Abstract

With the globalisation of information via the internet and English rapidly losing its place as the predominant online language as Chinese, Japanese and Spanish content grows, Sophie Alexander explores the increased popularity of online translation tools. She highlights some useful features of a few of these. Social media site Facebook recently acquired a translation tool and search engines such as Bing and Google have quite well developed software. However, Sophie suggests researchers also consider more specialist tools such as Linguee, Systransoft and 2lingual.
