I need to translate some text and was wondering what is the best online translator.
Depends on the language really. And most online translators are pretty useless, they just translate the individual words and so the meaning of something is very often lost.
Personally I use Google translator or Babelfish.
I'm very fond of Babelfish. Speaking of which, I just received the 2-DVD set of the original Hitchhiker's Guide series from the BBC today. Woo Hoo! Grab yer towels, it's popcorn tonite, folks!
Oh, yeah. Hundredth post, too. Spending WAY too much time here...
I discovered, that after getting graded homework back in my high school Spanish class, they all suck
The apple widget translator is not that bad.
This one is quite good, it has buttons for accent marks and everything.
PROMT is the best machine translator from Russian to English and vice versa.
If you want to translate properly sentence structure is very important. The English language is unique to any other.
for example in English we might say "the tub full of water" but in every other known language the subjects of the sentence are reversed and in translation "the water of the tub" makes more sense in most any other language
Some of my friends post things on Facebook or Twitter using a mix of English and their native language (Spanglish or Taglish) and I find the translators don't work too well. When someone invents a translator that can hash through that I'll be truly impressed.
There is a translator that translates greek texts that were written in latin alphabet ( AKA Greeklish) into proper text in greek alphabet. Maybe you could find one for you Spanglish too.
