Who likes to move between windows and copy and paste text back and forth when it comes to translate a text? That’s what happens when you’re using online translators. Instead, I suggest you to try Google Translate Client, which is free and enables the fast translation of text in the most applications, such as Web Browsers, Office apps, Messengers and etc. using the Google Translate service.
Google Translate Client is a free download for Windows, which integrates Google’s language translation features with other programs (MS Word, Outlook, Internet Explorer and other browsers, etc.). The idea is to effortlessly bring the functions of online translators into the familiar functionality of popular applications.
While online translators, including Google’s own, are useful tools, they can be time consuming, as you move between windows and copy and paste text back and forth. Google Translate Client is far simpler – just highlight the desired text in a web page, word document or email and a pop-up ‘G’ icon will offer a translation of the text. Simply select this to see your required translation appear below the original.
The client can be enabled or disabled for a range of applications, meaning that you can customise your use of the tool. If for any reason you don’t want it to run with Firefox, for example, you can turn it off, while still allowing it to run in your other chosen software programs.
Google Translate Client is available in Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 and takes up minimal system memory to run alongside your favourite applications. It also supports free XDXF dictionaries, as used by Atlantida, WiseDict and mDictionary, among others. Wikipedia articles are also supported.
