Personal Translator is a translation program developed by Linguatec. This allows users to translate text to seven different languages including English, German, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, and Spanish. To use the program, users only have to copy and paste, or write the text directly to the program and choose the preferred translation. The program automatically translates the text on the interface.
Here are some functions/features available in Personal Translator:
• Translation – The program utilizes the SmartAnalyse algorithm to analyze text and translate it to the preferred language.

The application can also track different meanings of a certain word and compare the translation to the context of the sentence to give the most accurate translation.
• Dictionaries – Personal Translator has a built-in dictionary consisting of more than 3 million words depending on the version. The dictionary can be used to look up word or words from the text by simply hovering the mouse on the word. It also features a direct link to Wikipedia allowing users to search for more information about a specific word.
