G o o g l e T r a n s l a t e A beta service provided by Google Inc. to translate a section of text, or a web page, into another language. The service limits the number of paragraphs, or range of technical terms, that will be translated. It is also possible to enter searches in a source language that are first translated to a destination language allowing you to browse and interpret results from the selected destination language in the source language. NOTE: Again, all Google tools in BETA stage must be utilized to its maximum so we get the most benefit.
If the user is translating English to Spanish, for example, and the language needs to be swapped into reverse order (Spanish to English), clicking "swap" will reverse the orientation of the language translation. 1 2
For some languages, users are asked for alternate translations such as for technical terms, to be included for future updates to the translation process. Text in a foreign language can be typed, and if "Detect Language" is selected, it will not only detect the language, but it will translate into English by default.
Limitations - It does not always deliver accurate translations. some languages produce better results than Others like French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Russian and Arabic. - It does not apply grammatical rules since its algorithms are based on statistical analysis rather than traditional rule-based analysis.
