offers. I m looking for another one like that but not even one other translator can reach that level of correct translation

Good tool language wise but screen is stuffy.

5 Reverso

Reverse is good because it can translate any language to the other


This is a great online translation site which I have ever visited. What is more, no any adds on this site. I am sure that at least 4 out 5 will vote on this site, if they give it a try to use it.

What I like most is that it has no adds and translations are very close the their real meanings.

Woow that is very cheering and practical website for free translation.

8 DeepL Translator

I thoroughly recommend this programme. It is the best I've used to date. It has a high success rate regarding the understanding of sentence contexts and articles. Although it does make occassional blunders, these are quite rare. I use it for translating psychology articles into German and English and vice-versa. One little peice of advice though, do not overdo it with the length of larger articles. Rather, translate these bit by bit. An excellent programme that has saved my grey matter many a time.


I'm using Linguee every time I can't choose the right translation with normal online dictionaries. Linguee gives a context, which is perfect to avoid any mistake in your translation. You don't always have the proper word you looked for, but there are always results.
Very good at least for French, English, Spanish and German. There also is a free app for smart phones.
It gives many different meanings and examples of sentences. It is not set to translate entire sentences or texts and will give each word separately but if you put a little effort in searching and connecting things to one another it is very handy.


This deserves to be #1. It is the site that helped me through my foreign language classes, the site that taught me so much. Unlike other sites, it gives context of the words you search so that you know how to sort through words that are spelled the same but used/mean different things. (ex., lap can mean running, the way a dog drinks, a distance, or a leg seat) For some languages, it also has verb conjugations, which is the best thing ever! It gives pronounciations! It knows what you mean when you type in a conjugated verb! WORD REFERENCE IS THE BEST!

The Contenders

Great site. I though it was in Turkish at first sight, but then I realised that it also has English version, which is fantastic and great to use.

This is the most popular online translator website in Turkey. I suggest you should add it to your list.

12 Ginger Translate
13 Tradukka
14 BabelXL
15 Babylon-Software

I'm surprised this hasn't come up yet.

Babylon is the leading online translation software in the market as of today and can translate from over 70+ languages in a matter of seconds!

When you have a software like this for free its really silly using anything else

16 MyMemory
17 Yandex Translator

Being a Russian site, this should be the best Russian translation service. I have also found it translates Eastern European languages well too.


Free text and voice translation site in 51 languages.

Voice translator sounds great!

Does the job but the interface is not very appealing.
