Top Ten Free Translation Tools

The top ten free online language translation tools.

The Top Ten

1 Google Translate

It is quick, but not always grammatically correct

English to German Translation very inaccurate, sentence structure based on English, grammatically incorrect - generally poor translation. The same goes for English to Dutch. Personally, I feel there is too much editing needed. It is not a translation tool I would use.

This website is so wrong its not even funny it should definitely not the number one I have found by farr

It's pretty awful

2 Bing Translator

One of the best I have seen!

The best. Google translate can't even measure up to this one

I've been inputting the same phrase on various websites. So far I've found dictionary.com 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.

Pretty Good

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. - rednbluearmy

12 Freetranslations.org

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.

Great indeed.

That is gorgeous.

13 Linguee.com

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.

I use this daily for my translations from French to English. Shows the words/phrases in context.

I highly recommend it!

Great dictionary with example sentences that also offers and app with fantastic features which can be used offline and all for free!

14 Ingilizceturkce.gen.tr

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

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.

A great website indeed.

15 Word 2 Word

Complicated layout but also provides dictionary and chat translation. - rednbluearmy

16 WordReference.com

Eh, that's what my French teacher makes me use.

It's one of the best translators, plus there's a forum included that people can use to ask for a complex translation, really good

Some very wordy people on this site. Has helped me out a lot

Helps you find the correct usage of a word via forums. If you really need to be exact this site is good.
It also has the possiblity to listen to different pronunciations (UK/US/Southern US accents.)

20 DeepL Translator

Sadly too few languages, otherwise much better than many... Spread the news, this translator is to be tried

At this time is tree times better than Google, you can see it by yourselves.

In my opinion the best translator; far superior to Google translate

Is the most accurate ever

23 Mymemory.translated.net

MyMemory claims to be the largest "Translation Memory", which is a database that stores "segments", which can be sentences, paragraphs or sentence-like units (headings, titles or elements in a list) that have previously been translated, in order to aid human translators, and I think they're telling the truth.

The site is extremely simple to use with the standard looking translate button that most sites use. It has nearly Every language, if not all, to choose from when translating. You can translate to and from Any languages.

When you translate, it goes to another page where you are given 2 possible types of results.
The first is called "Machine" translation, which I find is more accurate most of the time.

The second is "Human Contribution", which gives many additional results in addition to your translation. It breaks down and gives the translation for every word in the translated sentence. It also shows possible alternate ...more

24 Babylon-Software

I'm surprised this hasn't come up yet.
babylon is the leading online translation software in the market as of today

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

The program features a graphical user interface that can be located anywhere on the screen side by side with the text being translated. Both the translation memories and the glossaries are bi-directional (For example: they can be used in English-French and French-English translation). Both are text files that can be easily edited using any word processing tool (Notepad, MS Excel, MS Word, etc. ) Features also including importing SDL TRADOS translation memories (TMX and Workbench-exported translation memories) and WordFast TM's. Extra features include aligning previous translations, etc. - ammokhtar

32 Translation company
33 POEditor.com

A reliable tool that makes the software localization process easier. It has a friendly interface and there are new features and improvements all the time! Great support too!

For automatic translation, it lets you choose from Bing or Google characters. For fine-tuning, you can assign human translators to continue the job.

Very efficient for crowdsourcing translations for software localization projects!

34 TalkingTranslator for Android Phones

This is a free app that I made and use at different areas. I can see it's not the best but the translator is powered by Yandex and uses Google speech to speak the translated text.
