Online Chinese Translators

The sites below can translate texts into English from Chinese and vice versa. For some of these sites you can translate unlimited sized texts or translate an entire web page via a URL.
translate.google.com
This site can translate entire websites using a URL, or translate an unlimited sized text pasted into it. It is now very interactive, and can automatically detect the language that you paste into the input box. This is probably the best of the online translators on the web. In addition to translating from Chinese to English and vice versa, it can translate to and from Chinese in more than 20 different languages. Another very cool feature about this is if you are going from Chinese to another language, and you want to use Google’s method for Pinyin, just click on Chinese for the first language, and then click on “拼“, and you will be able to type in Pinyin. I think this is the best free online translator for translating from Chinese to a foreign language. Note though, if you want to translate to Chinese from another language, I would probably recommend either Baidu’s or Youdao’s translator.

fanyi.baidu.com
Baidu’s Chinese<=>foreign languages translator. This is a very good translator that allows you to look up words or translate entire paragraphs with no size limits. I think that this is the top free online translator from a Chinese company. This site can translate between Chinese and English, Korean, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Cantonese, Russian, French, and Thai. By default this site translates from the detected language to Chinese.It allows you to translate entire websites via their URL into Chinese. To translate an entire URL into Chinese,just paste the URL, and click on the button “翻译“. One additional interesting feature is often when you wanting something translated, it will give you real examples of things similar to what want translated, and how it was translated.

fanyi.youdao.com
This is another excellent online translator from a Chinese company. This site can also translate between Chinese and English, Korean, Spanish,Japanese, Russian, and French. Although I prefer Baidu’s translator and Google’s translator, this is a site that I frequently check to double-check translations.

bing.com/translator
This is Microsoft’s online translator using Bing technology. This site is quite similar to Google’s translation site. This is a fabulous site for translating to and from Chinese from many languages. It allows you to translate text that you paste into the site, or have an entire URL translated for you. You can even have the translation spoken to you.

freetranslation.com
This online translator is good. I does a good job translating to and from Chinese. You can also translate an entire website by pasting its URL. One downside of this site is that it only allows you to translate 10,000 words at a time for free. One upside is that it allows you to paste a large amount of text, and get a professional translation from a professional translator, although this is not free.
