Translate words to any language

QTranslate is a free language translation service specially dedicated to Windows desktops. It has the power to translate texts into the language that you want. Not to mention, it allows you to listen to those translations as well, courtesy of the built-in text-to-speech engine. It'll be a handy companion for users who doesn't know how to write or read in languages other than their native.

This utility program uses the web to transcribe texts. Thus, having a stable internet connection is a must. QTranslate provides translation assistance in Babylon, Baidu, GoogleMicrosoft, Papago, Yandex, DeepL, Promt, and youdao.

What is Q translate?

With QTranslate, you can convert chunks of text to any of your desired languages or directly translate specific words. It works seamlessly across your system—whether you are in a Word document, web browser, or any other application where text selection is viable. It supports virtual keyboards, enabling you to effortlessly type in characters that your default keyboard does not offer.

Moreover, easy hotkey combinations can trigger instant language transcription. For instance, pressing ‘Ctrl+Q’ will show the translation in the popup window, while hitting ‘Double Ctrl’ will display it on the main window. It can also interpret through speech and image text recognition, thanks to the OCR API provided by OCR.SPACE. Handy features like spelling checkword suggestion, and translation history can be enjoyed within the app.

Whenever you highlight a text, three you can see three modes. First, the QTranslate icon appears right beside your cursor. The second is the popup window that contains the translated format of the words or phrases you selected. Lastly, it's still translation, but this time the tabbed texts are read out loud. You can quickly do this by pressing Ctrl+E. Meanwhile, the Ctrl+Shift+Q keys will perform a dictionary search.

Break language barrier

Part of your daily web exploration is to encounter words, sentences, or paragraphs that are written in languages that are unknown to you. This is where QTranslate's job will be essential. The app is an excellent aid to clearly understand the idea of every text that is not in your native language. Not to mention, it can broaden your vocabulary knowledge as well.
