I have found on a number of occasions that I have needed the use of a translator. Sometimes I got too lazy with my French homework, or sometimes when I was trying to do research the website was in a foreign language. If you have ever had this problem keep reading to find out some easy solutions.
AltaVista offer a translation service called 'Babel Fish Translation' which can translate any text you enter in, as well as websites (provided you enter in a URL), into over 13 languages. For example, using Babel Fish Translation I turned 'take care swimming in the pool of knowledge' into 'Salut la natation dans la piscine de la connaissance'. Or maybe you want to view the entire pool of knowledge in French?
If you are simply looking for one word translation then go to Answers.com translation page that lists words like a dictionary, and when a word is clicked the foreign translations of the word are displayed.Google seems to be offering everything today. And the same goes for translation services.
With the Google language tools you can search in specific languages in specific countries, translate entered text, or translate websites. Also, you can view Google search in any language you like; choices range from English to Zulu or even Bork, bork, bork!, Hacker, or Elmer Fudd.
Of course there are plenty of free translation services out there, but these are the ones that I most enjoy using. Let me know your opinions and which services you use.
