    Microsoft Bing has also started online translation service. It offers better translation then Google and other tools. I use it most often now a days to translate documents that are in other languages.

  3. Translate PDF Says:

    Have used Babelfish for years, followed latterly by google translate. Now my question is I would like the writer to issue a comparison review of Babelfish vis a vis google translate. I need that as I want an unbiased independent analysis of all the positive and negatives of these 2 translators. I am asking as of now I am convinced that one of the best new age language translator would in fact be an integrated solution of Babelfish plugging into google translate or vice versa. Because right now circa 2013 independently both Babelfish and google translate are not really up to the mark of what professional expect of a software based language translator today – Thank You!
