SDL, provider of global information management solutions, released SDL EasyTranslator in beta. A free downloadable desktop application, SDL EasyTranslator is designed to give users the tools to translate text from any document and to chat in real time across languages over its free chat services. By typing or pasting text into the application, users can translate the text into more than 60 languages. Users can enable Auto-Paste, which automatically pastes and translates any text that is copied.
SDL also offers pronunciations, definitions, and alternate translations on EasyTranslator. Its multilingual chat gives customers the opportunity to chat with anyone in any language via chat integrations that include Facebook, MSN, GoogleTalk, and Yahoo! chats. Later this year, SDL expects to release EasyTranslator Premium, which will allow instant translation in Microsoft Word or Outlook, as well as an enterprise edition.
