DocTranslator is a webapp which directly uses the Google Translate API to translate Microsoft Office documents and other files. See the official compatibility chart to be sure, but here’s a quick summary of what works with it.
File Types Supported:
Using DocTranslator To Translate Documents
The front page of the DocTranslator site might not look like much but hey, it’s free and it works. The first step is to locate the big blue Start Document Translator button, which shouldn’t be to hard.
Because the webapp app is fairly new and still in testing, they haven’t gone through and verified their digital signature yet. Though the site should be safe, I wouldn’t check to automatically Always trust it.
On the next page of the webapp you’ll Select which file format type you want to translate. Each set of types has it’s own button, just aim for the big blue arrows.
Once the file has uploaded, you’ll be taken to the language selection screen. Pick the current language, and then on the right side pick the desired language you want the document to end up as. Once you’ve picked your language, Click the big blue arrow!
That’s all you have to do, and if you click the view icon that appears Doctranslator will automatically open up Office for you to view the results. Pretty groovy eh?
It’s nice to see a translator that supports so many languages. Though translation may not always be 100% perfect, if there is a mistake you can always blame Google since IT IS using their translate.google.com API.
