Language pairs that Google Dictionary supports

The following language pairs are supported by Google Dictionary website. Did you know GT4T works with pairs that even GD website doesn’t support. If GD website supports your source language to English and English to the target language, GT4T then works with your pair. For example, if your pair is German to Italian, you still can use GT4T Suite’s dictionary feature:

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.

“I must admit that I get more and more excited about your application as it really helps me with my translation process. Previously, I used the online machine translation at sdl.com which was accessible via my account at SDL. Unfortunately, they have now changed their set-up, so you can only access SDL Language cloud through one of your Trados products, i.e. in my case it is Studio 2015, Studio 2017 and Studio 2019). So before I found your great application, I had to visit various ‘engines’ at various sites to look up different terms. Now I can even look up a whole segment in either Trados Studio, Memsource or even memoQ with a few clicks. That is definitely time-saving, especially if you are working on a very large project.”

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.
