Not all blogs have translation plugins and not most of them use Google Translate gadget. So what do you normally do if you run into sites with a generally different language other than what you know? Do you simply close it and move on? What if there’s information that you get curious about but doesn’t want to get any further going to Google Translate’s webpage?

Here comes the best workaround for you. Why not install the Google Translate Client for Windows to add to your convenience? I’m sure this would definitely answer all your foreign language encounters while online and translate those documents and files you have downloaded or forwarded to you by your clients.

The application runs at your system tray during use and is accessible via hot keys. To translate text from your browser, Windows Word documents, Excel sheets or Outlook emails, simply select the texts and translation will be done instantly. Of course, this uses Google’s Translation services so an internet connection is required.

Among the other features that you could find on Google Translate Client is support for more than 50 different languages with automatic language detection, auto checking for news and updates plus the ability to contribute your own translation ideas to make the service better. Wikipedia article and Free XDXF dictionary support is also available on the Pro version.

OS requirements: Win 98/2000/XP/Vista/7

Cons: The app is cool but if you’re looking at saving it on your thumb drive for use as you go then that’s not possible at the moment.

Price: Not at all bad for $12.50US for a Pro version inclusive of Fireflies Screensaver as a gift!

Webmaster bonus: You can get a license key absolutely free simply by placing a link on your blog or website. If a new user visits the download site and buys a key, you’ll get a license key. Similar to an affiliate link.

    I usually use Google translate for translating Italian to English and this should work perfectly. I downloaded it and will let you know how it works out once I get the chance to put it through it’s paces.
