Editors' Review


We'll get straight to the point: QTranslate is one of the best translation tools we've encountered. It's versatile, powerful, and easy to use. It's an excellent choice for people who read or writes in a language other than their mother tongue.

QTranslate is deceptively simple to use. The interface is separated into two panes. To translate a chunk of text, paste it into the top pane (QTranslate will automatically detect its language), select the desired translation language, and the translated text will appear in the bottom pane. Although we liked this aspect of QTranslate, the application really shines when you're using it elsewhere on your computer -- anywhere else. Reading a newspaper in a foreign language and unsure of a word? Highlight it, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Q, and a small pop-up will appear with the translation. Want to hear the word's pronunciation? Ctrl+E will play it. This works system-wide, whether you're in a Web browser, Word document, or anywhere else with text. You can even select the translation service used; options include Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, Promt, Babylon, SDL, and Yandex. The program comes with a selection of virtual keyboards, making it easy to type characters that aren't included on your real one. The program's Help file is brief, consisting primarily of a list of keyboard shortcuts, but that's OK; QTranslate is easy to figure out. Overall, we were beyond impressed with QTranslate, and we recommend it for foreign-language readers and writers of all types.

QTranslate installs and uninstalls without issues.

5 stars

"A Perfect four and a half stars."

April 02, 2015  |  By Io Witter

 |  Version: QTranslate 5.3.3


Works, simply, quickly and well.


Doesn't do the dishes.


Discovered a version of this in second life amongst a host of other machine translators. It just worked. I actively sort out a desktop version.
Highlight the foreign language and Ctrl Q >>> translated
Ctrl E >>> gives a surprising good audio of the highlighted words (ie foreign language.
Cut and paste into the qtranlate window proper if you want audio of the language translated into (ie your language).
If you open the qtranslate window proper and insert a single word and translate it you get a list of synonyms - as exampled below: Lovely >>> Russian:
?????????? (beautiful, lovely, fine, great, beauteous, glorious)
???????? (beautiful, handsome, nice, lovely, fair, good-looking)
And so on. Awesome.
I don't give 5 stars for anything: so 4 1/2 is flying.
