ImTranslator lets you translate from English to one of over 23 languages. For language translation, it’s a great tool, because it’s available online in your browser or as an extension. It’s a free extension, too, so you can add it as a Firefox extension or Opera extension without paying anything.

Adding it to your toolbar is simple, and you can use the translation service to handle back and forward translation with just a push of the button. It includes a virtual keyboard and lets you see your translation history in both languages, so you can keep track of what you’ve done so far.

That being said, there are alternatives to ImTranslator depending on what you’re trying to do. For example, you can use voice recognition programs on Android, iOS, and Mac if you want instant voice translation rather than text-to-speech capabilities.

ImTranslator is a good text-to-speech tool. It handles back translation and allows you to use keyboard shortcuts.

Comparatively, there are voice recognition programs that you can use to directly translate vocal language to text. Some of the best translators available include Google Translate, which is also free and has 103 languages, iTranslate Voice 3 with 42 languages, SayHi, which has 90 languages, Microsoft Translator, which can be used on iOS, Android, and on Microsoft systems, TripLingo, which contains slang phrases, too, and others.

Whether you want to learn Portuguese, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Italian, or some other language, these apps can quickly help you translate content and improve your communication with speakers of other languages.

Additionally, if you want to listen to the content faster, you can speed up Speechify. Listen two or three times faster than you could read, for example, to save time and get more done.

Speechify also works on screenshots, so if you take a screenshot of a text in your target language, it will convert that text to speech for you. You can simply sit back and relax as you listen to the content you’re interested in.
