Online translators can be inconvenient and inaccessible. Easy Translator for Mac provides a quick and simple way to translate text between many languages. This program is also able to identify unknown languages that are in its database.
Easy Translator for Mac allows you to translate written passages between more than 60 languages. The interface of the program is similar to many online translation sites. You simply places the text to be translated directly into the upper box and the translated version appears in the lower box. It is easy to switch the languages, and the program is able to detect the original language if you are unsure. The final translation is available in both print and audio forms. You can save the translation and the original text in both MP3 and text forms. You can also e-mail both the translation and original passage directly from the program. Unfortunately, the program does not handle grammar and punctuation consistently. The free trial gives full access to the program and lasts for 14 days. A license can be purchased for $79.95.
Easy Translator for Mac is a useful translation program with the added benefit of audio playback. This program is suitable for travel and personal use but lacks the grammar knowledge to be used for longer texts or business purposes.
