What Can You Use Google Translate Tools For?
Google Language Tools (also referred to as Google Translate) is an online translation application that translates between tens of different languages. It is a free application and with it you can translate unlimited websites or text into your desired language.
This nice application is capable of translating between fifty seven translation pairs including English to Spanish, French to English, French to Chinese, English to Arabic, English to Dutch, and plenty of others. Unlike many other applications, Google translate generates fairly accurate results. Google improves the application very so often and also adds new languages on a regular basis. Anything that Google offers becomes very popular and that is why Google Translate is also a huge hit.

Google Translate Vs Others
Most of the other translation tools such as Windows Live Translate are based on SYSTRAN software. However, Google instead of using the same software took entirely a different route and developed their own software that seems to perform the task pretty well. Of course no translation software will produce 100% perfect results; it is sometimes either useless text or lacks the correct punctuation or grammar.
Unlike many of the other translation programs, Google translate has many translation options and lets you translate directly from one language to the other. For example you may directly translate from Polish to French without translating it into English first.

Using Google Translate
Google translate has a clean and tidy interface. It is also quite easy to understand what you want to do. If you want to translate a block of text or whole website, you will simply enter or copy and paste the text or website address into a textbox, select the desired language and click the button. When translating a website, clicking any link on that website will automatically translate the page.
Google translate also has an internet search function that automatically translates your search keyword(s) into another language then searches the web for that keyword. This option lets you automatically translate the returned sites into your desired language if you want.
