Sometimes, it becomes very difficult to express yourself in a language with which you are not so familiar. But, still you need to translate your words from one language to another. Although, earlier also there were some web-based services and utilities which have been developed for this translation purpose. But, the utility that we are discussing today is much more effective and is very user-friendly.
QTranslate is basically a small, easy to use, portable and a freely available application for rapidly translating text in different languages. If we go into the inner working of the utility then we may observe that what it does is it fetches translations from Google Translate, and along with that it also provides the option to translate text using other online sources including, Bing Translater, Prompt Mobile, SDL and many more. One of the distinct features which comes up with this utility as compared to some of the other utilities developed earlier is that it provides an audio playback for the text and the translated text.
Along with these features, it also provides a functionality to translate from within applications, such as browsers, word processors, PDF readers and many more. It also provides a complete built-in spell checking utility which ensures that all spelling from the input and translated text are of the correct spellings and if there is any mistake, it tells it by highlighting it.
In order to start with the translation, you may download this freely available utility from the below given link and after installing it, you may launch this application and enter the text which you want to translate. It is a smart utility as the original language of the text entered by the user will be auto detected after which, you just need to click on the Translate button to proceed further and to translate the entered text.
If you don’t select the language in which you want the text to be translated then, by default that text is translated in English, however, there are number of languages available with the tool out of which you may select any language from the drop down menu in order to translate the text in that particular language. As already said, translation services can be switched by clicking on any of the web service names which are available at the bottom of the tool’s interface. Although, the default translation service is Google Translate, but you may choose any among the listed with the tool. You may observe that there are headphones icons present on the right-hand side of both panes which provide audio translations.
In the similar way, there are lots and lots of features which can be explored once you download the utility from the below given link. As said earlier, in order to translate text from an application, such as a browser or word processor, highlight the text area which you want to translate and use the CTRL+Q hotkey. This will provide a pop-up of the translated text which is a unique and one of the best feature of this utility.
