GoogleTranslate offers frontend translation. Useful, yes. But often slow, and it is not always perfect. Our powerful Magento extension offers backend translations for all your products and categories. This allows you to correct translations before publishing. And it makes your site fly!
Extension works as described and promised - very easy install and support is good. The fee for Google API-usage is described fairly. I hope you will develop this further i.e. with a word overwrite-list for words that GoogleTranslate gets wrong.
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:
If you purchase the GoogleTranslate extension from our site, you will get a 50% discount on the BingTranslate extension and vice versa. This allows you to easily cross-over when needed.
