Translation tool

One of my favourite aids for translation is a software called Babylon. This tool gives you the translation of almost any word into several other languages within seconds.
As I always work with the computer it is faster for me to use automatic dictionaries rather than printed ones, although my conventional dictionaries continue to be my "treasures".
A new version of the Babylon translator has just been launched, it includes now translation of texts and three million more of terms to the already huge database of words and translations that it already offered .
With the new Babylon 6 you can translate a text, words or sentences into 17 languages. Interaction with Wikipedia and other major dictionaries and encyclopaedias such as Britannica,
Oxford, Merriam Webster, Pons, Larousse, Langenscheidt, Taishukan, Michaelis o Van-Dale is another good asset of this programme.
Babylon can be downloaded and purchased from this website: Its prize is 59 Euro.

Babel Fish is the software google used to use to translate words. The only problem is that few software will be able to teach people about sentence structure etc. And I think it is vital to start with that when learning a language

It is nice to know that there are such machine translation available now a days. One more great news I'd like to share here. Google is planning to launch voice to voice translation. So there will be no need of interpreter in future.
