    Translation Software

    We have recently had a couple of Polish students start her who speak no or very little English and i have been asked to investigate software to enable the students to translate the text themselves on the machines to enable them to learn English.

    Does anyone currently use any similar software to save me searching for some? free or paid (preferably of course )

    Thanks

    Dan

    A starting point is Google - Google Translate

    It's by no means perfect but it might help and it is free.

    Remember that these things are very limited. When I have spoken to people who have used them in the past they have always stayed away from the fact it doens't translate propely and effectively "broken english" But if they cant speak any english it has to be better than nothing I suppose.

    Eh? I'm assuming that's laziness on their part as it's a popular way of bypassing some filters. Give them a call and tell them to do it properly

    They are classified under "Proxy Anonymizer" i can see why though as the kids here were using them a few years ago to bypass filters.

    That's a big shame if it blocks sites like lingro: The coolest dictionary known to hombre! which is a brilliant translation/language learning tool. If you create an account you can save the words you've asked for a translation on as flash cards you can test yourself with later. You can upload static files (worksheets etc) to it as well if the resource is not on the web.
