I'm not entirely sure what you mean ... Are you looking for a tool to allow your visitors to translate selected content? Are you looking to provide your site in multiple languages? Or, are you simply looking to translate a site for your own benefit?

If the latter, there's always Google Translate [translate.google.com] ...

Well, something like Google Translate is certainly capable of producing a mostly readable translation. But no tool is really sophisticated enough compared to a native speaker.

If there's money to be made and you can justify the investment, get a native speaker to translate the content. If not, run it through Google Translate or provide links to a real-time translation.

hi all out there,

google or bing what ever it is, they always tell that don't use machine translation. Now about translation using google translator or bing translator, if you use them to translate your constant to other languages , then they can track you easily whenever they want....

So avoid all this things , many paid tools are out there , use them and try to maintain distance from search engines ...

thank you ;)

you may apply translating gadgets into your website code. i recommend google translate therefore your visitors would be able to see the pages in their own language.

There is no automated tool that can instantly translate from one language into another, yielding a text that can be reliably used as-is without human involvement.

That one deserves repeating:

Don't waste your time with machine translation of your content!

Agreed.

If you want to create useful content for foreign language users you will need to pay someone who is fluent in that language to do the translation for you.

When I view a site and it doesn’t read well, it looses credibility. The same applies to foreign users. Automatic translation simply doesn’t cut it.

when i read auto-translated content in my language (and for those who don't know better: you can usually spot it after a few words), the following things come to my mind:

1. the webmaster is an idiot (people who can only speak english and have no clue how ridiculous their translated page content looks to a native language reader)

2. the reader is taken for a fool (which brings us to point number one again..)

all in all it's probably one of the worst things you can do to your website.

In my opinion, if you have the budget and time to do translation or at least hire people who can translate it for you, then it's better if you do it because aside from making it easier to read, it also increase the credibility of your site. But if you don't have any of the above, then machine translation is also okay for temporary solution (because it's fast and free) while you pile up enough money and time to do real translation.
