If you’re not a native English speaker or often work with foreign languages, then a little help could come in handy. QTranslate is a small utility that can be of great help.
The program has a simple interface that should be quite easy to figure out, thanks to the intuitive layout.
Thus, whenever you want to know what a certain phrase means, you can use one of the available services, such as Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, Prompt, Babylon, SDL or Yandex.
You can insert text in the app by copying it into the upper field of the interface. The program can automatically detect the language used and translate it to a user-defined language.
Alternatively, you can select a text from any program and press a key combination (Ctrl + Q) to show the translation in the popup window, or to display it in the main window (Ctrl + W). These shortcuts can be modified from the program’s Options area.
QTranslate also comes with an integrated dictionary that lets you view extensive definitions for any word you want to look for.
Furthermore, the program can spell check the text as you type it down. Also, it comes with a virtual keyboard that lets you input any words straight from the screen of your computer, thus bypassing any keyloggers.
You may define the default auto-detect languages by filling in those you use most. A history log may be accessed at any time.
All in all, QTranslate is a nice tool that can be quite useful. Less experienced individuals should find it quite easy to handle, thanks to the intuitive layout.
