What is a good Web Translation site

Hi Guys

I received a letter in Spanish from a Cuban friend. What site have you found made the best translations from Spanish to English

“Google Translate”

http://translate.google.com/translate_t?langpair=en|es#

My favorite site is babblefish, not to be confused with babelfish, though that’s ok too. Just google them. :slight_smile:

I can help, if you’d like!

this one is my fave, because i type in the english, it translates to spanish (or any language) and then translates that back to english … so if there are ambiguities or words “lost in translation” i can amend my original, and right before my very eyes, it’s finito y perfecto

buena suerte!

Thanks guys

Of course, the big problem is working out what they actually meant. Common typos include swapping b and v, or c, s or z.

Once I was puzzled by “envuyas” - someone suggested they meant “embullas”.

That may have been the reason why after using all the translation sites there still was some really confusing sentences.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I must agree with scovanotian in that we have never had a problem with that site

I’m curious! Do you folks have a shot at translating the letters by yourselves first? I find I really learn a lot when I struggle through. Then a translation site helps me figure out the stuff that eluded me. What your vote on this?

I have - with my limited Spanish - but this was a 2 page letter and was looking for a bit of a boost in translation. I thank a very special member for stepping up and helping me. It really made the letter far more understandable.

Thank you all for the links - they did help … but they lost the ‘mood’ of the letter.
