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.

Rubbish - variable from day to day ; inaccurate ; frequently incomprehensible ; today translated only half of the text - left other half untranslated!

Far away from the perfect, but the best (for english-, german- and italian-croatian translations)

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.

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.

4 PROMT

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

Not good at all. At least as far as translation from english to greek concerns. Inaccurate with many mistakes.

Good tool language wise but screen is stuffy.

Glory to god this is the best

5 Free Translation

Free online translator website without adds.

@rednbluearmy I just want to add one more tool in the list. Can you please let me know how can I add the tool.

We are sending your letter dated 23.07.2013 and replying the same as stated.

Actually did the best job for the required Rus-Eng translation (compared to the abovementioned)

6 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.

Voice translation sounds great indeed.

7 Reverso

but better and more appealing than google translate

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

Does not correctly translate english to spanish

Only really designed to translate short texts

8 SDL

International company offer free translations; also includes website translator.

Really nice. love your website. keep it up. you've got my vote 100%

Comparing a paragraph translation from Portuguese to English made by three software, SDL was the best.

Best with technical translation - only one that knew the Finnish word for suspended sealing!

9 ConveyThis

This one is the best of the most appealing and useful translation tools in the internet. You can embed them to your own website. There are lots of choices in the design of your button. Take a look and see why that tool is indeed the best among the best translation tool ever created in the internet.

10 DeepL Translator

It gives accurate transaltion. No need to do a lot of fixing, the terminology is also accurate. It really sounds great and quick

It's really great! It's the most accurate and reader-friendly one so far compared to all the other web on top of this list. It's such a shame it only offers translation to several European languages for now. I hope they'll add more languages soon.

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.

11 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.

Gives context, examples of usage and pronunciation. One of the best if not the best out there!

I highly recommend it!

12 Power Translator World 15

Great application

13 WordReference.com

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

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

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

Great for nuance.

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 Ginger Translator

i am aj

16 Traddukah
17 BabelXL
18 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

19 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
