Online translation tools have come a long way since the days when they could only translate a few words and very badly at that.

Nowadays, using the Internet, translation tools have improved immeasurably converting huge amounts of text into understandable versions in another language (depending on what language we're talking about of course). Web Translator is a fully featured online translation tool that helps you translate web pages, web sites, as well as words, sentences and documents into another language.

The languages currently supported by Web Translator are English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese. It can translate from a diverse range of applications including Microsoft Word, Notepad, WordPad, Adobe Acrobat, Outlook Express, Outlook, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Frontpage and more. The user interface bizarrely though is only available in a few languages - English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian and Japanese.

The interface is very rudimentary and in this test version, you can only translate short amounts of text but it's enough to give you an idea of accuracy. The problem is that it doesn't really deliver results that are better than free solutions such as Google's online translator in which case, it's probably not worth paying almost $40 for the full version.

If your language is not supported by other online translators then give Web Translator a go, otherwise you might find other free solutions do just as good a job.
