Bing Translator is a plugin developed on the Windows Live Writer platform, which allows users to translate text while composing blogs and various text projects.
It is very simple to work with, even by users with limited experience in Windows Live Writer, as it includes limited settings.
The interface of the plugin is based on a standard window with a plain and simple layout, where you can insert the text you want to translate, along with the source and output language.
Results are immediately shown in the main window, and you can ask Windows Live Writer to use the original text as the hover over text as well as quote blocks. Inserting it into the document is done with the simple click of a button. Plus, you can copy the translation from the primary frame by using the global Copy function available in the right-click menu.
The lightweight plugin does not affect Windows Live Writer's runtime or cause it to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation. All in all, Bing Translator is a nice addition to any users who works with Widows Live Writer on a regular basis.
