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.

I work for a multi-national, multi-cultural company. I receive translations from other Geos as well as within my room. Google Translate, unfortunately is horrendously inaccurate.

It is easy to use but has some errors, but less then the others since it is used so often.

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 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.

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

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.


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

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.

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