Modern online technologies make it possible to complete a task in 5 minutes that could previously take 5 hours. Online translators are one such technology: they save time and can sometimes help even a professional.
Getting started with a translator
To get started, you need to go to the translator's main page. After moving to the desired page, the user will be presented with two fields: one on the left, the other on the right. The left one is the main work area where the text is edited, the right margin is the received material, that is, the field in which the translated text appears, which can later be copied to a file on the computer's hard disk.
Important note: you can get to the Google translator page in two ways: either enter the search term "Translator" on the main page of the Google site, or enter the address of the translator itself in the address bar.
To get started, you need to set the language of the source text and the language into which you want to translate the source text. The fields required for this are located directly on top of the "work sites". By the way, Google itself can determine the language of the source text, but it does so, unfortunately, sometimes with errors.
After entering the text, given that the "instant translation" function is not disabled, the user can see the translated text in the right window literally in 1-5 seconds, depending on the volume of the material. You can disable the instant translation function in the lower left corner of the page (there is also a link to switch the translator to mobile mode).
Features of Google translator
One very nice feature of Google Translate is the ability to listen to the pronunciation (transcription) of words. To activate this function, you need to click on the column icon in one of the fields (depending on which option you want to hear).
Another truly interesting feature of the electronic google translator is the "custom edit" feature. It is realized due to the fact that each user has the opportunity to independently make changes to the translation of a word or supplement an existing translation.
No registration is required to use the "custom revision" feature - you just need to click on a word and make your own change to the translation or supplement an existing one. Other users will further appreciate it.
Feedback from people suggests that Google's translator has the largest database of synonyms, and working with it is a pleasure: all synonymous words are highlighted when you hover the pointer, which makes it easier to work and makes it easier for learners to memorize words.
