Top Ten Free Translation Tools

The top ten free online language translation tools.

The Top Ten

1 Google Translate

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!

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

2 Bing Translator

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.

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.

Did one sentence test on it, Goolgle's and Free Translation. This one topped them although the translation wasn't 100% accurate

Always translates near perfect, with the occasional odd error, which is often simple to correct

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

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

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

Free online translator website without adds.


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.

Voice translation sounds great indeed.

7 Reverso

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

but better and more appealing than google translate

Does not correctly translate english to spanish

Only really designed to translate short texts


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

International company offer free translations; also includes website translator.

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

10 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.

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.

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

The most accurate I have seen so far. Seems to understand sentence context, and was created by the same people that brought Linguee.

The Contenders


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.

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

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!

12 Power Translator World 15

Great application


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.)

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

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

Great for nuance.


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.

A great website indeed.

15 Ginger Translator
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


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 language.

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

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