Translation Services and Language Resources

We offer translation services in many languages. However, our translators are not always available, so please call us for an estimate.

In the meantime, we hope you find the following free translation tools helpful. The first is from Google translations and the second from AltaVista translations Babel Fish. Google offers a feature which allows you to perform a search for web pages written in a particular language.

Both offer simple translation services, to or from English, or a variety of other languages. Both will translate single words, phrases, or entire web pages. Google includes options for Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. In addition to these, AltaVista's Babel Fish also offers services for Dutch and Greek.

The translations they produce are very basic and not always accurate. Individual words are usually very good. But, you may find the syntax of longer phrases to be a little strange. However, they usually provide you with sufficient understanding of phrases or WebPages.

We have used these for letter writing, and our translators say they are at a mid-elementary schoool grade level. Keep your words simple and your sentence structure short and uncomplicated, and you'll find they work fine.

Below that you will find other translation resources and online dictionaries.
