Both Google and Microsoft offer computer-based translation APIs. To make the right choice, you need to weigh in a couple of factors. GoogleTranslate charges for every translation you make, while the Microsoft Translation API (formerly called BingTranslate) is free up to a certain limit. Both offer a finejob when translating content, but some users claim that the Google translation is slightly better than the one of Microsoft. To test this, it is best to try out their free web-based version with your own text to compare the differences. Some useful links:

Once the Editor Plugin is enabled, you will find a button that is added to the WYSIWYG area. When editing an article, the language of that article can be configured as an article setting. The button will pick up on that language setting and with one click, it will replace the WYSIWYG text with the translated equivalent.
Once the System Plugin is enabled, you will find a small icon next to each input field, that allows translating the value of that input field as well.
