Google Translate: Translate websites and Office documents
Translating entire websites using “Google Translate” is very practical. Even if an AI translation is not always perfect, foreign language websites can still be read quite well. Especially since “Google Translator” tries to maintain the original layout of a website. The procedure itself is quite simple. Instead of text, type the web address into the input field and select the target language – done. One click of the mouse and the website opens in the desired language. It is also helpful to translate local Microsoft Office documents (Word, PowerPoint and Excel), ODF files from OpenOffice or LibreOffice, PDFs and texts in TXT or RTF format. However, the layout and formatting are partially lost during translation. The result is only displayed in the web browser,
Edit Google translation and post to Twitter
Machine translations are a great help, but are often not always a hit when it comes to sentence structure and word choice. If you click on a source word in “Google Translate”, the web service will show you word explanations, synonyms and grammatical information. Translation alternatives can also be output for complete sentences. This allows you to fine-tune the translated texts in terms of language and content. Practical: One click of the mouse is enough and “Google Translate” reads the source or target text. As an alternative to the keyboard, you can also enter the text in handwriting mode, i.e. with the mouse. This is helpful for languages such as Japanese, Korean or Chinese. You can then copy the translated text, which can be edited manually, to the clipboard.
