Cute Translator lets users translate text between 13 different languages. Although the program does translate text quickly, we found the program's other features frustrating and, in some cases, unusable.

We were met right off the bat with two nonsensical error messages when the program opened. We ignored them, and the program opened without issues. The interface is simple enough, with a box for users to input text and another below it where the translation appears. Translations are completed quickly. The program's extra features, however, are annoying to set up. Users can have text read aloud to them by one of four characters, but first they have to download the characters. And then they have to download each language they want the characters to speak. On top of that, they have to install some other file to get the characters to actually speak aloud. The program does provide the option to download all optional components at once, but this is time-consuming, and it's not made clear from the outset that this is something that needs to be done. We also found that even after completing the downloads, the program couldn't translate between Latin and non-Latin alphabets, rendering six of the languages useless. If there was some way to correct this, the program didn't let us know; the online user manual addressed none of these issues.

Cute Translator has a 15-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We do not particularly recommend this program; there are better translators out there.
