A guide to English to Swedish translation

Although they are not as perfect as professional translations, online web translation sites are a great way to read Swedish newspapers, and to communicate with friends who write in Swedish. Google Translate will let you enter text or a URL web address so that you can read online documents, or translate your own words. Yahoo also has an online language converter and a Chinese translator.

How to use Google translation tools

Translating text When you have Google Chrome, translating text is easy because Google will automatically detect the original language of a website and translate it for you. If you want to translate a website using a different browser, you can go to Google Translate, and either enter a web address into the translation box or copy and paste the section which you want to read. Translating languages is not easy, so the Google word translator is not as perfect as a professional translation agency which will translate documents. Still, the Google dictionary is good and it is an excellent tool for translating websites. When you enter your text, choose which language you want to read the text in. Google will automatically detect whether the original language is English, so you need to select Swedish for the translation. After you have finished, you will see the translation. If something does not seem quite right, you can click the button on the lower right for alternative translations.

Yahoo Babel Fish

If you want to translate a website, Yahoo has a URL text field which you can use to copy and paste on a web address. You can also copy and paste, or type in up to 150 words in the Yahoo Babel Fish translation tool text box. When you translate a text with Yahoo, you get only one version. Hence, if you need multiple versions, you should translate text with Google Translate. Yahoo also has a tool which you can use with your browser. If you add on the Yahoo Babel Fish translation extension, you can quickly translate a word by copying it or by typing it into your browser bar and selecting the English to Swedish translation. Unlike Google, Yahoo Babel Fish will not automatically detect the original language. Both Google and Yahoo tend to use Americanised English, so you will need to enter the American word (such as 'apartment' and not 'flat') if you want the correct translation.
