Don’t forget to use CTRL+Z!

Now you can hold down the WIN button while hitting the hotkeys to show a preview tip. A friend told me it is not really necessary. You can always paste the translation and then hit CTRL+Z to undo when you are unhappy.
Preview tip can be useful when you read a webpage and wants to get instant translation.
CTRL+Z in many applications undoes the last activity.

“GT4T can do a great job for suggestions or even for some very simple and/or repetitive phrases, saving us the typing, and, of course, with a thorough review afterwards. The dictionary feature is also very useful.”

Google Translate for Translators (GT4T) is a translator’s productivity tool that seamlessly integrates Google Translate into all text applications. It can help you translate faster by replacing selected source text of your choice with translations from Google. It can immediately increase your productivity by 50%-100%! (see testimonials)

  • It’s small! The installer is only less than 400k of size.
  • It’s clean! GT4T has been tested by Cosmin Anton from softpedia.com as 100% clean. It doesn’t use the Windows registry* and doesn’t copy files to the system folder. It can be uninstalled properly.
  • It’s easy! Just select some text anywhere, hit the hot key and the selection will be replaced by its translation.
  • It works everywhere! GT4T is independent from any applications and the hot keys work everywhere you can type text.
  • It works with many language pairs! Google Translate translates between 52 languages and GT4T supports all languages pairs that GT works with! Check out Google Translate website for a complete list of available languages.
  • The trial version never expires! GT4T is a nagware. You can use it hassle-free for 100 times and then you occasionally receive a nag screen asking you pay, but feel free to use it as long as you wish, if you don’t mind being nagged.

So try it now! It will only take a few seconds.

You are always welcome to contact me about anything. You can use the Contact me page to send me an email. I use cell phone pushmail technology so I usually can receive your mail or message instantly and reply to it very quickly (Except sleeping time of course!).

Why GT4T

GT4T is NOT mindless machine translation. With GT4T, the translator can freely choose any parts of a sentence to be translated by Google. You select a part and press CTRL+J when:

  • You are confident that Google can be as good as you (fewer keystrokes)
  • Your mind is tired and stuck (translation hints, sometimes surprisingly accurate)

There are times when we are sure Google Translate can be as good as you.

Translating a loooong list of country names, for example, can be very tiring and time-consuming. With GT4T, you just need to hit the shortcut and the names will be translated and correctly typed for you automatically.

Surprise!

At least until now, very few people believes machine translation can be as good as human translation. But more often than you think, Google Translate can surprise you. Especially when you are stuck and your mind goes blank, hit the shortcut to see what Google Translate can provide. I won’t be surprised if you find that answers from Google Translate can be really awesome, just as Mushu, one of my satisfied users, has speculated, “Google sometimes offers surprisingly accurate and even astonishingly good matches for some words/expressions.”

GT4T can be used as a dictionary integrated into your applications.

Let’s face it. We need to check the on-line dictionaries quite often. When checking on-line dictionaries and you are tired of typing, do you copy the source word and paste it into a dictionary and then paste the translation back? With GT4T, you ONLY need to hit the shortcut and then the source word is replaced by its translation. You don’t even need to switch between windows!

The idea of GT4T is to bring Google Translate to your fingertip and everything is just one hot key away. With GT4T, to use Google Translate, you no longer need to leave your document, open your browser, navigate to Google Translate website… just hit the hot key, and the translation is automatically typed into our document.

FAQ

Q: My anti-virus application reports GT4T contains viruses.

GT4T is coded signed by reputable DigiCert.com and it is tested clean by Cosmin Anton from softpedia.com.  If your anti-virus application gives out warnings please kindly contact me and tell me the name and version of the application. See the about page for more information about me, the sole developer of GT4T.

About

Q: Is it safe to pay with my credit card?

Yes. When you pay, you are redirected to https://fastspring.com/. You are actually buying from fastspring.com, the reseller of GT4T. neither me nor fastspring people has access to your credit card information. Run a background check of the company fastspring.com if you are not sure.

Q: I am concerned about privacy/confidentiality using Google Translate, or DeepL. Will GT use my translation to better its engine?

By selecting some source text and hit the hotkey, you are sending the text to Google server and it will go through its translation engine. The data flow is between you and Google only and it is SSL/TLS encrypted, so no any other party, including me, will get your source text. It is recommended that you only use GT4T to translate words or phrases rather than meaningful whole sentences or even paragraphs.

When using GT4T, you only submit what you have selected and get the translation from Google. Your corrections to the translation will never be collected or submitted.

Using MT or online dictionaries with GT4T is the same as opening the webpages using a browser. The communication is between you and the MT/dictionary servers. GT4T will never upload your data to a GT4T server. GT4T only collects license-related information (your hardware code, the number characters you process). Your Simple Glossary files are stored locally on your computer and will never be uploaded anywhere by GT4T.

 

Q: Why am I charged with VAT?

Again. The payment and VAT is handled by fastspring.com, an American company. They will charge VAT when they think it should be done. Use this link to contact their support about charges. Their customer support is great so you will receive an answer sooner than you think.

Question a Charge

Q: Will the use of GT4T help create a trend of using machine translation and eventually damage the profession?

A post at proz.com forum says that GT4T has led a bad trend, but the only one who can damage your profession is you yourself. I know there is lots of criticism of using machine translation. And any self-respecting translator will not use results directly from any machine translations without further editing. I recommend only to use GT4T “translate” words or phrases within a sentence and not to translate more than one sentence. The main idea of GT4T is to use MT as a reference tool, not a replacement of human translator. You decide which word, which part of the sentences to be translated by MT as you are translating. GT4T can help you translate faster and sometimes better, but you still have to do the job. Using Google Translate as a first-draft translator in many cases will not speed up your translation.

How to manually install GT4T Word edition
