Free Translation Sites?

Hi. I am sure that most of the English-speakers of this site - who don't speak or understand other languages for a variety of reasons - would appreciate a translation of certain posts or articles. Does anyone know where one can get a free translation of Scandinavian text? The ones that I have already checked - such as AltaVista and Google - don't translate Danish, Swedish or Norwegian. I mean, I would take a language class, but at the moment I cannot afford that, and I can't afford a professional translation either.

Just a link to a website with a free translator would be very nice. Thanks in advance.

This one translates from both Danish, Norwegian and Swedish into English. However, I don't think, the quality is very good, but it is the only one I know. I can't make it translate whole websites, but small texts works for me....

A very good "all-in-one" I've discovered is, at:
www.translation.langenberg.com

It does translation of complete text, hence my enthusiasm about it.



For occasional words ....
- Swedish / English, try:
http://www-lexikon.nada.kth.se/skolverket/swe-eng.shtml

(I wonder why Chatleen didn't suggest:
www.speakdanish.dk)

Well, the answer is quite simple: I didn't know the site :)

Hello mariavittoria

The site is in English because it is an English-language website hosted on servers in the United States. I understand that this may cause some difficulty for members who aren't fluent in English, but many of our members who don't have English as their native language are able to post. For example, I could understand your post perfectly. There may be greater problems in reading the site but I'm sure you will manage to pick up much of what is being posted.

I'm not aware of any international forums of the size and scale of TRF which have multiple translations of page content catering to a range of languages.

To mariavittoria and any other members who have trouble with English:

If you do not understand something because of language difficulties, (especially the rules or faqs!) please contact a member of the moderating team. Not only do many of the moderators speak different languages, we also know many friendly and helpful TRF members who could help.

Here are a few links to online translators that I know some members have found helpful- Babel Fish, Google Translator, wordlingo

Enter the URL (www.theroyalforums.com) to Google translate and go from there it translates the entire page and when you click on an other page it translates it as well

Immettere l'URL (www.theroyalforums.com) a Google tradurre e passare da lė si traduce tutta la pagina e quando si fa clic su un altra pagina che si traduce anche
