Machine translation software has made life a little easier and also helped globalization to pick up the pace faster and to reach almost every possible corner of the world. Through the years the technology developed, changed, adapted, and improved to get better and better.
In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the best translation engines that have helped get the world connected.
You absolutely can’t go wrong with finding the most popular machine translation engine. Developed by a company that has domination in internet searches. Google Translate engine is among the best ones out there. Starting in 2006, Google offered its translation service as a statistical machine translation.
A decade later it got an upgrade with a neural machine translation system. Supported with 103 languages, google translate is infamous for its hilarious inaccuracies. But over time with updates, it has gotten better and better. Now with a better understanding of sentence formation, lingos and localization. Google Translate lets you translate languages with ease.
The best part about google translate is very easy to use and for the average user, it is free to use. For an API, it depends on your needs. Up to 2 Million characters per month are free, but beyond that Google Translate API charges you some amount.
Want to have a translation engine you can rely on with eyes closed, well DeepL is the answer. In a world where there are machine translation giants like Google Translate, Microsoft, and the Yandex translation engine, DeepL is far smaller compared to them. To give an example, where the other translation engine supports more than 100 languages for translations, DeepL supports 7 languages and only 42 language combinations.
This number of languages supported in DeepL is low, but where it excels is the accuracy it offers. DeepL adopts from its dictionary and high-quality text. DeepL translation engine catches the tone and nuances of the language and offers a more natural translation. This also means you can’t get a single world translation on DeepL.
DeepL doesn't have the massive support of all other languages, but what it has in its hands is the card of accuracy with its translation, and that makes it one of the best translation engines out there. The DeepL translation is free, however, for the DeepL pro version the user has to pay some fees, but the pro version also offers an API.
