In this article, we will go over our list of free document translation tools that may help you in your day to day workflow process.
Yes, to the extent. When you take some service free of charge, you might be asking yourself: “Why? What’s the catch?” Some companies try to collect and re-sell your data, which others try to display ads. We won’t accuse anyone of any wrongdoing, but we’ve decided to create a service as a freemium business model – free for low volume, occasional users, paid for large volume corporate ones.
Here is the list of questions you might want to ask:
A good online tool would work with any document format and would support all types of languages such as Spanish, French and Portuguese including right-to-left ones such as Hebrew, Urdu and Arabic.
Another great consideration, would that tool break your document formatting? Can the translated document looks in the same way as the source? Documents may contain tables, special formatting and spaces, images, fonts. Would your software be able to handle that well enough?
Is it cost effective? Would it cost $20 per page translate a document quickly? Or it would be less?
How would it handle your private data? Would it be shared with third party providers? If yes, which ones?
Are they any restrictions? Some providers offer free tiers, but they are limited to only few thousand of words. Some offer sort of free services, but then throw in their “fair usage” policy which essentially knocks off all large documents.
With DocTranslator, we’ve tried to make it super clear, secure and reliable. Any document up to 1,000 words in length is free to translate. You have full control over your data (delete files, close accounts without any friction).
